I got by with a lot of help from family and friends. Yesterday was a big day — hanging my first non-virtual show, and I can’t say enough about how grateful I am. I had twenty pieces to hang, and no idea how to go about doing it. Fortunately my son is in the show, an experienced artist, and art handler. He took things in hand. We laid out the work — both his and mine — around the room and he went at it. My contributions consisted of holding the end of the measuring tape, getting our lunch from Side Street Kitchen, and putting up labels. The latter is still a work in progress. I double checked my labels, and found a mistake. No big deal, I’m a recovering perfectionist and know I’m not a mistake, I just made a mistake. It meant I needed to redo some labels, so I made a note of which, and came home. Needed to organize the price list, and print labels and price list for my son as well.We had our wi-fi upgraded yesterday, so will have reception in the studio and out in the yard. That works great, but the printer got disconnected from the network/offline, and I couldn’t for the life of me get it to work. At this point I was really tired. A friend saved the day. We sent the documents to her, and she printed them out. I’ll pick them up this morning, and finish the installation. So grateful for all the generosity I received yesterday. Also grateful that everyone involved has been vaccinated.

I’ve still got some work to do down at Toby’s Gallery. Hope you can visit the show this month. It runs through April 28th.
