This weekend was wonderful. One of those times where I felt I was very much in alignment with the vision of my life as an artist. Among other things in the last three days, I spent Saturday painting with the Outdoor Painters of Minnesota. We painted at Noremburg Gardens on Lake Minnetonka. Even though I am a member I really haven't gone to the paint outs too much. It was great, connecting with and getting to know some new artists, knocking out two paintings that I feel pretty good about, chatting with passersby and even a little show and tell in the parking lot with a couple who happened to ask about the group. Weather wise we couldn't have had a better day and as I painted all day overlooking the lake I couldn't help but feel grateful for this joyous perfection. To absolutely know you are doing the thing that you are meant to be doing. I accomplished a lot this weekend, finished three paintings, started a commission, sold three more to a collector who just bought two a couple weeks ago, got those ready for shipping, designed, printed and delivered some last minute promotional cards for a shop that just recently started showing my paintings and found them displayed prominently where everyone is sure to see them. As james Brown would say..."I feel good...." you know what I mean?
