When I saw the new IF topic, Hoard, I thought of how hard it is for me to let my creations go. This month I submitted three ATC's (Artist Trading Cards - miniature art that is 3.5 x 2.5 inches) to the Ankeny Art Center for a show that premiered this week. Unlike most shows, the ATC's stay with the art center. They are hoping to turn this into a traveling show.
Sometimes I just HOARD my work. The above image is a scan of some of my ATC's... some hoarded, some not.
I also hoard all kinds of "treasures" that may end up in or being used for ART!
What has been difficult with our recent home improvement project is to not hang on to every interesting bit that gets pulled off the house. I asked my husband to not throw away an interesting (to me) broken board he pulled off the soffet last week. I just need to photograph it & throw it away!
