There are 3 things that without fail I will cry out as it gets closer and closer to Spring Fling, the Artist's Open Studio Event in SW Scotland this weekend:
"I'm not going to have enough work finished in time!"
"What if nobody comes?"
"What if people think my work is rubbish/a joke/not worth looking at?"
This will be my 3rd year and so far, in reality, it's been a grand experience. And so far, none of the above has arisen (at least no one has been harshly critical to my face).
Most of my work is made in isolation, so it's always good to meet people who are interested in seeing what I do, and gauging reactions.
If you're in the area this weekend, do take the time to pop in and introduce yourself.
