Back home just a week (almost) and still playing catch up. Which of course is a complete myth–whoever coined that phrase was more than slightly delusional…:) Still savoring California complete with a great workshop, hanging with my artist bud Leslie Saeta, wonderful cuisine, flowers in full, robust bloom, and sweetest of all–a few precious days with my girl, Desiree. Living 2500 miles away from someone you love so much it hurts isn’t always easy. Mothers (and Dads) know this stuff! A few days in Hawaii with my adventuresome, inspiring, friend Ginger put me, as it always does, in awe of the amazing beauty of the world in which we live.
Guess who’s coming to dinner? Okay, not dinner but radio. The Artists Helping Artists radio show specifically. Kevin Macpherson!!! It’s going to be like “Inside the Actor’s Studio” with James Lipton. ‘Cept Kevin is an artist, not actor and well….I am not James Lipton, despite the amazing similarity in looks and style…Seriously, this should be an amazing, interesting, and sure to be funny hour with Kevin (those of you who him are certain to know about his razor sharp wit!). I first met Kevin in the early 90’s and later studied with him in France. His work is known world wide and his resume goes on forever. This is a must hear show for artists and art lovers alike.
I am preparing for my last two workshops this year–hard to believe! All of my workshops this year were filled and then some, and the dates for my 2011 are now up on my site just in case you wanna come hang out with me…:))
I saw the movie Secretariat this week and it’s a definite must see, feel good, inspiring, movie. Can you tell I liked it..:))?? Do something nice for yourself — go take in a matinee. You will be happy you did..:) And I am sure you deserve it. And be sure and get the popcorn and the raisinettes. If you’re gonna indulge, you must go all the way…..least that’s what Eddie says. Sometimes I actually do listen to what he says, especially when it comes to these kinds of things. Eddie is kind of the “poster-cat” for self-indulgence. Go Eddie–go you!
Now–I am back to the studio to paint–self-indulgence at it’s best..:))!
