09:00 Monday. Three hour session preparing the studios for the exhibition. In the first group of the week, which involved dismantling tables, easels , floor, cleaning and making space for the exhibition walls to be built.
12:00 both rooms empty ready for the next group to start building. Exciting that in just less than two weeks this will be full of art and people!
Wednesday: Al the walls more or less up which means it is time to paint the spaces. Involving taping up gaps, filling holes and painting over marks. mine was very lucky to be almost perfect, apart from a huge hole which took some filling! having to go home this weekend and still needing to finish my dissertation and paintings. tonight and tomorrow night will be long.
Thursday: Morning. all finished painting, floor cleaned, ready for hanging paintings next week. Finished writing the dissertation almost entirely at 4 am in the library. The first time i have actually stayed past 10 pm. The dissertation has taken so many hours to complete but now im nearly there i feel relieved. Now just finishing it and painting!
