Can't wait to get on the road again. Only about 3 weeks away from my first show of the year. Alot has changed since my last post on here, including my address. So don't go to the little white house behind the post office in Concord, GA looking for me. I don't live there anymore. I enjoyed my time there and have some great memories. I just had to get out for fear of losing my sanity. I'd lost all desire to pretty much do anything, including making art and living.
I came to realize that I'm hauling way too much of the past around with me. Both material and personal baggage that has me weighted down. So, I'll likely be thinning out my collection in the near future. I've gotten my head back thinking right and gotten back to work. I'm my own worst critic, but I'm very happy with the stuff i've done lately. Hope the public enjoys it too.
The most important thing that I've learned during all of this is how much most people care. Also learned how to drop a few folks out of my life that were a hinderance to it. I'm really looking forward to my next couple of shows, Folk to Fine Arts in Commerce, GA and the Doo-Nanny in Seale, AL.... The Doo-Nanny is my favorite show of the year, by far. It's the one place where I can be all the SamG that I want to be. Should be meeting a lot of people I know from the internet but never met in person. Look forward to that too. I love doing shows. Love to get out and meet new people, experience new things, and hear some cool music. Looking at some new markets to work on this year too.
For those that don't know me well, I worked a travelling job for 5 years before I decided to pursue art as a career. I worked for Advance Auto Parts setting up and remodeling stores. Got to see a lot of the country that I wouldn't have ever seen. For the record, Cape Cod, Mass has the ugliest people in the USA. It put the road in my blood though, desire to go, see, and experience. I'd turned into a hermit the last several months. Now I just can't wait to get on the road again........
