Dumpster full of art
pinhole camera

Today I found more old treasures, drawings and painting of nudes, the kiss series, Lucas as a baby, kids' drawings, flowers, purple prickly pears, crossdressers dressing, poems, and letters. I'm saving about 20% with the rest to the earth toned dumpster.

I'm so sad to hear you're having to put art in the dumpster! Of course you can't hold onto everything... but what about holding an "artist's studio sale" or something and selling your unwanted non-mail art pieces and, I don't know, doing something else (trade? giveaway?) with unwanted mail art that you might not want to actually sell? Advertise it in the classified section and hold it on the same day as people have garage sales. I bet people would love to buy paintings inexpensively... x

Thanks, I do have a third stack that is quite small and currently full of nudes. The stack is not-save, not dumpster. Maybe I will hold a special LiveJournal sale. But what I call art is more like the trail of my art process, a growing body of work that simply must be edited with 20 20 hind sight otherwise it is overpoweringly large. Art-Thirst has been looking into his old negatives also as a recurring part of an art maturing process. What editing the old leads to is a commitment to the new. The keepers renew a sense of personal foundation and point to evolving paths of creation.

I had a very rich pre-Internet art life, years and years of letters, piles of sketchbooks, boxes of photos, an unfinished collaborative novel and a finished collaborative novel. paper paper paper all creative stuff that I call art but not saleable or valuable to anyone but me, the dumpster is a good place for most of it. But I will post the non-dumpster pile for grabs on LJ. Later later later.
