Today officially marks 8 weeks till opening night. It’s bare knuckle time.
I have sent out real ‘paper’ invitations. Even the mayor accepted my invite to be a guest – although he does have to dash off to be official and open some other important function.
I am very close to having the 24 drawings I set out to create. I have written my essay – artist statement.
I have come up with a dozen different ideas for other works – but – I have not allowed myself to get too side tracked… yet…
I have had mild panic attacks. I have questioned my sanity. I have been overly optimistic about how long a couple of the pieces would take to do. I have been disappointed when the idea in my head didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to.
I have been on the biggest roller-coaster ride of emotions when it comes to my art. But I wouldn’t change it for anything. This process has taught me a lot about myself, and my work.
I still have some star shapes swimming in my mind so there may be more than 24 drawings… and a few 3d pieces too 🙂
I am very proud of what I have created so far and I seriously can’t wait to show it all off!
8 weeks and counting!
