hump day nuggets: what is art?

hump day nuggets: little bits of the season in photos and words about the last week I spent yesterday in the gallery installing my art. On the drive to the gallery I was…I kept trying to name my feeling. Anxious? Excited? Nervous? Happy? Terrified is where I landed. I saw this lily on my way out the door.
