pigments + rochester NH

hanging the show

lisa congdon and i are in new hampshire. we hung our show yesterday after some fun deliberation - and with the help of susan and adam and rainer of art stream . everyone should have an adam to help them hang. makes life so much easier! [you can check out lisa c's flickr stream for more photos of install and pieces. she's a better flickr-er than i am!

tonight is the opening. apparently there will be some exciting appearances by some east coast folk... it should be fun. our work will also be available online in artstream's shop tonight [july 18th] at 5pm eastern time. one of my favorite things about susan is that she encourages financing of pieces. i love it when galleries try to make work accessible to people.

ben franklin crafts

lisa and i had to get some exacto knives and so we went to ben franklin crafts . the neatest [in terms of organized] craft store we've ever seen.

i also went out for a minute to get some liquid refreshment [it's HOT] and spied this:
vault alarm

and this

perfect 10

earlier in the day we saw a bunch of gymnastics girls running by the gallery. there's a gym right down the way....

think good thoughts for us tonight. and for my husband. who is home alone dealing with some very unfun pet stuff right now....

we are off to maine tomorrow

I'm sure the opening tonight will be a smashing success. The pics I've seen so far look fabulous. Love the layering in your new pieces.

I hope everything is ok with the pets. It is so stressful when they are sick and can't TELL you they're ok. Sending positive thoughts and energy their way:)

i can imagine it will be a really fun evening, and a gratifying one to. your work is stunning. i'm hoping there's something left after it's over (selfishly).
