Exhibition over.

OK. That’s ended then.
It was a bit odd. For the first few weeks things went well, or so I thought, but there was always something of an odd taste to the thing. Anywoo’s, I decided to remove all on Sunday morning. Oh yeah, the wedding was cancelled so when I arrived on last Thursday – I had the space to Friday – was told there was no rush to take them down. That’s why Sunday.
But I think I’ve gotten any good that was in it. And I’m glad they are out.

    In many ways I’m sure it’s a relief it’s over. Congratulations on a job well done.

      Thank you. It so is.
      I’ve been asked to offer suggestions for next years 1916 Rising commemoration. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter_Rising. Not fully sure what they have in mind. And I’m not fully sure how I got on the radar for the county admin to invite me either.

        It sounds like an honor to me. If you have any ideas, jump in and offer them! The worst they can do is disregard them.

    Well, another one done and under your belt. The wedding was canceled?!?! Well that was last minute…someone got cold feet? 🙂
    I agree, that is an honor. 100 years, that’s a big anniversary. Is it something Ireland remembers each year in the form of a holiday or is it just for the century mark?

    • Vincent says:

      Yep, poof, no wedding no relationship, kaput.

      Yeah the 100 years is a very big thing. But no, no holiday or anything much of anything to mark it Nationally. The problem is all the factions and political parties see it as part of their genesis, or almost all. There’s more of course, but because of the way it’s delivered in schools it’s somewhat charged.

    I priced out the frames and NPVed them. I could’ve bought ready made for one tenth of the cost. I’ll really have to watch that artistic conceit wanting a certain look.
    I wanted the look of window frames using low grade wood. Not teak of mahogany like you see surrounding a picture usually. People who leave don’t come from houses with teak windows. That was the idea anyway.

    • Kimberly says:

      Oh no. I would have thought it would have a been a bit less to make your own, but the time you put in might have far exceeded the ready-made costs. If you have the time, the artist in you might be more fulfilled by making them yourself. But if you don’t have the time, or it doesn’t matter to your particular presentation then the pre-made ones are so much easier, especially if you make your photo size based on the frames and can buy them off-the-rack so to speak. Framing off sizes or custom framing is an arm and a leg. You’ll use these frames (that you made) again though, right?
      How do they address the history/after effects of the Rising in schools there? Is it not seen as an early start on the road to independence? I just saw that Liam Neeson is starring in a documentary about it, produced by Notre Dame’s Irish Studies Institute.

      • Vincent says:

        I thought so too. But once you add in the cost of everything, even the small stuff like staples. It adds up. They’ve been on display for 6 weeks between both places. Which isn’t too bad. 🙂

        When all political parties, sections and factions call it theirs you have the conditions designed for historical lies and bullshit. I write more later.

    Nothing like impending nuptials to really put pressure on a relationship. I never want to go through getting married again. The day of the wedding was great but the preceding months not so much and we had a very very very low key wedding compared to most.
