So, guys, I'm doing a thing.
I've been waffling, ever since the name change ability was introduced ages ago, about what to do with this gallery. It's 13 years old and almost nothing here really reflects who I am now as a person, or an artist. I decided that rather than going through the immense amount of work to update this account, I'd just start a new one. I have changed so much as a person and an artist in the 13 years since I started this account that it's really more an echo of myself and a loose history of who I used to be. I don't want to mess with that in the process of trying to force it to reflect who I am and what I value in my art today.
I did, however, discover in the process of trying to open the new account that over the last 10 or so years, honestly since I left California for Georgia and my life took a handful of very drastic turns for the worse before they finally came around to where I am today, I did a very horrible job of documenting and keeping track of art that meant something to my artistic process, or art that I was proud of. The end result is me sitting here staring at a blank gallery and realizing I don't have much to start it with.
My new gallery will still be very much a mixed endeavor and will likely still include a combination of writing, traditional art, artisan crafts, photography and digital work. I will be moving some of the old stuff I like here over to the new place, mostly to dull the echo of an empty space I am trying to nest in to, but I feel like overall I should use this as a call to action. I'm planning to try and go through the art I have hung on to over the last 10 years and put things here that I am proud of, or that I learned something from, or that still inspire me. I'm also going to use newly rekindled creative energies to fill the new gallery with things I am currently working on. I want it to become a way to document this next stage of where I'm going and what I'm I'm trying to accomplish.
I would very much love to have my followers refollow me at the new account, Kaierfly, but I understand if you aren't interested. I know I haven't given you much reason to over the past decade or so to want to stay up to date with what I'm working on, but I'm sincerely hoping to change that.
