A Meeting of Creative Minds

                                                      Alice B. Toklas and Gertrude Stein

This morning I was invited to the house of Patricia Van Essche of PVE Design (who is a good friend and fellow artist).  She decided to host a small gathering of local artists. The other artists in attendance were Jennifer Orkin Lewis, aka August Wren and Ellen Hopkins Fountain.  It reminded me of Gertrude Stein who hosted artists salons in her house frequently. I loved that we sat and talked about everything art related i.e. our creative process, how to advertise ourselves via social media-it was truly inspiring! I am nowhere as prolific as these 3 artists so I definitely felt privileged to be there.  It would be terrific if we could organize to have these artists' salons on a regular basis.

I am glad we took the time out to connect creatively in the midst of a flurry of holiday goings on. Great to see you and you are a great artist too!
Next time we need to sketch and paint....
