Getting ready for a show is both exiting and nerve racking. Picking the painting you want to show and then the framing. Oh I hate the framing. I am not set up to do it myself so off to the frame shop I go. I am always sooo nervous about leaving my pastels. I have had a few disasters. And the cost! How will I ever be able to afford to frame all of them? Out comes the over extended credit card, I say to myself "I will pay it back when the paintings sell" and then you pray to they will. . Then the labeling the hanging and the show it's self. Standing around your paintings feeling a bit awkward not knowing what to do with yourself. sometimes I stand back so I can hear the comments being made with out them knowing I am the artist. (hint be careful when you are commenting on art work you never know who is listening!) Anyway it has to be done and I can only hope for the best. Wish me luck!
