mixed media collage on cardboard panel

it has been somewhat of a long journey, but i have finally gotten comfortable with the idea of thinking of myself as an artist. for so long that seemed so pretentious, and while i don't want to lose that sense of humility, i have also learned to accept that it is ok to think of myself as an artist. that was hard enough. and now i have taken a new step.
we read an article in our local paper recently about a local art gallery that is online only and features artists from our area. under shannon's encouragement, i called the people who run the gallery, not really thinking that it would go anywhere. they asked to see some of my work, which i sent to them. nothing really happened for awhile, but a couple of weeks ago i heard back from them that they were interested in including my work in their gallery. while this may not seem like a very big deal to many of you, it is an important step on this journey for me.
and so i am excited to share with you that you can view 18 of my collages at art locals only. once you get there just click on 'artist page' and then scroll to the bottom and click on my name. the weirdest part of all is that they are for sale at this gallery, so i had to put a price on them! i have no idea how to judge the value or worth of a piece of art that i've created, so that was an interesting experience. still, i am excited about this new leg of my journey as an artist. i hope you'll take the time to visit the site and tell me what you think.
