I'm assisting in a Coastal Maine Art Workshop all week long.
Our teacher, Tony Van Hasselt does a daily demo,
then he goes around to people while they are painting,
and then he does a critique at the end of each day.
Because I run around tending to details some of the time,
I don't get the painting time the others do.
But at least on the first day I made 2 quick sketches.
My town attracts artists & classes of this sort.
The very gracious students this time are from:
Florida, Colorado, Minnesota, Maine,
New Jersey, New York, Virginia,
Massachusetts, & South Carolina!
I must say it is more than luck.
I worked hard to move here.
I chose this town carefully.
It was hard to move.
Hard to leave a longtime hometown
that I dearly loved.
But, it's been so worth it and
it's fun to share it
with artistic visitors from far away.
