a good day...
I went to Albuquerque Museum today to attend the Plein Air Painters of NM Annual Business Meeting, which included an artists' materials swap, a nice luncheon, elections, and a painting demonstration by artist Robert Kuester. It was fun! I sold an easel and some paints and bought these two art books. The business meeting was nice because we only do that once a year and catch up on everything.
We also got a great update on our new, much more interactive website that is really going to streamline everything plus give members much more scope to add input.
The lunch was nice; homemade potato chips with dip, salad with "real" greens (I always judge a place by their salad), three types of sandwiches, and little mini cupcakes for dessert. And we have 191 members! That is just awesome, especially considering that we are only three years old. I met some people I had only talked to online before and saw some old friends and met some new ones. These meetings always leave me so inspired and energized -just knowing that there are like-minded people out there who give their heart and soul to make art and work to encourage others with this great plein air group. Let's go paint!
Tomorrow...it's all about antiques!
