  1. It won’t be long now! I’m very excited for you!! I expect that your “figures of speech” exhibit will be a bit hit!! (What do artists say for good luck without jinxing? Break a paintbrush?)

    1. Awww thank you!!! I really appreciate it!!! I’m not aware of any particular phrase for luck for fine artists. There’s “break a leg” for theater folks. Not anything I know of for painters. 🤷‍♀️ Is there a good luck phrase that doesn’t jinx for writers??

        1. Maybe the visual artists and the writers are more aware that their creative projects are lifelong? If one thinks of individual projects as just one effort among thousands perhaps one worries less about the success of one particular project and thus doesn’t fear jinxing success? Perhaps because theater people rely so heavily on the success of one project as the means to get other projects that they have phrases for luck? Whereas artists and writers don’t have to rely on past success in order to get other projects?? Interesting questions to ponder…

            1. Good point! And when we painters and writers make mistakes we’re usually alone; we can mutter, slap our forehead and then fix the mistake and no one else needs to know about it. Theater people and dancers are performing in the plain view of everyone… no wonder they need good luck phrases!!

    1. Thank you SO MUCH for your kind comment!! I appreciate it!!! I did have a good opening and have been getting some good rest!! Mostly I’ve been reading books!!! 😁
