This morning I was at a Walk for Farm Animals in Tower Grove Park. The total good that we supplied to the world may be debated, the participants on the whole probably felt they were making a difference. Many holding signs and others giving (friendly) chants, we were a snake of well-intentions, winding our way south along Grand, and then back down into the Tower Grove enclaves of large red bricks homes. It was a gorgeous blue day, and made for some excellent people watching. Go animals!
While waiting for it to start I checked my mail, and in it was one entitled “33October Submissions.” When I clicked on it, it read: “Congratulations!…” So I’m going to (a small part) of a gallery showing next week. It is my first try at getting into a show after a lifetime or being rather content to doodle at my own pleasure, without doing anything serious with drawing. Today I am excited (and a bit shocked) to have something I made on a wall others will view. More than this I am looking forward to getting to know the rather robust arts community that pulstates around my immeadiate nieghborhood. I went to this group’s, MySLArt’s, September show, and was welcomed as an inquiring stranger, and am looking forward to returning.
Perhaps all three of the pieces I submitted were chosen; I don’t know yet. It was a very good day. Perfect temperature for an early Fall day, and a lunch at Lemongrass (the “fish-head” place). I also went to a few local coffee shops, to see if they would like to feature my work in the future.
