Two compositions in my Solo Show: Nature Abstracted sold at the reception within the first half an hour. I was so pleased by getting the youtube videos online; as well as being exhausted from promoting the show this great news slipped my mind 🙂

An outside view of Ben Navaee Gallery where my Solo Show: Nature Abstracted opened today. The reception was held from 3-4:30 pm and as you can see following the links on youtube there was a good response from the public. The Abstracted Landscapes were a hit!

Installation is complete! It is looking really good, statement, labels, prints, range of sizes of paintings; all hung ready to show for tomorrow’s reception at 3pm. I’m really pleased, even a little thrilled that this Solo Show is happening 🙂

My Solo Show will be installed tomorrow. One day left to tie up the lose ends of edges and second coats on a couple of paintings; as well as a few hooks and wires and I’m set. I refuse to panic, by telling myself ‘it will get done’. Thank goodness the details of the statement, labels and prints are completed! 🙂

I had to take a break from my painting madness, so I saw the film Dangerous Method based on work by Jung and Freud. It was quite a good show 🙂

Mentally I’m thinking of myself as a creatively nuanced machine that is mass producing ‘my masterpieces’ for the upcoming Solo Show at Ben Navaee’s Gallery. Even pausing for tea or food seems to be too much 🙂

For Nature Abstracted, her first Solo Exibition, Toronto artist Carolyn Scanlan uses a new approach to her
creative practice, by articulating her concept through photography, working with the computer, resulting in a series of layered landscapes that explore the different ways the mind conveys forms into reality.
