I've never walked a real high wire, but I think these concerts with orchestras must come pretty close in terms of craziness.
Anyway, all went well in the end and the screen and projection set up by conductor Spencer Down, worked fine (although I think I may paint on white for this concert, instead of on black, as I did in Hatfield. I have a feeling the screen we are using at St Anne's church will work better with the higher contrast I'd get on white...).
And so, a day off with a stomach bug (which is why I felt ill... I was!), a new easel, a few more practises... and tomorrow is the day. The church is really beautiful and atmospheric with a lovely acoustic. I think it's going to be a terrific evening. Yes, I am nervous, but I am certainly prepared!
The paintings will be auctioned to raise funds for the Docklands Sinfonia's outreach programme, which aims to bring fantstic musicians into East End schools, so I hope they turn out well.
Wish me luck... and bring on the sugar mice!
