Some days are filled with excitement, painting, colours, creativity, loud music, exhilaration.
Then there are the days of grudging work, finishing, resin coating, attaching backings and wires, packaging pieces, signing the backs and composing titles, liaising with galleries as to their choice of work, driving all over town and purchasing packaging materials, ordering new panels, picking up the new panels some days later, wearing the secretary hat.
And that is what I have been doing for the past week. Today and in the next couple of days, I'm packaging work that will be shipped to Whistler Village Art Gallery. Taxing physical work, but also important in the process of letting go the work that I have lived and breathed for the past months.
