It occurred to me a few minutes ago as I was surfing Pintrest for “job chart for adults at a convention” that I may have snapped.


After more than two years of planning, “my” convention is just 11 days away.


To recap, more than two years ago I volunteers to be a co-chair of the Watercolor Society of Oregon Fall Convention. At the time I lived in Oregon City and I felt that a convention there would be a neat thing. Once I found an equally foolish person to take care of the “social/food” side of the convention, we were off.


Frankly, I think it’s going to be a great event.

  • We’ve lined up great location and teachers.
  • Clackamas Community College is allowing us to hang the show in their Pauling Gallery.
  • The list of classes is awesome (if I do say so myself.)
  • The juror is internationally known and his workshop filled up within a few weeks of “opening.”
  • I’ve eaten the food of the caterer and I thought it was great.
  • People have volunteered readily.
  • We met our deadlines for publishing.
  • The budget is in the black.

And you are ALL invited to the Artists Reception Saturday, October 8 from 4-6pm at the Pauling Gallery at CCC!

Now, if I can just stay calm…


Here’s the thing. This is the kind of event that brings out my dictator complex.


Now, it is my observation that people don’t like to be bossed around.


Which leads me to my quest to find a “job chart for adults at a convention” on Pintrest.


Can I count on you all for an intervention if it becomes necessary?
