In spite of an unfortunate cold I picked up, I really enjoyed my Saturday morning spent painting at Good Earth Café. I met many new people that were so kind and encouraging and also chatted with friends. One young gentlemen (an interesting seven year old) pulled up a chair next to me and we had the most educational conversation. He thought that the next painting I worked on should be a dragon...he loves dragons. Apparently they are not easy to spot and live in pine trees. What a pleasant fellow and such wonderful stories. Can't wait until he's old enough to join the Jr Artist Program at the library.
I was able to complete one piece that I had begun previously and to begin another which I look forward to working on some more. It was really a lovely morning. I decided to title the new piece 'Sky Dance', my ode to Van Gogh's 'Starry Night'. Like Van Gogh I painted it in the light of day, with a memory of the stars dancing in the night sky, though unlike him, I painted it in a beautiful location, while being served delicious vanilla bean tea by the fabulous young ladies at the café and listening to music I love. All-in-all a perfect way to spend a day.
