First night back at my art group after two years

Art Group Sketch 
16 x 20 inches
Acrylic on canvas

Tonight I went to my art group for one hour.  Steven
dropped me off and picked me up.  I was worried that
people would be unmasked, and when I went in I did
say that we were supposed to be masked to the only
fellow who wasn't, and he put a mask on at the first

We had two breaks, so I guess this painting sketch was done in 40 
minutes, and although it's a long way from done, I like
what I learned from doing it. It was good to watch 
artists at work again -- doing some awesome painting
and drawing, and the model said he liked my colours
because his family were from Ukraine, and these
are the colours. I was glad the colours made him
happy. I suppose that was intuitive.

Have an enjoying your life day.

Thank you so much Evelyn,

It was great. I am way too tense, but it was wonderful to see
other people's work.

What a happy coincidence about the colors! And how nice to be painting with a group again. I am hoping the little plein air group I belong to will start up again soon.

Hi Jennifer Rose,

Yes! Yay!

Hi Laura,

I was super worried because COVID is still everywhere here, and
it was kind of people to put/keep their masks on, and keep on drawing.
Amazing work. It was so wonderful to see people making art.
