Well, the opening for the show went very well. The turn out was good, roughly 100 people, even though we were up against a popular musical group for the same time slot. I even sold a couple of pieces. It has a month to run, so hopefully the rest of my art will find happy homes to live in.
I’d like to thank Lena, Dave, Cindy, Kevin, Toni and George for showing up in support. It was greatly appreciated.
The sidebar of this blog now contains a slide show, that contains the bulk of what appears in my portion of the exhibition. I’ll add in the missing piece, and update the shots withing the next couple of days. I need to re-shoot in the gallery.
Now that the show is up, the studio is tidy again, and the bulk of the emergency details are done, I find I have a bit of time on my hands. That means that I can work on the edits for book two. No, my editor hasn’t seen it yet. . . but I wish to spare myself, the slings and arrows of his outrageous sarcasm, and correct the bits that carry over from book one (primarily, excessive use of punctuation, and words that failed to translate from brain via fingers, into text). I have a theory about those missing words. I suspect that they are sucked into the same phenomena that creates plot holes. If this is the case, then somewhere in an alt universe are random bits of isolated story, scattered across the landscape, with words like ‘the’, ‘and’, and ‘to’, embedded firmly in the terrain around them.
I wonder if the oxford comma lives there too?
I’ve become rather fond of the place-holder covers for the book, but I’ve asked the beta readers to suggest scenes they think would sum up the novel more appropriately. I’ll post the drawings when the reviews are in. That was a fun ramble. Thanks for reading. If you have any questions, or comments, feel free to post.
