A quick update, dear blogger friends. (OK... it is "almost" Monday :))
Hope you are all keeping well - and out of serious mischief!I will regain some normalcy on Wednesday (until then I'll keep my nose close to the ground) I am planning to sleep in.Ohhh, do I need to sleep - I'm on autopilot right now.It has been a while since I have been this busy ... (And I ain't getting any younger! Pfew!!!)Will be posting the first horse and racing paintings on the 9th (Friday, this time) which is when the Exhibit at Fraser Downs opens. It's only fair.Although, I might just break down and post he one the stayed behind...Peace, Love Joy and Laughter to You All!
It's Monday Evening now - for sure! Update on the update....
For the bad (?) news: I am in need of a metal frame – either black or gold. Have not been able to locate one in all my rounds today…. I am exhausted, but somewhat more relaxed. And, still need to be ready for the possible last minute call from the White Rock Council’s Gallery's "Grand re-Opening :) … to take my jewellery in time for the evening ribbon cutting event!
For the good news: I definitely made a great move in deciding to participate in this Exhibit.
I learned this afternoon when I brought my Entry Form into the Arts Council of Surrey’s Office that the:
First Prize is $1000, Second, $500 and so on – BUT, what makes it more than worthwhile – for a budding artist such as myself - is that Fraser Downs is holding the B.C. Breeders Classic - with a large purse - and with a gate attendance expected to be approximately 45.000! I call that “good Exposure”… Which, has absolutely made it important for me to attend the opening – somehow, it never crossed my mind (old age or just blonde?) – on Thursday night, which is going to be Internationally televised… whowouldhavethankit! Hmm?
Will most likely be “incomunicada” until Friday for sure or maybe even weekend…
PS.: For the bad-bad news, we have been having heavy-heavy rains with flooding, highway washouts and all kinds of evacuations and alerts going on… so all the above is “if Gaia will allow”.
Blessings to all
