"Elation", 8 x 10, Pastel on Pastelbord
Last night I attended a Flash Mob Artist event in Oakhurst, California about 25 miles from where I live. This was the first Flash Mob event in Oakhurst put on by a few of my dear artist friends Joyce Wycoff, Vivian Helena Amond-capone, Julie Mitchell and Kathleen Mattox who, I thought, did a fantastic job. It felt so good to be among other artists and town folk who came out to have fun, create, get caught up with people, meet new people and simply enjoy the evening and.... even a few sales were made at Timberline Gallery to boot. As a solitary studio artist, I find I get into my own head too much too often. When this happens, my creativity gets stifled. Last nights outing was just what the art doctor ordered. Oh, about the painting. I started it last night at the event. I finished it this morning. How's that for getting my juices flowing again?
