Yes we were blessed with a gentle mild rainfall today..my lilacs are fragrant and the honeysuckle is in full bloom. The air is sweet and the new birds are singing happily on my front porch. Finally the earth is full of grace...and the sun is peeking through beautiful soft clouds unfolding early this morning. As I drove into downtown to my studio ...the music from the 1960's surrounded my heart with memories from Louisville.
As I opened up for the day Sarah... a retired psychology professor greeted me and told me her watercolor glass would be having lunch together in the central gallery. Then sunshine walked in...Candice came in after her weekend graduation celebrations. We introduced each other and shared lunch and other experiences in making our Art. It was a great lunch...and then Marilyn retrieved her pins from her broken arm...that she requested Kevin at Myers and Pugh make into a special recovery pendant! We all laughed at her bravado!!! In her 80's ...she has more energy that the other artists at the whole table!
I continued working ...preparing for the remembering of our Father's Days...coming up quickly in June! As I was working I got a call from a student's mother from back in 1984....her twin sons are both extremely talented and she wanted to invite us to s SURPRISE party on May 19th...before Steve leaves for China. Yes China...Steve is working on the NEW Star Trek movie with all the original cast. Steve won an Oscar for the Life of Pi in his digital animation and is now headed back to the movie world and the magic it continues to develop and create! WOW that year when they doodled in my Math classes has really paid off!
Sarah ran into one of her former students ...Mike had her back in the early 1990's and he recognized her distinctive voice. We should all honor our beloved teachers!
I hope you had a great Monday in your studio. Imagine and Live in Peace, Enjoy the lilacs and honeysuckle scents in the air. Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
