But here's where it all started two and a half hours earlier, when I arrived after a one-hour drive from Canberra:
I'd dropped my 'work*' off last Friday and knew at the time that I'd need to make another trip to put it all together before the opening.
Lovely Goulburn Regional Art Gallery had my plinth and perspex case in place, a table ready for me to work on, and...
(That was a bit special and unexpected. I now want to be in every exhibition they mount.)
At 3 pm I was a bit worried.
But soon was on a roll, recreating a version of something I'd made two years ago.
Here are some progress shots (because, even as a blogger on a deadline, you need to stop and take photographs, don't you?)
Tucked in my corner, things started to come together,
while the gallery staff finished other parts of the exhibition in the background.
And then, just on closing time, I was done.
(And the lovely staff stayed five minutes late to help me load the pieces into my display case.)
