Talking at my art club
last night thinking about what seems to be my growing
list of things to do. Up at the crack of dawn I drove to
school through an amazing landscape gradually
glowing as the sun rose. I didn't get to see
Breakfast Television and my painting of
Tobias was featured! I really hope one of my
friends taped it, because both of us were off to
work and couldn't.
My teacher friends are tired and giddy, and I
think as the term rolls towards the last weeks,
they get funnier every day.
I worked on having postcards made today.
I really like the printer doing the work, and his
co-worker. They are meticulous and very kind.
Then tonight I gave a talk at the Don Valley Art
Club on my spectacular year. Looking out into
the crowd of faces I was so touched that these
people, many who know me pretty well, would
come to listen to me speak about my experiences.
They were a gracious audience, and I thoroughly
enjoyed myself. Then it was home to supper with
Chris at the printing shop allowed me to do this
very quick little sketch while he worked and that's
all there is for tonight.
Have a thinking-about-painting day.
