In a few minutes an older lady came up to the table and introduced herself as the photographer's mom. She asked if she minded if she talked with us. Now this is the point where some artists might be frustrated. Especially if they are making progress on their painting. But I am glad we didn't let our paintings become more important than the interaction with our visitors. We enjoyed a lovely conversation and the photographer, Aggie, took our photos at our easel.
I know that Jayne and I will remember the day not for the paintings we did but for the people we met. When I look at the painting that I did work on I will remember the sights and sounds of the day and I will remember talking to Aggie and her mom and watching her dog Smudge swim in the river. This will color any paintings I do in the studio of this place. And that is a good thing!
