Boxed up and ready

Tuesday 19 May

Here’s Pentecost Trinity, my exhibition starting next week. We drive it and hang it this coming Friday. I’ve spent the last few hours making boxes and I certainly never expected to be a box maker.  Octave was most interesting to box – one large box with spacers for all the eight paintings to snuggle in. Thanks to dear Mark, my landlord who makes huge signs, I’ve got heaps of cardboard to use. They’re tied up with random ribbons I collect/save/squirrel away. Twine breaks and string can cut into my hands, so woven ribbon is both the strongest and kindest to use. It can make a rather twee looking heap of boxed works, but there we are.
