Yesterday all of the work was packed up and delivered for the show. It filled two cars and emptied my studio completely. There were people on hand to unload and in no time they were getting to work on taking down the previous show to get my paintings up last night and today. We visited a bit and then my work was done.
Dinner at the Cheasecake Factory to celebrate and I am giddy with the knowledge that I finished a challenge I set for myself, whatever the outcome, I did my very best and painted every moment I had in the last couple of months. Because originally I was to have half of the gallery, it was not as intimidating, and then when I learned I was to have all of the gallery it was just a progression and reason to work harder (if that was possible.)
Hopefully people will come to see the show and already a good thing is coming out of it with the article that will run. The photographer came by yesterday and took the time to set up shots and play with angles to try to photograph only my work in the studio space. He was very kind and we had a nice conversation while he photographed me and my work.
I have picked out some music to play for the opening and now I release the whole thing to the universe and my highest good. I have done all I can and now the work speaks for itself. With new paintings on the horizon I will get back to it and work on filling the studio once again, as many of these pieces will go back to the gallery in Delaware when the show is over in a month.
Right now I am just very happy at the prospect of the time pressure being over and a great show is about to open. Time to take some more pictures!
