The idea of blogging still appeals to me, which is why I won't be stopping all together. I just won't be updating on this particular platform.
Why does the platform matter? I feel like my vision for blogging has changed drastically since I first started four years ago, and continuing on this platform which is connected to all my previous posts would just confuse the overall direction I want to take. Kinda weird, I know. But do you ever feel like you just want to acknowledge the past, but not necessarily be linked with it? Like you want to grow and learn from it, but you also want to leave it behind?
This is where I'm at currently. I've just earned a degree in art history (!). My future is undecided and I'm not tied down to any one place or direction. I received a grant to make artwork in Europe for a couple of months. I'm nervous about planes and what to create - but at the moment, I'm just enjoying life as it is and finding the light in whatever it is I'm doing.
I'm also consolidating my web presence! Thank you for following me and keeping updated with my work and my life. Your support means more than you know! I'm still learning and figuring out what works for me. If you're interested in following what I'm up to, follow my new blog here: blog.victoriaelena.com.
I also finally have a website where you can find some of my photographs (but none of my traditional work at the moment): www.victoriaelena.com.
I'm also on Tumblr: quiet-quiet
And of course, flickr: victoriasmyrniotis
I've had a good run with blogspot! Blogging has given my artwork direction and purpose. Hopefully I'll find the same grounding on my new blog. Hope to see you there :)
