Visiting with art friends.... Saturday

I had a great afternoon visiting at Art in the Heart (at Art on the Boulevard).  The 'Paparrazzi' caught us just as Kevin Weaver stopped by and said the most hilarious thing to us. I bet you wonder what it was! Well, I'd tell you, but then I'd have to kill ya. (We laughed until our sides hurt)!

....And later (because, unfortunately,  I wasn't able to attend last night's reception) I swung by to see the beautiful Blues show at the Lane Gallery. (I have 5 pieces in the show). What a great day! (Slideshow below and direct link to photos HERE).
I even found time to fit in a sketch for my self imposed Sargent project. Man, I know I've said it before, but they really had some crazy hats back in Sargent's day.

Did you have a good day today too? Hoping yes!

It does look like a hilarious joke. The photo is hilarious too and can make a dizzy broad dizzier. Love your Sargent nice big black and white forms, no pen lines. The last oil of your is charming. The hazy sun in sky was well done. A beauty.

Now if that doesn't look like the most fabulous day, I do not know what does! As always, I do so love those Sargent sketches too.

Am with David on this...I wanna know too and you can kill me afterwards, thats if you can catch me!
Love your Sargent drawing. Actually, this one looks as if it came pretty easy for you. Are you catching on to his method?
I really enjoyed seeing the show. Thanks.
