I’m running a little late with today’s post, yesterday was action packed.
The Writer’s At Artcroft meet the first Sunday of each month. I am not a writer, but enjoy reading, and particularly enjoy hearing writers reciting their own work. Everyone (not me) read a poem that they had written during the month, and after a discussion about epilogues, they were given some time to write something that began with an epilogue. Then everyone (not me) took turns reading what they wrote. I was impressed with the quality of work they were able to come up with on the spot.
I had agreed to help the group with their website, and after the meeting, was asked to explain my ideas to the group. I am a very weak public speaker, and after a very awkward presentation, I think the group was still interested in my idea. I need to work on my public speaking.
My photography skills were not so sharp that day either…I am sorry for such a poor photo of the group…especially to Joe who is blocked out of the picture. But pictured in the photo right to left are Jude Lalley, Jennifer Gleason, Mary-Louise Dean, Mia Capodilupo, Joe Netta(behind Robert), Ed Taylor, and Jennifer Baldwin.
After the meeting, I went with Robert to load a truckload of firewood. The weather has been unusually warm, and I had a strong urge to create a plein air painting. By the time the wood was unloaded, the sky was dark gray, and some rain was falling. I decided to work on a web design project. After a few hours, I looked out the window, and the sun was back out, and I wondered what I was doing inside doing computer work? It is true what they say about Kentucky weather. If you don’t like it…wait 15 minutes!
So I stomped outside with my oil pastels and made a painting of my studio. I have had a great time there, and I wanted to capture it’s image.
After dinner, I returned to the studio, and made a painting of the studio under the full moon. It is a diptych. I think it will be interesting to frame
