I love Musicals and today this title from a Cole Porter song popped into my head as tonight the RWS will be having ‘Another Op’nin’ for our Spring Exhibition.
It’s not so dissimilar to a musical – it is a performance, every artist puts their work up there for a mixed bag of comments or no comments – the work has taken hours and hours of blood, sweat and tears and then it happens and that’s it. All you can do is the best you can and move on – in the words of Irving Berlin – ‘Let’s go on with the show!’
Spring Exhibition from today until 26 April.
PV 6-8 today at Bankside Gallery, near Tate Modern
I live in London, I can see the top of the Shard from my window. I like making things and I mainly produce paintings which I exhibit and sell if the right person comes along!

I have just finished my dissertation Jill, its title – less is more. I think we share this notion. x
