As a labor of love, my dear husband has cheerfully framed and hung 77 of my 2020 and 2021 paintings for my show, which opens tomorrow. To appreciate what that entails, you should really watch this short video of him (sped up) framing just one, and then mentally multiply that by 77.
The miracle is not so much that he is so good at it (way better than me!), but that he’s so KIND about it. It makes me feel so blessed. I wanted to blog about this today, not only to thank him, but to raise him up as an example of how to be. This attitude of joyous support and service is so very appreciated.
Blog reader Deborah, who is hosting this show in her Meetinghouse, allowed us to use a (temporarily empty) back room to do the framing in, so this project did not have to take over every surface in our small house. We were very grateful for this, and I am so glad too for the divine inspiration that prompted me so clearly (and out of the blue!) to ask to use that spare room. It was God’s brilliant idea and not mine, but I’m thrilled I listened! It was fine with Deborah for us to use it and huge for us, allowing our home and work life to continue to flow naturally throughout the process.
I also want to give a shout out to blog reader Loree, who kept us fed during this marathon, by dropping off vegetable lasagna and salmon burgers on our doorstep. I am surrounded by lovingkindness. It truly takes a village.
If you can come to the opening reception tomorrow, or get by the show any Sunday afternoon in November, I placed the invite again below.
