Exhibition creeping up ...

Posted by Lidya Endzo Kun iLLa
Good evening, all (blogging) friends, Romans and countrymen, and any other friends too. As you can see, I’ve added a link to Jennifer’s blog, and I recommend it, I always look forward to her very readable and interesting postings.

The group’s annual exhibition is almost upon us now. A bit like Christmas or an exam, it seems to have sneaked up on us – but we are well prepared and have certainly gone to town on the publicity this year - it has been a team effort.

Elizabeth is back from holiday, but was taken ill while she was away and won’t be well enough to be with us next weekend, so I am taking along some of her paintings to display for her.

As usual, the cricket pavilion will be transformed for the event and will be practically unrecognisable by the time we have finished with it. Kevin has re-done the floor plan, creating more space. We’re using Karen’s presentation that she produced for November’s exhibition, featuring all members’ paintings. It will be displayed on a computer screen, positioned by the kitchen, so people can see it while they have a cup of tea and perhaps cake. Talking of which, I need to make a cake and hide it so it doesn’t get eaten at home. I will be taking along my own browser, plus a spare for the others to use, a clip on light for the display boards, a small tombola prize and – gosh I nearly forgot! My paintings! I’ll also take along the easel shaped display I did for the trade fair, and try to find space to display it. I almost need to hire a van.

For this week’s session, I had planned to start another industrial pastels picture, this time with oil pastels on black card. Kevin suggested black paper for my next industrial picture, in keeping with the inside of a forge. I wasn’t able to get any black pastel paper, so settled for card. As this wasn’t textured and wouldn’t hold chalk pastel so well, I decided to use oil pastel, only to find that the only set I had was a very limited one, so I’ll need to buy some more before I can try this idea out.

Meantime, I’m redoing my last Venice picture to see if I can improve on it.
Back home this evening , I am wistfully wondering if I will sell anything this time. This exhibition hasn’t floated my boat in the past - I haven’t even had anything stolen, as some of the others complain of (I would almost take it as a compliment). But who knows, perhaps this will be my year - to sell, that is …

Here’s to this time then, I will be back on soon to let you know how we all got on.
