“It’s your first gallery show!” They told me as I walked into the lunchroom.
I gave my notice at my job last week and have been wrapping up my duties before I head into a long-planned creative sabbatical and some time off. The team was throwing me a little farewell party, and as a special treat along with pizza and sweets had hung up a couple dozen print-offs from my artsy instagram profile. The effect was a wall of my sketches and paintings and, yeah, kinda a little gallery show as we all drooled over the steaming boxes on the nearby table.
How clever, and really more touching than I probably let on in the moment.
It also made for an interesting post-party afternoon as a dozen people picked their favs from the wall and lined up at my desk to have it signed.
