My Happy To Be Here Exhibition is already over! I can barely believe it. I’m glad we have the Happy To Be Here Project video to watch:
In a flurry of a few short weeks, the year-long planning, artwork making, promotion, preparation, lugging of (carefully cushioned) paintings around in my sweet blue car, painting of finger nails, spotty dress choosing and strategic timing of leg shaving, is all over.
Here’s a re-cap in the form of blog posts:
Out and About in Goolwa. Exhibition Launch post. Happy To Be Here video on YouTube. And, the Happy To Be Here Project: The Explanation Page. The first Happy To Be Here Project report post, Happy To Be Here Project report 2, & the third Happy To Be Here Project progress report.

Whether you sent in a photo for the Happy To Be Here Project, encouraged me, bought art, cards or calendars at the exhibition or elsewhere, read a blog post, or enjoyed / commented on / shared a blog post, newsletter or social media post … Thank you so much.

With 20+ years since my previous solo exhibition, I’d better plan the next after a smaller interval! I’ve a sense of urgency to continue along this path, ‘specially now I’ve solidly passed 50 years of age! I’m not even sure exactly what I’m urgent about, but I need to find out and feel there’s no time to waste!

Here’s one of the photographic self portrait or 7 I took when collecting the remaining artworks, ‘cos we had to take down the sign ready for the next show:
