I've had a couple of long phone conversations in the past two days, about the upcoming shows of my paintings. One was from SJ, who is registrar at the Henry, and my bestest pal. Thank god for her since she's got reality firmly in her grip. The other was from Con, whose area of expertise this is not, and she said, "Everyone has done a great job and you'll be so happy to know that everything is documented and has been picked up!" Actually, that is the MINIMUM to be expected - cripe, anything less is cause for extreme alarm. We are talking about 84 or 5 things, here.
She also said, Were you aware that there was a painting that everyone was looking for?" Umm... WHICH PAINTING? "The one called 'Wall.'" That one left HERE. Then she told me how it had gone missing and she'd been looking for it, then when R (gallery owner) came to pick up it turned out she had taken it to be photographed for a flyer. She said she'd told everyone what was happening, but no one thought she had. We aren't talking small, here - that painting is about 34"x35." Anyway, things are proceeding well thanks to SJ looking out for me, and me sending out clear directives. It's probably time for me to send another one.
I had jin shin then posted some cards and went to Slaveways to buy yoghurt. Luckily I was able to get both out and in the driveway: I hope things are as good tomorrow.
