Good question. It hasn't started too great. Sam and I got hammered by wind at the campsite on the first night so much so we barely got any rest. Oh yeah, Sam is with me because Michelle has gone back to the UK with Archie for a very sad family emergency. We have packed down our tent at the campsite and are staying with friends until this hopefully passes.
We set up the canopy yesterday but today it is raining and with severe high wind warning that goes:
Severity: Severe significant threat to life or property.
The plan is to do as much as possible without the artwork and then bring the artwork to the site first thing in the morning and finish setting up then.....if my booth is still standing.
Not ideal, especially on such a big important show but what else can I do?
This post was meant to be all about my new artwork and how thrilled I am and expressing my joy for doing these shows but in honesty I am riddle with anxiety, depressed, suffering grief and to top it off, the dogs have had a bad stomachs all over the house and carpets and I'm not there to deal with it. I'm at a loss. I think this is the worst I've felt going into a show. I don't know what to do or how to keep doing it.
Anyway, Here are some paintings
And here are the paintings I did in France
"Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone;
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.
Sing, and the hills will answer;
Sigh, it is lost on the air;
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from voicing care.
Rejoice, and men will seek you;
Grieve, and they turn and go;
They want full measure of all your pleasure,
But they do not need your woe."
