Set up a mock show of my work in the critique space. This was for my final advanced class critique. It went really well.
My mother came for a visit last Sunday and hung out in the studio for a while. She walked around and looked at my work. She "found herself getting lost in the drawings". I think, just with that comment, that I succeeded in making work related to my thesis. Wipe the sweat off my forehead.
Now, I just have to finalize and hang for the show.
