01/28/2006: "A good day"
So, this morning I finally met a local Juneau artist Rob Roys for breakfast at a funky little downtown cafe. He also showed me his gallery, and a space that's available for rent next door that he thinks would also make a good gallery and wants me to maybe go in on it with him. (I should mention that I got to see some of his new work and it looked really good, way to go Rob!)
He's a fun guy, seems to know everyone and has an inside track on all the fun stuff going on in town. Makes me feel kind of lame actually. I'm also not very smooth at meeting new people, i always think afterward...why did I say that? I must have sounded like an ass! Oh well, it's just nice to meet another artist in town who's as serious as I am.
I felt inspired to paint afterwards and I worked on one all day...it didn't go fantastically well but it was fun. I also took another "mystery photo" posted below. Anyone what to take a guess?
Then tonight I went to a party at my friend Ann's house. A really interesting group of people, yummy food and wine, lots of laughing. I almost didn't go. All day I didn't really think I'd go but at the last minute I forced myself because I knew I'd have fun...and of course I did.
Now I have a bit of a buz on and I've decided to start a new painting as it is still a bit before midnight and I have a lot of creative energy at the moment. Some days it's just good to be alive.
