::: That's it :::

Hi hi followers, today is the day to take my show down. The month went by very very fast. I am leaving work today a little earlier and go straight to the Manhattan Graphics Center to dissemble the show (the next show will be hung over the weekend, it is Daphne Brucculeri ... check it out if you can). I have to do some serious sparkling and then I will bring the works back home.
I had some surprise guests in the show, one of my clients came who I never thought would even waste a thought about me and my art. So you see, you never know who sees your art and it is never wasted energy to invite all people you know ... even if they seem to be the most unlikely ones to show up!.
I will also put up more of my work from the show so you can see and let me know what you think.

Now I have to think about what is next in my art, what is it I want to do, will there be another theme ... and ... and ... and. Let's see, the suspense is unbearable. :)

And last note, my friend Heike's birthday is today ... Happy Birthday Heike, and you look younger than ever!!!! :)

::: Halftime :::

Hi there,
it's halftime at my show, up to now I sold four pieces. That makes me very happy and excited. I also got great feedback from different and unexpected people. Most people were amazed about me printing my etchings on fabric, and some of them also said that they want to try it. It is always good to be an inspiration for other people. - The thing about fabric is, it is almost like paper, it is not thicker or so, just be careful about other things attached to the fabric like metal/buttons/zippers etc. It could damage your plate or worse the press.
I did dampen my fabric very lightly and inked the plate as usual. the result is very nice.

On another note, I did send out work to three competitions. Two pieces went to the Footprint Competition in Norwalk, CT, two to the competition in Hilo, Hawaii and also two to a competition in Christchurch, New Zealand at the University of Canterbury. Wish me luck that I will be accepted and shown at all three shows.

I will keep you posted. - And ... happy weekend to everybody!

::: Show - the first week :::

Hey ya'll, the show is open for one week now and it is a success. I am getting very nice comments, especially from people I would have never expected it. And that is wonderful, it gives me a good feeling, it tells me that my art is talking to a wide range of people.

::: The Show is open! :::

Hi everybody, yesterday was the opening reception, and it was wonderful. Everything went well and it was successful. People came and we all had a good time, and of course I had to much food and drinks, but it is never for sure how many people are showing up. I sold three works, more than I thought I would. I will write more later, first here are some photos of the event.

::: Ready to go :::

Oh yes, the show is up and ready for the opening. My office was closed yesterday and I had the day to hang the show in quiet. Because of Good-Friday there was no workshop time in the studio, and I had space and time to get ready. - It looks really good and also the fabric panels found their place and they swing in light breeze of the fan, and it looks great, like trees in the wind. Later today is the opening and I am getting excited, the tension slowly retreats and I am looking forward to it. Now everything is done, I just have to open the wine bottles and greet the guests and enjoy the time "All about me"!
I will post photos from the opening, so you all can see how it looks.
