09/26/2007: "Picking up the Pieces"
So, I picked up the unsold paintings from the gallery this afternoon. Working small has some advantages, for one thing, it's really easy to move them.
And another piece sold! Yeah!!! Now, I just need to get prints made from my favorites and then get the ones that sold before the opening mailed off.
Overall I feel a lot better about how everything went down. I haven't started painting again, the back pain is really distracting creatively speaking. I had to go to the hospital for x-rays today and hopefully I'll know more by the weekend.
I think the important thing for me now is to try and stay on track with my life. Prior to the back injury I'd started going to the gym 4-5 nights a week, was eating super healthy, drinking lots of water and getting 8 hours of sleep every night. After the injury all that went to hell.
Now I'm realizing that even if I can't go to the gym I can still eat healthy, drink water, and try to get enough sleep at night.
Oh, btw, Aaron and I went and saw Resident Evil: Extinction and it was a lot of fun (despite the horrid reviews)...sure, it steals from a hundred other films but it's a ZOMBIE movie! BTW, the review in the Boston Globe called people who love zombie movies "zommeliers"...too funny!
