Twilight Zone

Sorry, no picture this time. My computer is down for the last several weeks with a dead hard drive, so I am unable to carry on with several of my computer based activities. I did my watercolor portrait painting workshop with six students and an excellent model. Two of my paintings were accepted to the Farms & Barns show in Dixon, Illinois. I drove them there last week. One oil and one watercolor done plein air for a month long show. The day I drove to Dixon, I also drove to Griffith, Indiana to see my old instructor from art school who was in an art in the park exhibit. Not having seen him for about 35 years -- hey, we both looked remarkably unchanged. We sat and talked for almost two hours. I can honestly say that I never had a bad day in his class. I maybe got frustrated with myself from time to time, but in an atmosphere of real learning experiences I was at my best. Luckily I have my son's computer to add a page here, but for now I'm in the computer twilight zone.
