First Friday 7.3.2020 FCCA Fredericksburg, Va

First Friday was a little different this year… as in it did not happen… the gallery that I normally show my work in just reopened…but there was no juror talk… there was no opening reception… no seeing the locals who i only really see when I have work in the gallery, I’m no longer a “local” well i never was really, just passing though a small town, a small community, like i have always done and like i think i always will

i must apologize, i really do know the rules for proper grammar… i just normally blog how the thoughts come racing to my mind, much like a personal journal and if i don’t get the thoughts down as soon as they come, they disappear with the crying of a baby, the buzzing of the dryer, the whining of my puppy, the list just goes on and on…

So back to First Friday…

I did get to go to the gallery to see my work with my children by my side, it was nice because I didn’t have to keep an eye on them with the large crowds that are normally there, and the “eyes” that they are given for grabbing JUST one more cookie and than running away

Definitely less mom stress at this past First Friday, I could get used to that, i could stop brining them… try to find someone to watch them… but i want them to see what i do, i want them to see their mom’s work in a small town gallery, i want them to know that their dreams can come true… I haven’t made it to the big galleries yet and in truth I’m not sure how, but for now I’ll take the small town gallery where people know me from my photography and are surprised to see this new direction i am taking…

So long for now!
