I spent like three hours on the phone with B. last night gossiping and talking about art and stuff. It was so, so good to talk to her. I really had been needing to get some input on stuff I’ve been working on, and to have to talk it through and figure things out.
I realized that the thing I have been craving lately is feedback, or maybe more accurately phrased, artistic community. Specifically, one that is supportive and constructive and challenging. I’m sure that I can find at least some of that here in Columbus, but it doesn’t help that I am too shy for my own good. Oops.
Idea: a regular get-together of artists of all disciplines for the purpose of sharing work and getting constructive feedback.
Also, I can’t believe I’m 30 years old and just now figuring out exactly why it is that everybody wants to live in NYC, but I get it now, I totally get it.
