Another big day today. Didn't get to close today until 5:30pm. There is simply no way to remember all the comments and wonderful suggestions about how and where to get the word out about the series. A few times today, it was interesting seeing people's faces as they entered and saw the paintings. Quite literally, chins would drop. I've heard words like 'mastery', 'amazing work', 'a must see', etc. Much to think through. Got back on track after yesterday's double booking by the gallery, and again, the eagles was here on cue to start the day. I cannot thank them enough as they have been there every time I needed it.
One day left. Imagine that! And then we pack up tomorrow at 5pm. There won't be time for me to paint tomorrow, and my goal is to immediately try and take photographs of the 2 paintings that will be picked up sometime in the afternoon. I expect the afternoon to be another very busy day with loads of people coming in from their walks along the sea walk. And many are aware that it is just about over. I will miss my time in that awesome setting and that special time of interacting with all the wonderful people who came to see the show and who have been so pleased with the show. I hope that they will continue to spread the word. :-)
Then it will be time to pack up again and head to Parksville next weekend. I'm trying to prepare a different handout for Parksville; one that includes more talking points about the series as I won't be able to be with them for that Show.
Thanks to everyone for your support on what has been an amazing journey of discovery so far and open to where it goes.
