I'm very tickled with this piece - made a lovely center for a display.
This display is Debby's - the woman who is managing the gallery and who invited me to join up from a conversation we had in a mall (of all places - those of you who know me know I don't really go to malls) during an art show I visited and I even ordered a beautiful purse! You can visit her and see her amazing work here at:
This is one of the walls as you walk in to the gallery (mind you,this was weekend one of set up - we don't open until April 12th or 14th).
Artists hard at work setting things up - it's always the most intense part of anything, isn't it? Even when I danced and taught, setting up the stage was much more intense than actually doing the show! Something in preparation time breeds anxiety, but excitement as well, thankfully!
Here is my sweet Paul, working out where which piece goes, how much room it needs, how many anchors it will need, and etc., etc. I am so thankful for him because, among a million other reasons, I would have NO IDEA how to install an entire wall of art. He is my saving grace, repeatedly. We make a great team, as I keep him supplied in cups of hot tea and such. ( as he is English -that is a big necessity)
Here is the display from Artsy Matilda! All of my children in one spot on this wall! It's hard to believe and very humbling and fulfilling. There are gobs of words to express it, but it's a very surreal thing to know I am really doing this. I am one happy, lucky, grateful and blessed woman.
