I Love my Art Group!

I've been working late on Tuesday nights for the past
14 weeks.  No chance to go to my Tuesday night
art group, and I missed them and our time together
so much.

A friend of mine just joined, and I urged her to
come with me tonight and draw.  She did a super
drawing, which I forgot to photograph.  It was a
special night and the place was packed.  We had
a super opera singer as a model!

So fun -- here is my quick 1 hour painting of Ricardo,
I may touch it up a bit tomorrow, but I just
loved painting him with all of my great artist
friends.  Thank you Frank Pasian for organizing
this great event at the DVAC.

Have a-loving-being-with-art-friends day.

yay for your art group! you are very lucky to be part of such a nice group Barbara. Often we work in isolation so much that it's totally a holiday to paint in an art group for a change. Nice painting of Ricardo. did he sing for you?

Hi Sally,

It was so nice. There was a wild excitement in the air that night. And
everyone was doing wonderful work. It is so good to work around other artists -- super friends -- and so much talent.

No he didn't sing, and I wish he did!

I'm so happy you went to your art group.

Your work is luscious and full of colour!

As one who has been visiting here for more than five years, I can say without hesitation that your work is wonderful.

Keep going!

Warm hugs from the desert...

Hi Melinda,

Thank you so much. I can certainly say the same back to you. I love your work -- your colour, abstraction, landscapes, portraits. I love your totally unique perspective. You are most definitely an art star in my universe! ;-)
