The people who build you up!

A wonderful day today, but so busy I didn't know when I'd
paint.  Great talk with an inspiring artist friend, and a walk in
the magic day with a friend and her dog.  All happy.
Errands for business and teaching and so on.

Here's the thing (as one of my favourite bosses ever still says),
inspiration and kindness are powerful.  I've been watching
other artists on line just bloody well grab the day and
paint. So I did.

This is a study for a larger painting, and already it cheers
me up with its happy view of one of my favourite parks.
People who inspire you, love you, bounce ideas off
you -- those are the people we all need.  So thank you
to all of you -- because you do that for me every day.

Have a loving your friends day.

Lovely, lovely post, Barbara! I've been lazy - neither painting nor posting. I'm glad to see you're getting it done in spite of being busy (or perhaps because of being busy).

Hi Candy,

Thank you so much. I seem to be commited to blogging every day, but painting is taking awhile to
produce in the past month. Love to see what you do. Maybe you are on
vacation. That's allowed isn't it?
