The Show

The Showing
Spent most of the morning helping the gallery coordinator hang paintings in the little space that I get for the next month. There were 22 paintings. Had to figure out how to hang two of the frames, and learned the niceties of using wire to hang them on the back.

I'm also completely aflutter about the pricing and maybe it won't matter anyway, though the coordinator, while hanging them said that she thought I'd probably sell some of them, at least. Wouldn't mind making back enough to pay for all the frames and mats, at least, and maybe some for paint and paper. *laughs* I have very modest goals, I'm afraid.

Stick Bug!
This was mostly done on a complete whim and I really liked how it turned out. I think I need to follow more whims... and really just do more painting all in all. I think that my writing time is good incubation time for what I really want to paint, and I sometimes thing that if I got more painting time I might actually get some better ideas for writing, as I think my writing brain is wearing thin lately; but that might just be all the editing finally getting to me.

Spent the rest of the day with allergy shots, lunch, watching Tron Legacy (which was pretty, visually, but a real disappointment so far as any semblance of plot or characters or any semblance of the sort of innovation the first movie had for its time and Jet had the wonderful question of "Why is it called Tron when he isn't really even in it?"), and trying to get the tax documentation together for the show and for the book contract. That was interesting. Played Wii with Jet, and then tried to get business cards together for "Poinky Keputch Studios". A busy day, but I feel like a gerbil running in a cage and not getting anything important done, like actually painting or writing.

Eh... perhaps more than half the job of creation is going things like framing, matting, editing, rewriting, and selling, too. And maybe I just should man up to that, and get it done as part of the job.
