My art show was in the middle of November (time is rushing past). It was a wonderful event. After 4.5 months of intensive painting it was wonderful to walk in and see all the work hanging as a collection. All fall I work away and never really get to see the work as a whole. Once a piece is finished, I hide it away to protect it and then I am off to the next one.
Getting ready for a show is not for the faint of heart. It requires dedication, organizational skills and a willingness to retreat from the world nearly completely for months on end. Those painting days, which if you get a postcard invite to my show you already know that I count them down rather obsessively, as each and every one of them are fleeting and precious. As they go past I worry about how I am going to create enough work. But I have learned to just tuck my head down and focus on today…tomorrow will come and then it will be today.
I was pleased to have created 6 watercolour paintings and 8 acrylic paintings of birds. Not a bad amount for a show.
Here are a few photos from the opening. Thanks for dropping by. See you next week.
