This is the last week of preparation for an exhibit.  I will hang a group of the koi paintings at Parkside Restaurant in Baltimore, Maryland this weekend.  The exhibit will open April 6th.  I’m not quite sure what to expect.  I will see this group of paintings in an ensemble for the first time once they are brought together on the wall.  It’s a strange fact that often the artist doesn’t know his or her own work particularly well.  You put things aside.  Canvases go face to the wall.  Some pictures are around all the time, but reorganizing canvases causes you to see them in new relationships. 

This will mark the most koi I’ve ever gathered togethered in one place.  I hope these slippery fellows are ready!
