Setting up always makes me excited. Very much blessed and helped by the kind folks at Chinatown Heritage Centre who were on hand to help us drill and hang. I am so thankful and grateful to the kind staff at the Centre.
This is my third showcase and I still have the jitters. For me, it is not just a simple showcase of works, it is a bold step of courage and guts, to be able to subject my work to scrutiny. Love them. Hate them. I have to stomach ALL comments. Because Art is personal and it is impossible to please everyone. I have come this far, there is no turning back. Haha... I will just have to soldier on and grow a thick hide!
Was at CHC this afternoon. Did some readjustments to the layout and well, my wall is almost complete. A couple more pieces and the July quota will be reached. As I stood at CHC, looking at the pieces on the wall, I can't help but feel a surge of joy. Ya, at 55 ... 3rd showcase... an art journey of 4 years. How did I do it? I don't know but God knows. To HIM be all glory.
Right now, I am feeling the toll on my 55 year old body but the joy and happiness inside me more than make up for my physical fatigue. I love my work.
