Just had a message on my machine saying all three of the paintings I submitted got into the airport show with Regional Artist Consortium. Way Cool!
Had a very inspiring day today being with two other artists- Kim Roberti from Marble Falls, TX and Donna Bland, who just moved to San Antonio from Round Rock, TX. Kim had invited me to come join them at Mission Espada, a beautiful mission on the south of San Antonio which I'd never seen. I decided not to take my paints, but just my camera so I could focus on our conversation and maybe gather some reference photos for future paintings. I'm so glad! We three just took off. We've got a group show in the works and a trip to San Miguel for next year. All three of us aspire to having a painting accepted into the Salon International Show which the Greenhouse Gallery hosts each year.
Tonight is the Austin Pastel Society meeting and I get to share the evening with more artist friends. Life is so good.
