my exhibition is moving closer and closer. I've scheduled 3 days this week and one day next week to finish those last things in my studio. And then in between I try to enter another room in my mind and work on my sketch for the public commission. But I must admit I feel a bit absent minded. Today I couldn't count properly 12 items - I got it to 11 even when recounting!
... I've updated my website! (Had a *** of a time to get my transparent paintings look ok with the white shiny background you get on the screen). Not all the new work is there yet, but it will have to do for now.

I'm right now working on a suggestion for a public commission; an art piece to be in the stairs of a school (for students age 6-16). Yesterday I went to the school to check how some colours appear on the actual location, to make some real life size tests (no, the art piece is not going to be in brown paper ...) and to double check some measurements. I got some helpers (age around 7-8) who turned up every break to assist me - and ask questions. Today I realized that some of the measurements were really weird ... but it doesn't matter; as one boy totally made my day:
- Wow - you are an ARTIST! Having you as mum is like having Leonardo da Vinci as your dad! WOW! That is so cool! Do you also construct and invent things?
here I was so tempted to totally lie, but said:
- I can also build some things, yes
- You are very lucky to not be living in France because there girls are not allowed to be artists at all! At least not 2 years ago.
- I didn't know that, I said
this also made me smile: Famous paintings improved by Cats
.... I'm so cool ....

This has been the best course I have ever taken and I have learned so much. It's been several years since I studied at university level and now I really think I should take some more independent courses (though I can't expect them to be as great as this one!)
But right now I have to clean my mind and concentrate on writing a short text for my up-comig exhibition.
