The End is in Sight

Monday all the rest of my "paperwork" is due to the Littleton Museum. The invitation is already at the printers;  I must have my artist's bio, mailing list and painting price list to Lorena on Monday. From there I have 2.5 weeks until the paintings must be delivered and then one week after that is the opening, September 15, from 5-7:30 pm. Seems like a lot of work for a 1.5 hour opening, but I am sure they don't shoo everyone out at the stroke of 7:30, or maybe they do!

I have been working on one last fun painting as well as continuing to fine tune those that are in the "finished" category. This past week I got my artist's statement where I want it, and today compiled the press release. I will sit on that over the weekend and then send it out to a few publications on Monday. The newspapers will come later.

I ordered the last of the frames I need and they will be ready the weekend before the paintings are due to the museum. That was cutting it a bit close, but 5 weeks seemed like enough time. It is, but barely. Varnishing is still being held off on too many paintings as I decide whether they are really where I want them or not. I have come to believe that a painting is never finished until it sells!

 Now a prayer to the god of the stock market.

We are praying. And you are WORKING. His promise is to prosper whatever you put your hands to do...and you have been working those hands. I'm so proud for you.

Ive been telling everyone I can about your show and directing them to your blog site. I believe you will enjoy great success.

How will you manage to work all day and do the gallery appearances?? I guess that's time you won't be in the studio... or you can set up and paint on site, just to add dimension to your show and get more done... as my Dad would say, "Tie a broomstick to your pants [sic] and you can sweep the floor while you're at it!!" hahaha

Best wishes and prayers for His Presence and Joy with you,

I plan to ask the museum if I may set up and paint on-site. There is an old farm/ranch on the premises as the museum used to be called the Littleton HISTORICAL Museum. So I agree with what your dad said. Thanks for your assistance with prayers and word of mouth. I hope you can come!
