Ask the Artist #10

Q: What do you do when opportunity comes calling?

A: Well, you certainly don’t run and hide in a corner and pretend you’re not home.

You answer the bleedin’ phone, right?

Which is exactly what I did when a producer from my national radio station called to ask some questions and set up an interview time for a certain early morning weekend show.

Which is outrageously exciting.

And terrifying.

And exciting.

And terrifying.

And…well, you get my point. I wouldn’t be me if I wasn’t conflicted.

Georgia O’Keefe once said, “I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.”  I’m terrified, but I’m not going to let it stop me from informing a larger audience about who I am and what I do.  This is what I want.

Just ‘cuz a gazillion folks across the country might be listening to what I have to say doesn’t mean I should be stressed. No pressure, right?

[deep breath]

I’ve been told that the host is the best in the biz for making interviewees feel at ease – a real relief to me, being a radio-interview-virgin and all.

I’ll let you know all the minute details of when and where as soon as I can.

Remember folks, don’t be shy about asking a question.  I don’t care if the question is related to art or not (but, in the end, isn’t it all related to art?).  Click on CONTACT and zap me an email.  Act now – there isn’t a queue!  How’s that for instant gratification?

(well, almost instant…next-week-instant…think of it as time-release)
