Art Patrons come for a visit
Meet two of my collectors who came all the way from Maryland to meet me last Sunday: Pat + Doreen. They also purchased quite a few of my nudes for which they had been in search of and that is how they found me- on the internet awhile ago, in their search. A couple of weeks ago when I published my recent postcard for the landscape show that I am in with other DP members (Jamie Grossman, Jan Blencowe + Takeyce Walter), Pat wanted to come to see that and have a studio tour at the same time of his visit. I was up for that and where I live has so much to offer people from out of the area to tootle around and see in this Hudson River Valley. Then we went out to a wonderful lunch and had much to talk about. Pat is an engineer who works with NASA scientists on projects related to weather. A part of his work he makes creative power point presentations and always includes Artwork in his presentations to create a visual memory for the scientists who he is presenting to- NO! not nudes! He has presented some very fun and creative ideas for me to collaborate on with him where Art + Science meet. I was so amped up from our meeting filled to the brim with ideas. I am going to start off working on a logo image for him that is from satelite imagery.
A side note:
You never know who you are going to meet and what it can lead to in the uncharted new landscape of Art on the internet.....I for one, have met quite a few interesting people. Some online through words, some on phone and some in person. All have been adventures that have filled my life in unexpected ways and I have some very colorful stories to tell and some that I won't tell.... ;)
