Tomorrow evening is the opening of my exhibition in Coffs Harbour. I am not nervous about what people will think of my work as this has always been irrelevant. My art is all to do with the process and comes from somewhere deep inside of me. I am not worried by what other people think of my work.
What does make me nervous, however, is being the centre of attention at the opening and at the artists talk the following day. I will be glad when that part is over and I can get back to painting in ernest.
Some quick paint impressions from my journal:

Thanks Candy. I felt more at ease the next day when I gave a talk and painted in the gallery. It was a lot less formal and there was an interesting discussion on forms of expression, the place of women in the arts, the sensibilities and influences on women't artistic journeys.
