It has been amazingly gratifying to have received my Opus assessment today for last summer's work with the figure. I realise that my life's work is such a small speck in the large world of women artists. Who do I think I am? Living on this peaceful island in the middle of Canada with my gentle husband, moving my needle in and out of cloth and thinking that I might make a difference? My work has not been published. Other than through this blog and my website, it's hardly even been seen outside of Ontario.
Although the main reason I study with Opus is to help me lift my practice, a secondary one was to have peers that I respect really look at my work and give me feedback about it.
In the assessment, the word 'stunning' was used!
