Preparing for gold

What a busy day this was. We needed to load out Sean Sobczak’s exhibit of Light Sculptures from the gallery, so I picked up the truck at nine then returned to the gallery to meet Sean at lunchtime. We packed everything up and took his work back to his loft at the Brewery, then returned the truck and got back to the studio at four.

It was right about then that I realized that my week is getting pretty intense, and I MUST get the panels for Chris’s gilded ravens started right away if we are to get it hung by Friday. I think I can pull if off, but only if I get down to it immediately, so I went to the store and picked out two good sheets of 12mm plywood, sawed them into small squares, then gave them a couple of coats of gesso, which are drying as I write this. Chris had seen the big version of the As the Crow Flies piece in the gallery, and wanted his own version for his home, so instead of putting the big piece in there which really wouldn’t fit the available space at all well, I’m making a new, slightly smaller version of it specifically for the house. There are three tables full of panels for the piece.
