Liz Macchio’s work is on its way!

I have been really hesitant about picking up work online. But, I can think of worse ways!

In the days that followed Duncan’s change in whether or not he could show, I had to scramble-not something I wanted to do. I might have not picked the people and art that I did to show in my first show at the Stone Church after mine. But, Amy and Kristen, as I stated a few times before, and I will again and again, are both very, very good. My idea was crushed because I really wanted three. I could have made it work, but curation, and hanging a good show is as much an art as creating the work that goes on the walls and pedestals.

So, I was determined to get a third. I did everything aside from bribe Duncan with a lot of money to get him to change his mind. The last picture I saw on Facebook of him was taken from a hospital bed. I will admit everything from being selfish to whatever here, because when I saw that, I felt about the size of a pin-head. (From someone who is having pre-cancerous cell removal surgery next week.)

On to other remedies: (1) include myself, (2)internet, (3) local venues (4)let the show be Amy and Kristen, as I stated. Myself is always an option-not the best or preferred, unless a show is designed that way. I had gotten a few internet submissions of interest, but none that really fit. I have no time to really “pound the pavement” for artists.

I guess I play nice, because later that night I got an email from Liz Macchio. I looked at the images. I gave Duncan one last chance-like I said… I sent Liza list a few days later of what I wanted. Five days later, I started to panic, with no response from her. I had sent the list to the wrong email.

We have since worked out what she needs to frame, what she shipped today, what I will have…and this is all on an internet handshake! Can’t wait to get it! On with the show-I think all Kristen needs is a few pieces of glass!
