The reason for my almost month long absence from blogging: I have been super busy in many fronts! I had my official first show at the gallery that now represents me, showing a sampler of my works and feeling great about it.
My state of exuberance though did not last too long; the day after the opening, feeling on top of the world I ended up falling into its surface! While crossing a street my smile was shot by the immense pain I felt and at the same time realized that my weight had increased to a ton, and that whole ton had crushed on my right foot caught in a gap of the broken asphalt. And so I broke a tiny bit of my heel bone, I had to learn to use crutches, then had to get used to wear a high tech boot, and now finally I am getting back to normal existence while accepting that pain is going to be with me a bit longer...
As for the show... I managed to give a decent artist's talk while balancing on two different heights (med and regular boot), smiled every time I saw red dots added, and started planning the works for my next exhibit!

  2. Hi A - sorry to hear about the accident - never fun to hobble around - we only really appreciate our feet and legs when they come unstuck a bit. The exhibition looks great; and glad to hear that red dots appear. Go well. B

  7. Such a blend of fabulous and...ow!... dreadful news! Wonderful about the gallery and the sales, and well-deserved. I'm so happy for you! The foot injury, on the other hand, sounds agonizing! And to happen while just crossing a street! Good wishes for speedy healing. And many more sales!

  8. Thank you Ellen! Thank you for the kind words and feelings. I am getting better and better and at the same time more and more paranoid looking/examining where I step, terrified not to fall again. It's good not to have to use crutches and even better not to have to wear the big protective boot. I think in an other month I will be as good as before!
