2012 is a Off to a Great Start

Two solo shows on the books and a few group shows, which I'll be announcing as they hit. The tricky part is that everything happens before the end of May. It's under control. I am prepared. The group shows have taken care of themselves thanks to a fairly prolific studio practice. I'm terribly excited about the solo shows of course, and the crazy good news is that some of the new work has already sold, so even though my MO is to show up and make the work no matter what, I have the additional goal of a personal quota to fill. You might recall I love pretending I am a factory and have quotas.* If I am lucky, it's the closest I'll ever get to having an office job, so sometimes I enjoy role-playing as CEO, disgruntled employee, and overachieving ass-kisser all at the same time.

*Sometimes it's hard to look up old posts. So much has changed. It's all good, just different.

I laughed when I pictured the tally marks on the wall. I enjoy when things can become methodical and efficient and demonstrably productive, probably because so much of this is not. I need to explore more ways to do this, even if it's more of a mental game.

Congratulations, sounds just great! I'm picturing you with all these different outfits, sometimes needing to change several times a day.
