Ditch Fish Project: Venue Change

October 10, 2012

I had a sneaky feeling my request would be misinterpreted. Maybe it’s for the best.

Here are the images for the NEW location, still in downtown Sweet Home. Address is 933 Main Street. I had really hoped for a longer expanse of window but I’ll just have to work with what I’ve got.

To be truthful, I’m currently having enthusiasm problems. Not terribly surprising with everything else happening around my life. Fortunately, my back problem seems to have healed after spending almost a full 7 days in a reclined position.  It’s been almost 2 weeks and I can walk a 5K daily, sit fairly comfortably for longer periods and manage pain with ibuprofen when needed.

Here are a couple more shots.

I’m not certain if I can really incorporate the upper windows (to the left of the front door)  into the project or if the windows to the right can be viewed well enough. Hopefully I’ll be able to visit the building in person (inside & out) soon. I might just stick with the large corner “fish bowl” window next to the front door.  The fish body length will have to be adjusted to fit the space. Backdrop will need to be sorted out to deal with the gutted empty space behind. I wonder if there might be some electricity? Lighting the project would be nice.

Time to start cracking down on sketching out possible ideas and assembling wire squares.

    Fortunately, if you’re walking 5k a day, your back’s on the right track. But I think you should supplement your drug regimen with beer.

      Can’t do beer due to the gluten. Wine, gin & tonics, plus a margarita or two have helped!
      The dog really wants me to start jogging again. Maybe in a few days…

        What! No more beer?? If it hasn’t been done already, you need to invent gluten free beer $$$.

        There ARE gluten free beers out there but nothing quite hits the spot… All I want is a substitute for my IPA craving. Local ciders are filling in for the moment.

    Hi Gale..my name is Sarah and I own this building, I know it may not be what you were expecting to showcase your work, but hopefully it will work for you. It does have electricity and all windows are available to use. We are planning on fixing up the front of the building to look a little more pleasing to the eye as well. I am available almost daily to let you in to view and measure the space. Looking forward to meeting you and seeing your work.
