Kissing Clownz

I did this little painting last semester when I was seriously experimenting with different mediums and techniques; it's a combo of acrylic, oil and glitter-- very small: 4" x 6".

I just submitted it to an annual group show called "Tiny" at this one gallery in town. Hopefully it'll get in! I have to figure out if I should varnish it or something, because the glitter falls off a bit too easily if one isn't careful. (It's already fallen off in a few places that I have to touch up!)

It's even sparklier in "real life."

Tranquil Tuesday

I miss blogging. I'm not digging Facebook too much. I can gaze at my navel much more easily here.

I just pecked out a new resume for myself: it's a creative "What Color Is Your Parachute" kind of resume, as opposed to a traditionally formatted resume. The reason I'm experimenting with this is because I HATE my traditional resume. I hate some of the jobs on it and it exposes how my career trajectory is all over the friggin' place, with seemingly little rhyme or reason.

Plus, there's no room to brag about my glamorous life as an Opera Super (Extra) on the traditional one, and no glitter. My life is SO MUCH MORE INTERESTING than the crappy traditional one. (at least to MOI).

I just have a feeling that there is more $$$Abundance$$$ awaiting me if I focus on my creative accomplishments, however fleeting or half-realized thus far.

Maybe that's naive. I don't know. It just feels like I have no choice, like I'm at a dead-end otherwise.

oh, P.S.: loving my new sched. without the painting class that didn't work out. Now: to paint on my own!!!!!!
