Wonderful Weekend

Exhilarated begining:
Here I am exhausted drained and exhilarated at the same time, my first week at the gallery. Wow, I don’t know where to start, but I can say “finally working in and around art is where I belong.” Working two days straight with no sleep to mention, I was amazed that I was still moving. Well, when the night was over I clasped. Then… I slept a full day away, not sure if it was a bug, or just maybe not strong enough yet? (Health wise)
Either way:
The show was wonderful; the work amazing, the concept was from our local artist & teacher, evolving the high school children. I will be posting all about it this coming week!

Studio NEWS: No new work this week! I am hoping to hire another person to take charge of the project! All work has stopped and I am pissed!

This is the difficult part we were doing this work our selves, most of it anyway…but we all work jobs!! Yes being a mother of four is a full time job!
Three months have passed; my scheduled opening is Memorial Weekend, what else can I do? My husband and son have done fantastic so far, but I have a ton of finishing to-do!! With my MS, painting ceilings is out of the question, electric is not my gig!! Thus trying to find someone to help without raking my last bit of savings is the dilemma! Help wanted ad is bringing nothing but lunatics from far-off! So hopefully… this contractor will except the offer and finish this place!

So I can actually draw & paint there! In time for an opening!
There is a major art fair the same Memorial weekend date, in front of my building, which would work out fantastic for me as my opening date! Taking on too much???
All my excitement is for the opening, but I don’t know if I can actually pull it off!
I am posting some sketches… Just playing around with a drawing of my daughter…..
I am going to start cleaning up and getting this place back together! So I can start all over again Monday morning!!! Wish me luck! Thank you for all of your support!
