However, allow me to be blunt. I am under the considerable impression that as a creator I peaked too soon, that I was born a decade too early or quite as probably ten years too late for my own sensibilities, and that I wasted too much time in other fruitless ventures to make this bustling era of ubiquitous social media worth my efforts in such an unforgiving way as to turn away from what I am now doing, in clearing the deck, gathering my past into a clear specimen jar, writing my memoirs, counting my chickens, so to speak.As an expressive artist myself, I really like the idea of collaborating on pieces of art with other artists. We will be starting a LinkedIn group in the next week or so and putting up a website with a dedicated email with more information, together with a mission statement over the next few weeks.
Elizabeth – thank you for the invitation and the detailed introduction to your organization. However, my problem is that I feel I cannot represent my own work beyond the task of writing about it, other art, and other vexing snatches of memory. Ergo, I am not a competent, therefore I loathe the role of salesperson, particularly of my own work, period. That’s my version of Art Without Ego…
So, if you will please excuse me my shortcomings, I’ll probably just sit on the sidelines as you build your community.
