musings | starting and finishing

last week i completed my first day at a new gallery. and today is my last day at the papery. starting and finishing have never been something i enjoyed - maybe that's why i have a never ending to do list!

i hate starting new jobs. of course there is the excitement and the honour of being chosen. but for about three weeks I feel totally helpless. you can't answer questions, or find products. you don't know how to busy yourself during downtimes or how to give yourself tasks. i'm always just wishing i could jump in at the two month mark and know everything already!

i don't love finishing either. it's always a bit sad and it usually means change. and it definitely takes me awhile to get used to change!

i guess i would rather always be in the middle of something...working on something interesting and creative and inspiring...

it's a wonder then why i've chosen the field of art. a career which will consist of constantly starting exhibitions, taking them down and changing to a new one!


  1. Good luck with the new job! I'm sure you'll do great at it :).

  2. A new gallery job? Cool. Starting something new is always a little nerve-wracking, but we have to get out of our comfort zones to really grow!


thanks for your comment, i love hearing your thoughts!
