Taking a Break for Banter

Show is less than a week away and I don't think I'm halfway done with everything.  The problem:  money, or lack of it.  I'm trying to come up with time AND money-efficient ways of framing and presentation.  Thank goodness I'm not showing any of my photos!  Paper and canvas are much easier for me to wrap my head around as far as creative problem solving.  

I made a big mistake as I started marbling last night.  I forgot that I've mixed inks instead of paint.  So when I dipped my first canvas into the marbling vat and looked to see what the result was.........the colors were running all over each other.  Mission: FAIL!  I rinsed it off, BUT there's this pretty cool ghostly image on it now, like the ink simply stained the canvas.  I thought about just leaving it that way, but it really needs something else.  I ended up marbling the paper-half of my show instead.  

I ordered my postcard flyers for this thing at least 2 weeks ago. I just got an email notice today 
that my order's been shipped. Today!??? It's Monday and the show is SATURDAY! WTF!? I
guess I'm going to have to hustle out those things as soon as they get here.

I have to get through this weekend. LOTS going on and I'm ready to move on to the next creative
adventure (more on that later). I also plan on taking plenty of photos of my work so I'll post them
on here......................eventually.
