Here is my coat, hanging on the doorknob of the utility closet, next to my red and white State Farm umbrella. I had some visitors earlier in the day. They came by, just to see me and the art I’ve been making for the past three days. I worked on art making late into the night, began again in the wee hours if the morning, and during the in between time. It was worth it. So worth it. Mostly I am so thankful this opportunity didn’t pass me by. Did I mention my name was in the paper today too? Yes, I feel like A ROCK STAR, for this snapshot moment of time, while my art is on the wall for a One Day Art Show in uptown Normal, Illinois.
