I spent part of yesterday with another artist, someone who ask if she could come over and "watch me paint" She wants to transition from water color, which she's done for years. We had a great time and shared some good art talk, and I've made a new friend.
Sometimes nature gives us the most incredible gifts of beauty. They all have to do with the effects of light in our environment. Such moments are fleeting, and if you are not alert and open to them you can miss them completely. As an artist, if I can get one of these moments down in a way that satisfies me, I've had a good day.
