Sunday: Sights, Sounds and Some More Art Stuff

10 Nov

“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.”
― Émile Zola

I started out the day with a quick walk/jog. I only had 45 minutes before getting ready for church, so I couldn’t walk my usual hour, so I jogged a little and walked a little. I’m too old for that jogging nonsense. Next time I’m getting up earlier.

After Mass, I went to the Square for breakfast at Snug, then over to the Heard Craig Gallery for the second day of the Centennial and closing reception. I did more painting, and Sherry offered to video a better demo of my painting a wintry Christmas scene. The one I did yesterday, I was holding my iPhone in one hand and painting with the other. Not so easy.

A surprise visit from our very dear friend and fabulous artist, Laura Moore, just made our day. We miss having Laura Moore’s Gallery on the Square.

I didn’t get a chance to hear all the guest speakers upstairs or get any of the cute centennial cake, but I did have a bunch of cupcakes. I’m not even a big cupcake person, but I was hungry. Painting must make you hungry.

It was another long day, but spent with talented artists, surrounded by wonderful artwork.

The drive home was also a work of art. Another evening where God painted the sky with His amazing palette.

    Amazing for you to hold your iPhone in one hand and painting with the other.

    Just when I’d convinced myself to kiss winter goodbye forever (the weather here in Lompoc has been 60-70 all week) you go and paint that enchanting vase. How exquisite! I too lament the end of Laura Moore’s gallery. Her shows and work always captivated me. Leavin’ on a jet plane with sadness. But knowing I’ll get to see Saint Toni cheers one up!
