One more sleep

Can you believe it?
Can you believe that I started this blog in what, April, talking about my exhibition, trying to nut things out, stalling and procrastinating with dot points..
(. i
. still
. dig
. dot points..)
and now here we are, on the eve of the opening night. Big sigh of relief followed by bundle of nerves residing in stomach. Will people like the work? Will I make any sales? Will I spill wine on my dress? Hard to say really isn't it?

One thing I do know is that I am actually kind of proud of the work I have produced. I thinkthe show comes together really nicely and is cohesive in it's flow. Even though the show hasn't opened yet I found myself talking about having another show for next year! Woah, woah now lets just get over this show, maybe have ourselves a breather? Don't think I'm so good at stopping, even when i am holding my eyes open with match sticks.. Gotta strike while the iron is hot and all that crap.

Speaking of crap.. had my little face in the Adelaide Magazine today. Boy do I look angry! Especially so. Why couldn't they have chosen the smiley one? I AM A SERIOUS ARTIST! BUY MY ANGRY WORK! Thats what it screams to me.. guess it's better than multiple chins showing
All publicity is good publicity, right?...

Will take some shots of the work installed and put them up for you to peek at.
Only one sleep to go.

Ok, so not long to go now... 4 sleeps in fact. So for anyone who has been living under a rock (i look like i have been living under a rock at the moment..) my very first solo show opens THIS FRIDAY!!
July 30
Come one, come all
"The Glass Garden"
I am organised, I am calm, I am ready.

Maybe not ready, I look like hell, but we will get there. Delivered all my work to One Small Room for the show that opens on Thursday night and am setting up for my solo tomorrow. So I guess I'll see you there?

irony sux

From such a great time (just reading that last post makes me want to hurl), to now one dark little black cloud. hmmpf. I GUESS NOBODY REALLY BLOGS THE BAD THINGs hahahaha! those capitals were a mistake.. wah. i just feel like wah. i really dislike my part time job, im sick of thinking about money and lack there of, and am missing some friends i guess, and the big guy, melbourne, lets not forget him, he's always in there somewhere. Maybe its the weather, maybe its the mid year funk, hard to say really. my life feels real messy.
and i have bad circulation.
But back to my 'nobody really blogs the bad things' because they don't want to seem like an asshole. But sometimes its not being an asshole, more like a down and out jerk? but i guess nobody wants to hear about why you hate your job or people who are giving you a hard time. its boring.

This on the other hand is not boring. I think its kinda cool. My exhibition is in a coupla weeks and things are taking shape. Now its just all those stressful niggly things like, price lists, compositions and final pottings. Took a few snaps and was pleasantly surprised at the quality. Am getting the real deal tomorrow, forkin out the big bucks. Goodbye hard earned dollars, hello to the moths which will now inhabit my wallet. Lets hope its worth it, fingers crossed.

Well, im going to lie on the couch maybe eat some soup and watch up and listen to the rain. I guess it could be worse...
