Glendale is over. We pulled all the paintings and much of the sculpture out of the gallery yesterday, filling the early evening with the back and forth of canvases and crates, and driving our little trucks through the mayhem of Los Angeles traffic. The work went surprisingly quickly with the help of a couple of my students, Michelle and Mark, who were wonderful. Â
Today Jason and I will go andÂ pack up the gravel and the remaining bits and pieces, I will dismantle the distillation apparatus and the tree, bringing everything back to storage, ready for their next incarnation in Fall, which is disturbingly close!
I used a couple of hours of yesterday afternoon to prepare the third big panel with canvas, discovering that I’m about four feet short of having enough canvas to complete the forth, so it will have to wait until I get another piece big enough to cover it. Because it will take me a long time to complete the angels I’m not too worried about this, but I can’t help wishing I could get them all done, just for a sense of completion.
If Â you’re in Thousand Oaks area and would like to come to the reception at the Hillcrest Centre please join me there at four this afternoon. I’m selling gilded raven paintings at a very good price. The installation looks terrific in there and there’s plenty of art to see and enjoy with a drop of wine and snacks.
