Oh oh how i wish your show opening would've been next week so i could go! Good luck and all my best wishes! (hope everything sells!).
And congratulations on the book!

CONGRATS from me, too, on the book. I know it has been a huge amount of work to get it ready....in the midst of your already very busy life.

A deep breath and the memories of successes at other opening receptions in the past should help you get through this one with less nerves. It is nerve racking to have one's work on display like that, eh? Someday you may even 'enjoy' attending these things!

Nervewracking isn't it just before an opening? So exciting. Have a great trip. I might have the chance to see it, might be going down for an art weekend mid may ... hope so!!

Huge congratulations on completing your new body of work. It's an exciting time, finishing and installing. Hope the opening goes a treat and all is a grand success for you. xolj PS Obviously wish I could visit and say hello at the opening, and give a hurrah in person.

Yes, relief comes after the opening... but never seems to stay around all that long, I find. Congratulations to you, Lisa... and once more I am longing to see your work and an exhibition of yours in person. One day.

Hurrah on your GIANT news too. A book!? Exciting stuff.
