Day at River Art Gallery

Today was my day-a-month to work at the gallery in La Villita. A constant stream of tourists taking in the sights of San Antonio, looking to take images of Texas back to the cold states they're escaping. I just adore the four women artists I work with each month. Two watercolor painters, a woodworker/sculptor and a jewelry maker. I leave there happy to have been in their company all day. Even though the stream of tourists turned into a river toward the end of the day, the first part of the day was s...l...o....w. I was stir crazy after straightening all the paintings on the wall. I'd brought along a little sketch book and good pencils so I got each of my friends to sit for a portrait. What a treat! Simple, but detailed pencil drawings are such a luxury for me. I loved it. They each took theirs home and I was more content. Ahhhh.

This weekend I'll find out the outcome of the two exhibitions I have paintings in. In the meantime, I'm working on the oil commissions. Or at least I will be. I've been just putting things back in some kind of order since returning from Phoenix. Calls back home to Mom and Dad reassure me that things are good and getting better there. Ahhhh.

I haven't checked in on your blog in some time so this is the first I had read of your mom's heart attack. My thoughts and prayers and with you and your family. What good news that she is "good and getting better!" Best wishes on the exhibitions results as well!
