Anxious to get it done, I stuck some scraps out of the hole where the hose had been and turned it in. (I now wish I’d braided the scraps with wire so they could stick out in a spraying shape.) I’ve had a couple people say my piece reminds them of parachuting or a hot air balloon, which is an idea I’d love my piece to conjure up. I’ll post pictures after the show opens, I don’t want to give anything away just yet!
The opening is on Saturday night which I am both excited and bummed out about. The reception will be fun (I think I might make mini cupcakes) but it falls on the same night of (Marcus’s Roanoke band) Red Clay River’s last show. There are creative differences I think (both a seemingly cop out answer and a true one in their case), and they just never really recovered from the theft of their instruments last year. I’m gonna try to go to the opening for an hour and then drive up to Roanoke to catch RCR.
