I installed my mini-diorama at the Berkeley Art Center a few weeks ago. It’s called “The Way In,” meaning the entrance for the rest of the series. It’s hard to see in the photo, but there’s a tiny door in the moss on the left side.
It was such a thrill for me to have my work on the wall in a gallery! One more step toward being a real artist instead of the Velveteen Rabbit I’ve been for so many years.
Last Saturday was the opening reception. I met some other artists whose work I want to see more of and was gratified to get compliments on my piece. It certainly doesn’t look like anything else in the gallery. I like that.
I’m a little anxious about getting everything done before Open Studios. Only 2 more weeks. Gaaah!
