I never feel prepared no matter how many lists I make and no matter how many new paintings I have ready. I will always feel anxious a week before a show.
Am I bringing enough work?
Do I have everything I need?
Can I get one more painting done?
Will I forget something vital (I'm known to do this)?
Will my work be well received?
Did I varnish/wire everything?
Am I bringing a variety of my work?
What in the hell am I going to wear?
The list goes on. It's a crazy place within my brain! Ha ha
I guess a little anxiety is normal and keeps me on my toes.
