Busy day today - I've got an event this evening. It's an Arts Night at an elementary school. I'm given a classroom, which I turn into a pet portrait gallery, complete with a digital slideshow, finished artwork and pieces in process, including preparatory sketches and studies. For 4 hours tonight I will lead short drawing lessons and talk about the faces you have all seen as part of Painting a Dog a Day, encouraging children and young adults to consider their love for art as they plan for their futures.
It's always a great night, and I return home exhausted yet painfully energized. I'm looking forward to it.
And exercising the option of not painting tomorrow, should I feel like I need a little down time.
So perhaps I'll see you tomorrow, perhaps it'll be come Monday. Either way, make it a good time!
Thanks for sharing the Dog-a-Day paintings with your friends and family!
