Hanging the Shades of Summer Show

Today I spent the most of the day hanging the art show at Buckhorn.

Due to a power outage last night caused by a tree being uprooted during the storm and taking out a hydro pole, which caused a nine hour black out for the area; we were unable to hang some of the paintings last night.

Unless we wanted to do it by flashlight, which would have taken a lot longer and trying to hold a flashlight and put a large painting on two small hooks on the panels is an accident waiting to happen.

Not to mention that bringing in painting in the pouring rain is not a good idea either and I really didn't want to be there until well after midnight and still have to return today to finish.

My friend Heather just couldn't get herself motivated on how she would like to have her art work displayed on her panels so I hung her show for her while she cleaned the glass on my paintings and helped some of the others with hanging their art.

After lunch Heather helped me with hanging my art work, which we did in record time as Heather and I have hung many shows together and once we get started things go up fairly quickly.

We are now ready for our opening tomorrow morning.
