I did it!! I got 8 of my paintings into one of my favorite stores in San Diego called Make Good, which sells handmade art jewelry, clothing and other recycled goodies. I can't believe how confident I was when I was presenting my work to the owner of the store Sophia Hall. The paintings she did not select did not hurt my feelings. This was a huge step for me on so many different levels. After all I am a very sensitive person, and am hesitant to share my art with others. It's been a slow process to let go of any attachment I have to my work.
If you are in the San Diego area stop by the store and check it out. There is a lot of eye candy! Thanks to Sophia Hall for support local artist in the San Diego area!
