You wouldn’t expect a witch to go straight to college after finishing first grade, would you? Even if the witch is talented–which is by no means agreed upon in all quarters–the experience gap between her and her classmates would be vast. Unbridgeable you might say.
So my first art show was a success (by my measure anyway). And one friend wants to me to get a booth in the Art City Austin fine art festival. Since he’s on the Board, his was not a random thought. What? Is he serious? Several of my friends and my husband are all–YES!
But I’m looking at the details. The booth fee is $475. I don’t have $475. Then I’ve got have a “booth shot.” What is that? And I’ve got to supply the “lighting system.” I suspect this isn’t at Best Buy for the price of a latte.
So. Opportunity. Risk. Exposure. Money. Delusions of grandeur? The application deadline is Halloween. Perfect timing. I’m now guaranteed a good scare.
What’s the biggest risk you’ve ever taken in your creative life?
