Accepted for Somnambulist at 4Art Inc.

I was informed that two of my 5 piece I submitted to Somnambulist were accepted..They are my Flash Back Series.#X, and XI both larger ones.   I'm happy about that they will be going to the Zhou Brother Art Center  it's where 4ArtInc is located. I believe it will be on the 2nd floor which is a great space to house an exhibit..I think about 4 years ago the Chicago Artists Coalition/CAC had the Chicago Art Open there.. It should be a good exhibit, I've know Robin Rios the Owner of the 4Arts inc. Gallery for about 3 years and this is something she has talked about doing so it's really cool to be apart of it..

Now today...is a day to pack up and get the homestead under control too. I do need to cut the lawn with the rain we've had it's took off and I won't be home to cut it so today is the day... I will be heading out tonight to set for the Workshop, it's great that I able to do it the night before takes the edge off.

Off the topics here I pushed myself a bit yesterday and did my 4 miles as usual but then I added another round on the path with my granny running and it felt good I've been doing just a mile but I decided to try the whole way around... I did it.. then after that I came home and shower, had some other things to do and then set the plan in motion for a bit of an artist date...I've not done that for so long... I packed up a multi grain bagel with fresh homemade peanut butter from Whole foods and some carrots and apple and went to a pond that I use to go to when I was in High School.. some 30 years ago..hard to believe.. well any ways I sat on a nice bench with my lunch and bag of goodies... and my camera, snapped some pictures and then I pulled out the journal and started to sketch the Stone gazebo there...I couldn't believe how it was all coming together. First I did a quick pencil sketch and then went into it with a pen...With in lest then an hour lunch was finished and a sketch was done and the day was just so beautiful... I would like to do that again which I'm sure I will...
