18 September 2009.
This is the first of a series of reports resulting from the blog triage class I have just completed.
I am hoping to summarize the highs and lows of my practice in the previous week so that I can feel proud of any achievements and prioritise or commit to the waste bin those jobs that didn’t get done.
This week has been really eventful –
• The slab for my studio has been poured and I have decided that I will seal the concrete floor. I am very excited about the amount of space I will have.
• My wonderful gallery in Melbourne sold Welcome to the Neighbourhood We hope You Fit In from my exhibition Portraits of the Unknown. Yipee cashflow!

• I sent 4 of 5 works to Kick Arts Galleries in Cairns where Curator Sam Creyton has asked me to be part of an exhibition showing artists who work with paper.
• I sent Stargazzy off to Arteral Gallery in Sydney to be part of the Tickled Pink Exhibition.
• I started work on a series of postcard sized watercolour works.
• I resolved to enter the Liverpool Art Prize.
I didn’t get around to -
• Sending off CD’s of images from Diary Notes from a New World to several galleries.
• Working on my entry for the Chapman and Bailey Competition in Melbourne.
There have been lots of tradesmen and deliveries so it has been a bit of a disjointed week ……can’t wait to get a run at some work in my new studio.
Now that I review this it does seem like navel gazing. Don’t know if it should be a post (aired in public rather than in a journal if I managed to keep one) so dear readers let me know what you think.
