That Was Close!

I was at the studio late yesterday afternoon doing some last minute tasks in preparation for the Georgian Bay show which goes up on Monday. I am very excited about it and hope my work holds up next to Bridget and Jackie's. I can't help but feel insecure and nervous, but onward I go.

At any rate, it so happened that Bridget was at the studio doing the same, last minute tasks. In fact, she was even working on a painting for the show! Her husband was there helping her with some wiring and framing and he got looking at my work. He happens to be a geologist and brought to my attention that the original title of this painting was inaccurate. Yikes! It turns out I got my holidays from last year mixed up. Originally I named this painting "Pre-Cambrian Beach", but the rocks in this area are from the Palaeozoic era. Whew, that was close! The rocks from my canoe trip are the ones that are Pre-Cambrian. I got schooled today! (And I am grateful).

I was happy to get schooled. I would rather be right than wrong! Thanks Barbara.
