my least favorite thing

...is to have to make something for an exhibit when I am not in the mood. What is YOUR least favorite (art-or studio-or teaching-or exhibit-related) thing?

Cleaning up my studio so that I can get creative again. I am a creative mess, but can't zstart a new project in chaos.

so far ( and I have only done a few ) it has been the process of "showing"....whether it is juried or not there is such a process of both the piece ( hanging, transporting ) and paperwork ...as well as just keeping track of dates etc...if (IF) I choose to make art to share I will have to get better at this part...thanks for asking this question cause I think I have been avoiding thinking about this issue !!! just call me scarlettginger...hum what a color

Getting the professional photos taken. I've delayed in making that phonecall long enough that I think I've missed the PIQF deadline... and will have to see if there is an appropriate show between now and Road to California besides PIQF...

Well, it's unanimous. We need to just do the creative work and hire servants to do the sleeves, bindings, labels, studio cleanup, paperwork, filing, photo shoot scheduling, transporting, and all other boring tasks. Ugh - I forgot about cutting hanging sticks for the work.

Of course! We are artists and prima donnas: we need an audience, stage crew, and an entourage. So how do we go about it?

I think mine's getting started when I'm not sure what I want to do... I feel I want to do something but what to start with when my head's full of ideas. Once I get down to it, it's okay, but it's amazing how many things I can find to do to keep me away from starting!
