It has been a little while since I blogged – sorry – busy then away for a while. Actually ‘off the net’ which pretty much equates to vanished!
Tuesday June 4th I set off for Escondido Municipal Gallery where I hung a solo show in a single room that, when I first stepped into it seemed small, but yes, the dimensions did work out as the plan said and all the paintings I bought fit in nicely as planned. Actually I had some extra space on the outside I hadn’t know about, but that was easily handled because I brought more smaller paintings than I thought I’d have room for, so it ended up perfect! Just took me two hours instead of one. Then it was pedal to the metal to catch the plane (which was eventually cancelled and I ended up leaving the next day, but that’s another story entirely).
Box city arrives
…and a little table for promo materials and a bin.
Now it’s starting to take shape. At this point one of the local artists came by and liked my work and wanted to buy a book.
…line em up!
You can see that I like to work barefoot where possible.
Now that looks like a show
One on each side of the door
Looking good! Books and cards went into the gift shop at the front.
The back wall is concrete and the gallerists gave me special nails that go in the wall, my regular nails were turning into L-shapes!
I spent so much time getting the quadtych level! It’s so much easier in a booth.
Almost ready. One more sign to go up, and that box of nails to go back into storage
