... and closure of a lot of things.
Now, late in april I always feel things winding down a bit at work, which is equally always a huge relief. The big yearly meeting between the board and all our associates is finally over. The not-at-all-fun exhibit preparations with the biggest diva we've ever had in the gallery is over (another ginormous
relief). There are only two exhibitions left on the winter/spring schedule, two really easy ones compared with the current artist. With Easter now done and dusted there's not that much left to do, and considering I've been fixing this and that and three thousand other things at the same time the past six months or so I am glad to finally be a bit more bored at work. Sounds weird huh?
Let's not forget that with Easter the really nice spring weather came. Warm winds, lots of sunshine, the trees finally getting some more green - and the ultimate proof of change of season - all the wasps and bumblebees flying into my flat.
I think the poor things are confused by the reflection of the tree next to the house in my windows. I also had a nice 5 k walk in the sun, just happy to know that the season of warmth and light is finally here. I still can't run beacuse of my injuries but I look forward to a spring and summer with a lot of long walks. And with the few extra days off I even found the time to thoroughly clean and air the flat (So much dust and grime and dirt! It's a miracle my dust allergy didn't increase over winter.)
There's still slightly more than two months left to vacation but with less things to do at work there should be more time for me to sit and sketch and ponder over new ideas. I'm probably going to need it, my next exhibition is less than six months away. I hope I can produce a couple of more drawings/paintings until then.
