I was raised in the country and then reluctantly moved to the city and ended up staying in the city for way too long before I found a way back to the country. We all have to make choices in life and moving to the city was one I never thought I would make, I was living on the outskirts of Los Angeles and during that time I became an art representative for illustrators and photographers. I loved working with the artists and watching the creative process take place. I was the go between for artist and client. It was a big job and one that was never dull. Lunch dates were common for an art representative. It was a way to entertain your clients and hopefully future clients and I went on many a 'lunch date'. The painting above was painted here in the foothills and it just reminded me of those client meetings long ago. My OTT light is out over my easel in my studio. One is ordered and I will be back in business soon. During this time I really need to venture out and paint a few more trees. Now if I can get the weather to cooperate. We have had rain and we are expecting more to come our way. Memories made for "A Painting Day".
