Got all the paintings wrapped, all 18 of them) and ready for the next step of packing them into moving mirror/picture boxes. That will take place tomorrow.

It's been a whirlwind week, along with also getting the icon board constructed for the next centenary commission. The company built it differently then I designed but I should be able to work with it as is. It's big and heavy!
I dread the 4am Monday wake-up but with lots of caffeine, I'll manage. I need to get the paintings loading by 5am, as I can't risk having them in the van overnight, and be at Horseshoe Bay by 5:30am to catch the first 6:30am ferry to Nanaimo. I estimate being in Parksville around 9:30am and the Centre opens at 10am to begin hanging the show. If all goes well, I'll get a chance to have coffee with a dear friend and then, depending on the weather, I may be able to take in a few totems (Duncan?) before catching a ferry back to North Vancouver. I will ge very relieved to see the series hung and ready to go.
Andre Prevost, began his work in theatre in the late 70s after completing his studies at the Banff School of Fine Arts, and in his iconography in 1980, and having a large body of work in each. He has since been based in Western Canada; North Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, and now back on the West Coast.
