I'm not a very good example to my students. SPECTRUM, the group that I mentor have their first exhibition together, opening next week at Art Van Go.
I have been nagging them for weeks that their work has to be finished and ready for hanging. |There was no way that I would accept work finished at the last minute... and yet this was mine just a week ago... and we hang the show on Monday.
I did finally finish it last night, although it still needs to be mounted and framed.... but I've got tomorrow!
I always do work better under pressure and when I've got a deadline but even for me this is cutting it a bit fine.
But I know this is because I'm not really pushing myself. I'm fairly pleased with the finished result and feel I've done a good job but I knew once I had worked the sample a couple of months ago that it was not much of a challenge. I'm working well within my comfort zone.
My real challenge now is to push myself outside of that zone and to take my work further... but meanwhile ladies of SPECTRUM... it's a case of do as I say not as I do because I'm a very bad example!
