a little busy

Oh my…it’s been awhile. I had hoped to document my every move over the last few months, but I got a little too busy.

I finished up the year at school. The final project was a group video using paper. I haven’t really showed it around, but it’s kind of fun.

Pieces of a Lonely Day

I had also been very busy preparing for a photography show for the CONTACT Toronto Photography Festival 2009. It was the first time I had an entire wall to myself. This wall being a beautiful space on the 2nd floor of the Gladstone Hotel.

The hard part is the long list of decisions to be made about presentation. It went on for months. I was about to order custom mounting, when I saw an example of a glass-less mounting that I really liked-I always prefer images without the glare of glass-and I embarked on the unthinkable by doing all of my own mounting and making the frames from paint panels with less than 3 weeks to go.

There were so many ways in which things could have gone wrong but I was careful to always have back-ups..and someone stepped in and helped me through the entire hanging process. In the end, I think the wall looked great for a first timer.

Now I’m off to list some new pendants on my Etsy shop. I need to pay for all of those art supplies!
