Spent this afternoon visiting several galleries in the city to admire the recent work of artist friends working in both paint medium and photography. I always enjoy seeing what others have created as so often, as artists, we work in isolation in our studios. So much can be gained from these visits - inspiration, appreciation, perspective, enlightenment. While in one gallery, I met a group of budding young artists full of enthusiasm and excitement over a day spent outside, learning and honing their skills. I recognized the joy that comes from doing something you love, something you feel so deeply, and sharing that understanding with other artists. Kindred spirits with a knowing smile.
