What a fun day. It has been a misty, rainy, and a full out heavy
showers day. My favorite. I must have been born on a boat,
because I am always happy around water, and usually glad
when it rains.
I met with some friends for coffee to start the day, came
home and worked on a watercolour for most of the afternoon.
I spoke to a good friend in Ireland, and listened to
the exciting news about her life and art. Afterwards the
watercolour seemed to sing off the brush.
Then tonight I headed out in a downpour for my art group,
and had a marvellous time. The model was everything I
love, quiet and serious about posing. I decided to put her
in an art gallery. And enjoyed painting her and the work
behind her as quickly as possible. The paintings are imagined
works by friends.
This is what a good model does -- inspires the artists to think
their own thoughts and go off into their imaginations.
All in all a thoroughly enjoyable, and art packed day.
Have a day filled-with-art-and joy.
