Photo from evening walk. Wednesday 25th April.
Monday: I have decided to spend this week working on some pieces i already have got, tidying them up , sanding the edges and painting them to look.... "exhibition ready". Starting to feel the stress now, finishing the paintings is always the hardest part and pressure doesn't make it easier, but it means i will get it done, And i wouldn't have bothered with out the exhibition deadline! People are actually going to see these works including a lot of my family, Its a big moment and I'm anxious for the day!
Business cards ordered, Id had them in my basket for a while just waiting to see in case i wanted to change the photos, But they take a while to arrive so i finally ordered them today. I really enjoyed making them, But they don't come cheap!
Wednesday: I started painting a more summery sky painting, but i don't really like how its going and definitely won't be one going in the exhibition so i have left it for now. I may come back to it, but for now no. I want to at least have one more painting that could possibly go in the show, so after i have finished the ones i have now i'm going to have a go at tackling another. I Know i can at least do one more but i don't want to make the other ones suffer because of it.
Not the greatest photo as i dropped my phone and the camera has messed up a bit!
But thursday; Early start, didn't get much sleep if any more than an hour. Can't seem to get a good nights sleep at the moment, putting it down to stress, but getting headaches at night, and my over dramatic brain always thinks the worse which keeps me up. However, i cant spend the whole day sleeping so i had to just deal with it and carry on.
I made the best breakfast to make up with the lack of sleep, Fresh fruit salad and some natural yogurt to keep me going throughout the busy day.
11:00: i got in to the studio ready for my tutorial. It was good to see them all together, and the potentiality of the show. We spoke about space i could potentially have, works which should definitely go in, and works that i should leave out. My tutor told me to just tweak them all slightly so they're ready for the show, and if i had time, to do another. I am sure i want to make another so I spent a few hrs working on some old ones before deciding to come up to the library to work on my dissertation. There isn't much time left for that, and with the lack of sleep i was all painted out.
