The day I deliver pieces for a show is usually a bittersweet day for me ~ so excited and relieved that the pieces are safely at the gallery, and yet I am also sad that the creating is done, at least for a time. Now is the time I must turn my attention to other matters that I have been ignoring, like, publicity & press for the show, and everything else in my life!!!
The days and weeks before a big show I get so focused about what I need to do that the rest of my life goes on hold (nice). In fact for last 4-5 days I basically lived in my studio, spending long and late hours working & I LOVED it. Every so often I would start to worry that I am becoming a true studio hermit ~ but then I could see no down side of that life :) (though, my girls might!)

During this crunch time I also get a billion of other ideas that I want to make for the pending show ~ crazy I know!!! This time I had a great friend counseling me away from the 'edge of starting all these new wonderful project' and to just finish the pieces that are almost done and need to be finished. And for this friend I am truly grateful!!!
So now these babies are out of my hands and into the world.
Three of them will be debuting at 8 Visions & then there are some old faithfuls.
Many of the pieces have 'stories' that I plan to share here in later posts,
but for now I must attend to the matter of telling people about the show and getting them to come.
So feel free to spread the word!! :)
