If you ever get the chance to show in International shows,
I hope you do it. Of course there is so much to learn -- how
to navigate, what to send, how to manage shipping, where
to stay. And the most wonderful part of the whole experience
is the friendships you make that last.
This is a really rough, quick sketch of one of those friends
for me -- Miranda Brouwers -- an amazing artist, and
fabulous friend. We met in Florence Italy at the 2015
Florence Biennale, and formed what we called The Happy
People group, to cheer other artists on through the 10 days
We showed together again at the Louvre in 2016. And have
kept in constant touch ever since. Miranda is currently
devoting her work to beautiful cards, T-shirts, invitations,
and art that helps people celebrate the important moments
in their lives. I will do a more refined drawing another time.
Meanwhile have fun Miranda.
Have a loving your life day.
