I took the photo above this morning--it shows some of the paintings I'm getting ready to take to Circa Gallery in Minneapolis next week. I still have a couple that need work, and lots of details, including photography and computer work, to take care of. The photo below is of most of the smaller work (again, a few are still in progress)that I'll be shipping to Milwaukee on Monday to the First Unitarian Society for their gallery space. And again,lots of small ends to wrap up.
I've spent the past week picking away at being ready, at times with little sense of progress. The studio is crowded, and the number of paintings overwhelming (these shots tell only part of the story.) I'm trying to move from one thing to another with a sense of purpose and focus but at times--in spite of a deep conviction of the importance of living in the moment--I just want it to be over! I don't really want to complain though--this is a life with a great many ebbs and flows, always changing, and for the most part I enjoy the ride.
(But hey, any little elves that want to visit my studio in the night to attach picture wire and sand the edges of panels...really, don't hesitate.)
