This time of year the tropical weather outlook has been added to our local weather. The South Atlantic has been quiet so far, but weather things are beginning to heat up, and we've been hearing about hurricanes and tropical storms all week.
None seem to be threatening us at the moment, but today's daily painting is what came off my brushes despite my plans for something else. Guess I've seen enough weather forecasts that just the mention of a tropical wave makes me recall the sky, wind and water during a storm.
Tonight will be the Art League of Marco Island's reception for the Color Vibrations exhibition. Should be an interesting exhibition, and the Marco Island Chamber of Commerce After Five will be held as well. It should be a great time to see both good art and good friends.
You're invited, so come along, and if you're one of the Art League's artist members, you can pick up your prepared canvas to begin working on your piece of the painting for the Art League's 40th birthday, coming up in Novmeber. I'll do a longer post on this project later.
Island's Artist Tabletalk luncheon, a monthly artists roundtable sponsored by the Marco Island Foundation for the Arts will be held tomorrow. It's amazing how refreshing and inspiring it is to talk and share with other artists. Coming together to talk about our work and to support and encourage each other makes me really appreciative of the arts community on Marco.
