This has been one of the busiest weeks since forever ago.
Put up the fine art show at school (that was emotionally AND physically tiring), taught three classes a day (kind of, when I wasnt in the gallery) including four days of three minute gestures, finished and framed this big commission for a client at 2.30 in the morning on the day of the hand-in http://mbkstudios.blogspot.com/
(for a while I thought I was going to miss my deadline for the first time in 21 years), arranged flights to Maine, met with a contractor about external works at the studio, paid my sales taxes for the end of 2010, wrote a pr piece for the East Pilsen Business Alliance, designed and submitted a half page ad for my studio,
hurriedly built a new website to itemise all works available in the studio,
talked with Caleb, then Tom, Rich and Duncan about an exhibition in the fall for the Hollow project, developed a brief for a competition for the school library, negotiated rehearsal space in my building for a theatre group and agreed to curate an exhibition for them, AND tried to be a husband and father to the boys.
Today I started the first of three paintings of Boston architecture that I have to submit on Wednesday.
This has been an unusually busy week and I cant say that I've done everything very well.
