The Pigeon Hole 11.11.09


Nov. 11th

The Pigeon Hole

I’ve been doing a lot of research lately on other artists, my peers. They all seem able to describe themselves and their art in one sentence. So I thought it might me time to revisit my BIO and Statement. I’ve been avoiding this for years. I get so hung up on the very first sentence – you can’t just say, “I am an artist”, everyone expects you to be more specific. . . Judy Grupp is an abstract painter . . . Judy Grupp is a watercolor artist . . ., etc. For a long time I felt like I was not a professional artist because I could not “pigeon hole” my work.
What kind of artist am I?
Can I sum it up it one sentence?
Is there a label for what I do?
Where is my pigeon Hole?
