What excitement! A presidential primary where we are all watching with hope and anticipation! I mailed my ballot a couple of weeks ago and will soon find out if my choice won. I think it odd that so many of us Californians vote absentee when we can easily go out and vote. I think it's because we just have so many activities in this land of sunshine that we don't want to have to choose between going to vote or going to do something fun!
I was at the art museum today to meet up with one of the curators who also runs the adult ed program there. He was a very nice man with some good ideas. We are hoping to increase the figure sessions at the museum and perhaps even offer instruction once in awhile. Of course it all comes down to money. But I offered to do what I can to get the word out and hopefully increase participation in the program.
While there I wandered into a new exhibit by California artist Millford Zornes. Wow! I fell in love with his watercolors. His use of bold stokes of color and minimal detail left me breathless gazing upon his landscapes. I came home inspired to put paint on the page of my moleskine wc sktechbook and then added the ink with my Lamy Safari fountain pen. It will take some planning but I want to play with this idea on a larger format and with big brushes!!! ah....another trip to the art store!!!
As for being Fat Tuesday.....hummm....I have lots of eating to do in order to catch up!!! I should have planned better, maybe made another platter of lemon squares just for me!
