05/04/2006: "Mad Props!"
Well, the show is hung and looks pretty good. The space is a lot bigger than I remembered. Anyway, I want to thank Ann for not only helping me cart all 20 paintings to the gallery, but staying to help me hang the show and make the final decisions about what should go where. She has a very good eye for it.
Thanks to Rob and Pagan for the freshly painted walls, the spare keys, and the Italian lemonade!
Thanks (as always) to Korry Keeker at the Juneau Empire for the excellent write up in the paper including the coveted cover of "This Week".
Korry has done so much to promote the thriving artist community in Juneau; for such a small city this place kicks ass! Thanks Korry!!!
Thanks to Stephen Colbert, for the hilarious roast at the WHCA dinner...for taking the edge off with his big-balled truthiness.
And thanks to all my friends, in the flesh as well as the blogosphere...for listening to me bitch and moan while always being indulgent and supportive. I doubt I would still be working this hard without your constant encouragement.
I'm always amazed at how great my friends are; where would we be without them? Tomorrow will come and go, it may be well attended or possibly the horribly dreary weather will keep people home, but the most important thing is that my friends/family will love and be there for me either way, even if (especially if) the show is a huge flop. :blush:
Oh, and last but not least, thanks to my most beloved of all, my daddy pooh in Nebraska who didn't try to talk me out of being an artist when I was a kid and who I love with every fiber of my being!
