The best part is that I am going to meet the painting’s owner at rockquest. Where we are going to climb fake rocks indoors!!! This is one of my favorite things to do. Unfortunatly, most of my friends aren’t interested in climbing, or it’s too far away, or they are too far away…and you can’t climb without a partner. Can’t wait!
I have added a new section to my blog. It is a gallery of my artwork. I am testing some new technology to feature my artwork online. I plan to continue adding work to the gallery, so pay it a visit every now and then. Here’s a direct link to the gallery
I am happy with the results, but let me know what you think…does it work for you?
Between school and personal stuff, I haven’t painted for a little over a week. As soon as i smelled the turpentine, and started putting paint on the canvas, I was overcome with joy. I feel awkward in most situations. It’s only while painting I feel in my element. Why do I let so much time pass?
It’s kind of like running. I am good at finding excuses not to do it, but once I get started, I wonder why I waited so long.
The race results are not officially in, but me, mom, sister, and brother-in-law all finished. It was perfect race weather. Richmond offers great views on their course.
Mom is a wonderwoman! Around mile 10, she started passing people at a constant rate. She kept it up for about 8 miles. As she passed a number of younger, talented looking athletes, I thought to myself,
“That’s my mom!”
At the beginning of the marathon, she swore “This is my last one…” laying in bed at the hotel after the race, she looks at me and says, “ok, maybe one more”.
Sunday, I met my friend Susan for some plein air painting in the countryside. It was a little cool and windy, but the colors were changing.
