Crunch. Time. (Or, our weekend, Part 1)

Notice: I wrote this series of posts this past weekend, and took some pictures to illustrate… I’ll be posting it in several parts, so I hope you enjoy the saga!

Crunch. time. Ah, the joy of getting ready for a weekend show. 95 plus frames. Painted, grained, and varnished in 2 days time.

It was at 1:00 in the afternoon the day before we needed to leave for the show. Mom was FINALLY done painting the color green on her artwork, and she was happy to be moving on to the color yellow. Around 5:30, I started mentioning dinner, and asked her what she wanted. “Something from a straw!” she said half-way between laughter and serious-ness.

Before the framing begins, the paintings are matched with their frames to make sure everything looks right.

Finally around 8:00 at night we were ready to frame. And frame we did! the blessing was that my grandparents came over to help us, and they had quite an experience as they learned the art of framing in 3 hours flat! It was 11:00 when they went home, worn, out from glass cleaning and mat cutting. At 11:30, Mom (who had ben painting non-stop literally all day) said “It we go to bed at midnight, I could get up at 5 tomorrow morning and finish this painting.” I informed her that I would not be friendly with only five hours of sleep!!!!!

Days like these, it’s good to be able to see the humor in situations… we tend to get down-right slap-happy! Laughter, even at the silliest things, is essential to keep you going until the task at hand is done. Crunch time is almost over….

God Bless, and I hope you all have a wonderful day!
