The other day I had some art friends over for lunch and painting. I love this group of ladies. It had been a tough week for me at work, and I was looking forward to some whimsical painting. We had gotten together just a few weeks earlier to paint eggs, Ukrainian style. It had been a great afternoon. I was looking forward to a similar lighthearted, laughter-filled experience.
However, my friends had a different agenda. They came ready to spark political debates, weigh-in on serious artistic critiques of each others’ work, and express their general dissatisfaction with the world as it is today. Me, I really just felt like painting purple robins and other humorous views of life. Needless to say, it wasn’t a great afternoon for me. By the time they left, I was in sour spirits and felt gypped out of a fun-filled afternoon.
Art is art, and by it’s definition it is many things to many people. So, in that spirit I took my sour feelings and turned them into a humorous account of the afternoon. I love art and all its many facets. AND, I still love my art friends, too.
Enjoy your day, whatever it brings you!
