Daniel and I met with a photographer from the local paper yesterday afternoon. Step 1 in hopefully getting an article in about our show Momentum.
It’s always nerve-wracking doing this kind of thing. Showing the work.. even turning up. I brought 2 pieces – one has been out in the world, gets great comments, but mysteriously still hasn’t sold. The other – Feeling Sheepish, was out for the first time, and still doesn’t have the sides of the frame finished.
The people at Loco seemed to like my work, thought it’s hard to tell. There was attention from passers-by. We’ll see how it goes.
The photo shoot went well I think – we saw one photo which looked interesting, but I forgot to check if I had a double-chin or anything else that will preclude my waving it around proudly. It may not even make the paper, so no point stressing about it at this point. It’s done in any case.
I laid out a whole heap of work that I have in my studio, trying to see how it will all fit together. Seeing what can carry through to the Momentum show, seeing what I will bury. I’m resolved to just gunning it – working nights as well as days to get a larger body of work up. I’m tossing up trying acrylic again – the oils are beautiful but oh – so-slow….. I need paint, I need canvas, I need more money for both than I have, and it’s always such a gamble….
Breathe deep and keep climbing……
