One of my favorite things about being an artist is having my own little "shop" set up at an art show, having people come by to visit, look at my art and to hear how my art makes them feel happy and uplifted.
I had my booth set up yesterday at the monthly art show in San Juan Capistrano. I had lots of little girls stop by with their parents. One of my favorites little friends came by to visit again. I feel like we became friends a couple of months ago when her Mom and Dad shared the booth next to me at the show. She was sketching in her booth and we shared each other's drawings and I encouraged her to keep up her artwork and talked to her about art school and how much I loved it. When she came back to visit and to say hello yesterday, I let her and her friend sit down and look thru my sketchbook ( I never let anyone do that!)
I felt a connection with her, being fellow artists and that maybe I am her art mentor in a small way, but mostly because I saw myself at her age, a bit shy, and loving to loose myself in my drawing. I told her to visit anytime and hope she stops by again, she made my day!
If it wasnt for the art show I would be seriously depressed since the Sox lost last night after a great fight! Cant wait till you guys get back to Fenway for tomorrow's Game 3! Go Sox!!
