The Process . . .

This is the week.  I am putting together all the art pieces that will be hung in my first solo exhibition in April!  The photograph above shows some of the pieces that are still needing screws and wires.   Roy has made the stretcher bars for all of them ( he is the best! ) and I got them stretched and stapled this week.  Now I need to make sure they have no mistakes on them (like thin spots on the painted edges, etc).   I want them to be as perfect as they can be.  I will be writing the title of each  piece on the back as well as signing them.  Then, I just have to keep them safe until time for the installation!  It is amazing how much work goes into preparing artwork for a public showing.  Creating  the pieces is the easy part!
