ART FRIENDS GATHER
I drive up to my art teacher's house yesterday for a gathering of her students
in the painting world and I see this. I wonder which class member she is.
I look a little closer and it's a statue. I became so intrigued, carefully taking in what magic Susan had created standing right in her yard!
It became a really special day for me as I haven't seen my art buddies for such a long time. Each bringing our lunch and sharing a bit of wisdom on the art scene.
Look what Terrie created! Isn't it beautiful to place on a chair or stool?
Barbara showed a piece of her work. In the left hand corner is a cut up painting she no longer wanted. The background is magazine pieces torn up and scattered around the painted owl. It is so creative!
Susan, shared the book she has written about women in the catching Lobster world. She's added some knowledge about that skill and tells of their jobs. Can't wait til it gets published. (Do you see that fake artist working away in the background?)
My watercolor seems so simple compared to their work being shared.
This is just a practice painting.
As we sit on Susan's porch that big willow tree adds much thought as do the boats in the Belfast Harbor. The tree color along the water is changing a bit and will certainly be lovely, adding a little character in the future. It was one fabulous get-together. I hope we don't wait long to gather again, for I came home motivated to try new things in the art world.

Wasn't that just best day, Barbara. It was so good to catch up with all of you. I'm glad we got to sit out on the porch and take everything in. But the best part was seeing everybody and what they were doing.

What a creative bunch of friends, Barb. I know you add an additional spark of creativity.

Oh, Tipping, you can't imagine how excited I was to see those gals and what creative things they were working on. I was blown away when I saw the variety of things each was working on. The day captured much happiness!

Oh, looks like you had a wonderful time. If only I could have cloned myself in order to be in 2 places at once!

We missed you, Suzanne! Had so much fun learning about ART and seeing my buddies. You will make it next time.

Oh, I miss those art classes so much. I paint every day now but I still think of those classes often. Thank you for the update on what is happening. Enjoy the autumn and share your art. It’s nice to know that Susan has published a book too. I talk about that series often.

Sheila, talking about art in autumn is a special treat, especially with your art teacher present. We missed all that had other plans and could not make it. We'll meet and share again sometime when more can attend. Glad you are painting. Thanks for your thoughts.
