Eyes High


CandlesAndDeepThought, originally uploaded by carolsLittleWorld.

Taking a break from the juried shows (well almost) to wish you a happy Photo Friday. This is my entry for "eyes," I hope you like it.

I had a hard time with the eyes entry, because I have some many shots of eyes. I have shots of masks, of dogs' eyes, cats' eyes, all kinds of eyes. In the end, I opted for something simple, a simple glance, deep in thought, not really "eye" centric but still, it's all you can really see of his face.

I hope you have a great photo Friday in your "eye spy" part of the world.

In other news, I found out that I placed third in my next upcoming show this week. It's the "What Texas Means to Me" show, which opens tomorrow night, at the Austin Art Space Studio and Gallery. It's a wonderful space, so I really hope the show goes well. I found out too that there's going to be a band and refreshments in the form of vodka. I can hardly wait. I have two pieces in the show.

Getting ready for the next round of "send offs." You know, how that goes. I get to send my stuff out into the wild blue yonder and hope that somebody bites. It's always like this "wave" of busy when you're exhibiting. You get the calls for entries, they all seem to come at once, you send out like 15 things, and then you wait, just wait, for the responses If you should happen to get in, you make up your work and send it out, and so the cycle repeats, on and on, until either you're famous or dead, whichever comes first. Isn't life grand? Well, I can't complain, I'm enjoying it anyway. (The best part is when you get to go enjoy your own variety of "vodka refreshments." That sounds really good, doesn't it?)

Yeah, come to think of it, I never met a "vodka refreshment" I didn't like.

Until next time...

Yes...famous or dead. Of course some don't get famous until after they are dead!

So true, Mythos, so true. And you know, with my luck, I'll end up dead but not very famous.

Ah, that's ok. Somehow, I think that fame is not all it's cracked up to be and I'm having too much fun to really notice it missing, right?
