International Artist Day in my world

Hi wonderful artists around the world who
I am crazy about, and Alyson Stanfield who asked how
we are celebrating International Artist Day,  I am glad
I spent the day focusing on art, and talking to artists
both in Toronto, and in the U.S.  Art and travel to
other countries for shows is hugely on my mind, and
I'm planning a major piece that I showed you my
canvasses for last night.

Other than that the business of art goes on.  I am
working on several commissions and planning for more.
There is so much going on that my head is spinning.
But I come here, to meet with my fellow blogger
friends, and blog fans to settle down and realize
that I am the luckiest of all people to know you,
and to be able to dream and plan about our super
lives as an international artists. 

So get back to me,  and to Alyson Stanfield and tell
me (and Alyson) what you did today to celebrate,
and what you're planning.

Have a loving-the-whole-world-of-art day.

Gosh, I'm sorry to say that I did not know about this day.

Well, you've got a gorgeous watercolour here. I certainly know that!

Today, I got my flu shot and the nurse asked me to draw her on the medical answer sheet. I did, and she laughed! It was an art day for me belatedly.

Hi Melinda,

Thanks so much. The only reason I knew about it was because I read Alyson Stanfield's blog. I love that story about drawing the nurse. Adorable.
