Consider Yourself Invited

Question:  So what are you doing next Friday night?


If you answered "coming to UmberDove's show, ObliqueScapes at Stylus then BING BING BING you answered correctly!"   

I know, I haven't mentioned it before now, but I promise it's not because I'm not excited.  In fact I'm absolutely on pins and needles as far as excitement (as I am before EVERY show) but remarkably, feeling quite calm about with a strong measure of self-confidence about it all.  Plus we are a week out and I've already solved that oh-so-tricky-gut-wrenching-dilemma of what to wear (after all, one must stand out in a crowd when one's life-work is on display, right?).   You'll just have to wait for the pictures, but I will tell you it involves kelly-green and turquoise-surprise-surprise.

I will be delivering all my pieces, with lots of whispered encouragement to them, tomorrow morning so the rest of my afternoon today will look like this:

Finalizing price lists
A bazillion emails back and forth with the curator/BC/friends who have offered their muscles
Carefully wrapping the smaller works for travel
Gathering my physical portfolios and plenty of business cards
Zucchini-Kale casserole (hey, a gal's gotta eat!)
Sending email invites
Making sure all canvas are properly labeled
Entertaining kitty boys who have zero patience for my computer work
And maybe, just maybe, doing a little painting on some works in progress

There will probably be some dark chocolate pocky thrown in as well as a gin and tonic later in the evening too, but who knows?  I like to live on the edge.

So, see you there?

* The image on the flyer is one of Brad Strain's pieces, and I can't wait to see it in person.*
** For all you Seattlites (or Bellevue-ites, or Maple Valley-ites, or Renton-ites) seriously, come on by!  The show is part of the Belltown Art walk this month and there are LOTS of talented artist showing their work at galleries within a few blocks walk.  Plus, cheese, wine and crackers.  Don't tell me you can turn down cheese and crackers either! Humph! **

Have a great show Doll!

Kelly, I know we'll finally get to come to one of these someday (rather than being stuck in Philly airport as I am right now). Good luck and this really is fantastic!! :-) I know you'll wow 'em.

It sounds so very exciting, alas I am about as far away from Seattle as any earth-bound creature can get. I hope it goes fantastically - I am very lucky to be able to read and see the work of such lovely inspiring women like you.

Thanks for the invite...not sure if I've missed it but perhaps Toronto is too far from the exhibit.

Love your blog and will be back...very refreshing! Thanks.
