sneak peeks.

I am totally exhausted but both of the shows are installed. The group show got done yesterday and my solo show today. Both installs went smoothly and much quicker then I expected. YAY!

small stories stressed me out a bit as I was concerned about fitting all the work, but with creative problem solving it got done and for such a small and quirky space I think it looks great. The window will draw people in for sure.

My solo show was the opposite, I was afraid I would not have enough work. But I really wanted to treat the works as paintings and drawings and give them room to breathe. And though it feels a little sparse in comparison to other shows of mine, I feel that it is exactly as it should be.

I truly hope to see many of you at either opening and pictures of the installations will follow the openings. Now I need to get to the labels.

Thank you so much for the sneak peeks! Tantalising! I have NO doubt that both shows will be deliciously lapped up by the multitudes. This is one of those times when I wish I had access to Dr Who's tardis or a "beam me up Scotty" so that I could quickly & inexpensively cross the great divide between hemispheres! All the very best of luck, I hope you get lots of positive responses!
