finalizing the selection of paintings for the opening may 30th / by Philip Tarlow

4:09 PM: today mikela and i reviewed all the paintings that are possible candidates to be sent to space gallery the day after tomorrow. we brought them over to the house, where it was easier to place paintings in the same family & see how they look together. it was the first time i got a real sense of how, based upon the gradual emergence of my rocks language & symbols, that i got a real sense of how they are, in effect, families. and as such, they look & feel like they belong together. tomorrow i need to make sure they are all properly labeled on the back of the canvas. then i’ll figure out which ones can be loaded on the trailer face to face because they are the same size, etc.
