I'm still here
My friend is getting out of the hospital tomorrow afternoon, a day later than scheduled but we are just happy he is coming home. He was able to eat for the first time in a week! They removed all the cancer that they could see and we are praying that the chemotherapy will take care of the rest. It is going to be a rough ride and I am hoping to do as much to help them as possible. One thing is for sure is I won't let them near blee until she is 100% well because he can't afford to get sick right now.
On a more positive note I have a show lined up at a local cafe. Not just a local cafe, but my favorite cafe. mmmmm curried hummus and veggie sandwich... mmm popovers, yes the place where the popover obsession came from. I will be hanging my collages and some framed prints the beginning of May for a month. I'm going to try and arrange some sort of opening with them. I'm also thinking about doing a large print and a large canvas collage to draw attention to the whole shebang. Break up all the smaller works with something big(ish) and bold. We'll see if I can actually pull it off. Regardless I've been a productive gal over the years and have a lot of work to pick from but will be focusing on more recent stuff.
A great thing about these mixed-media pieces on canvas is that I don't need to frame them and this saves me hassle and more importantly money.
Time to wind down, eat dinner and hopefully go to bed early. We have There Will be Blood with Daniel Day Lewis rented, but I am not sure if I am in a good head space for that right now.
Goodnight and good morning.
