You might have seen that quote from my grandmother before, here or elsewhere.
Exhibition fast approaching! A sort of limbo prevails before the final photography and framing. Lots of work stacked up. Will it be enough? Do they belong together? Is this a collection of paintings or a body of work? Is it two separate batches? Does that matter? Are they really works of art?
Who knows the answers to all these questions! I won’t even dignify that with a question mark.
The FA Cup (replay) is on in the background. Half time chat, rapid-fire passion. Opinions, onlookers’ commentary, ideas for improvement, hints at weaknesses, highlights of “quality”…
Back to the second half. Goal or no goal, those fellows are playing to the best of their ability right now. And that’s it.
The quote applies to them too, but for me it is heartening. On with the preparations. And, happy Mothers’ Day!
