Setting up the Among Friends Show

Today was an extremely busy day for me.

First thing in the morning I had to take Christine to Toronto, Ontario to see a specialist at Toronto General Hospital.

Afterwards on the way home I had to drop her off at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (formerly known as Mosport International Raceway).

From there I headed home to get changed and load up my paintings to take up to St. Matthews Church in Buckhorn, Ontario for the 26th Annual Among Friends Art Show.

It was a good thing that last night I had everything already set out in the kitchen which made that an easy chore and saved a fair a lot of time.

On the way there I picked up my friend Heather who had the key for the church and would help me with setting up and hanging my show.

Fortunately, yesterday I had already set up my drafting board in its usual spot at the back of the building beside JoAnne's pottery.

So I was ready to paint during the weekend.

It didn't take very long for us to get everything up and hung on the grids, but then Heather and I have hung many shows together over the last 25 years.

The last thing to do was to clean off any marks that accidentally got on the glass and double check the list making sure that everything was there with the correct labels.

By then it was supper time and we went next door to the Cody Inn to have an enjoyable meal of Chinese food before heading home for some much deserved rest and relaxation.

The hours for our show are:
17 May 13 - 9:00am - 5:00 pm
18 May 13 - 12:30pm - 5:00pm
19 May 13 - 10:00am - 5:00pm

I look forward to seeing some of you at the show this weekend.
