I did manage to make some decisions and apply to one major show. (That's good.)
I put together a package for a client giving a commissioned painting-to-be to a friend. For that, I handmade a mini portfolio of works similar in scope to the gift. It's a pretty present to give that offers the recipient a glimpse of what's to come. Putting that together caused me to learn a bit more about Word ... so I could put in a background for the portfolio pages that would actually print. And, I earned some practice with a special tape dispenser for use in mounting photos. I'm sure all of these newly acquired skills bode well for my future as an artist.
