Today was all about framing. I walked next door to get my Plexiglas cut, 5 pieces in all. I'll need more Monday I’m sure. The frames I cut mats for Wed. I assembled first. Then I cut two more mats and put those together. I had one per-cut mat so I used it to complete the last one of the day. My back is killing me from leaning over the work table. It must be too short!
One of my best college friends stopped by today. I haven't seen her in 30 years. She looks the same. Her artwork was always fantastic. She will be retiring in a few years and she wants to create her artwork full time. She is working as a designer now. It was wonderful to see her again. It didn't seem like so many years had passed. She was the same as always.
It was another great day. Seeing Debra again, getting six artworks framed, matted and under plexiglas! I just have four more artworks to frame before Wednesday morning. Then I have to get two more artworks to West Tennessee for a juried show there.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
