Only about 10 days before the big opening and I believe I am more tired and more wired than I have been in my entire life! Anuvue looks fabulous although you’ll have to take my word on that since I’ve taken no update photos. I have been busy searching credit card machines, t-shirts, food, glass for my desk and for my old guitar teacher to play at the reception…only to find he has moved to Kauai.
Through the search for Jeremy, I have met “on line”, a wonderfully helpful young woman named Kathy who has worked diligently to help a complete stranger (me) find some musical talent. In the midst of the search, low and behold, my old teacher got ahold of me and is actually flying out to play. I could not be happier….because even if the food is lousy…not a soul will notice 😉 and I will get to meet Kathy at the reception!
I walked the Studio last night looking over each painting carefully. I moved them around about 100 times trying to get a feeling for how I want them to be hung. My husband just kept rolling his eyes to the heavens with a pained look on his face. I decided finally it will just be easier to group each Artist’s work together so they don’t have to search around for their own work. By tomorrow, that could change based on size and color grouping!
This week I have learned how to remove a dent from a canvas, how to add putty to a frame to cover scratches, that I can never have art in the same room as painters, that not all people I counted on kept their word and that sometimes a complete stranger can make the most amazing new friend.
