Getting organised for a solo exhibition is a nightmare , the venue is an old historic building that is the Eastside Art Gallery , it was badly damaged in the Big Earthquakes , and only just been finished repairing
I'm gunna have about 50 paintings on display , and trying to get news coverage and advertising the event is a bit draining on me poor ol' brain blink.gif
Well I thought about posters in all the local shops windows -- Then a lady who was so rapt in a portrait I did for her , She designed this for me ! Shes Amazing !

Shes a bit of a worry CHRISTCHURCH, and the Affect of the QUAKES has had on people
In the 12 month period BEFORE the Quakes, I did 47 commissions, People, Dawgs and horses , and a cuppla sea/landscapes
In the THREE years of misery and uncertainty and bickering between GOV - EQC - and INSURANCE Co's I'v only done TWENTY SIX !!

people seemed to be in no mans land and and the last thing on their minds is improving their houses OR buying art

It worries me too Ocker, especially after that big one where you dropped off the radar for a couple weeks. Octo and I were uhoh.gif
Congrats on the exhibit! That's a pretty big deal eh? Nobody deserves it more than you buddy, you really have it going on and have developed a style that's uniquely your own.
Good luck! hi5.gif cheers.gif

hug.gif morning JR! Oh I'm a morning person, love watching the sun come up. The sky is just starting to get light now. There's a corn farm a few miles down the road and my kid and I are going there this morning, wonderfull corn, $4/dozen u-pick. I'm going to pick maybe 20 dozen and make creamed corn, waaaay different from store bought canned cream corn. It tastes like the best fresh corn on the cob. I slice the kernels off, cook with butter and cream then freeze in sandwich bags, so easy. last year I didn't make anywhere near enough lol.
