Embarassment of Riches

Our dining room these days is serving as a repository for work that will be included in my upcoming solo show at the University of Connecticut Health Center, Twigs and Tides.

Here's a corner of the dining room. You can see a corner of the buffet, which is engulfed by work mounted on foamcore board.  On the buffet itself are a clipboard, a tape measure, and a pencil.  I need those because part of my task for today is to measure and inventory my work and set prices.  Not all of them will be for sale but most will, and part of my obligation to UConn Health Center is to provide a price list.

Thus, all my work for the show--21 pieces--is collected in the dining room, awaiting measurement and valuation.

The business end of things is the least enjoyable part of taking my art seriously.  Still, seeing it all gathered together for the show does impart a sense of satisfaction.


  1. Wow Diane! You have been busy. I am looking forward to the show!

  2. The show will be awsome! It's fun to see the work together - it really looks like a cohesive body of work! I'm going to try to get to the opening!
