Re: show update!

Well guys, I just woke up after an 11 hour sleep!! First thing I did this morning was get on the forum to see if I had a good time or not. There is so much to say and so much to share I don't know where to start. I must say up front, Rod-man, you are the man! A nicer guy you'll never meet. And Mary is truely, truely a sweetheart! At first I was star struck with Charles Ewing, but he is such a gentle man he puts you right at ease. Elaine is an incredible, and generous lady. I really felt a part of the Ampersand family. I learned as much while contributing to the work shop as I did from watching others. While I was demonstrating someone would contribute another way of doing what I was doing, or tell me of a shortcut.

But, I am getting ahead of myself. The show was first. I was so nervous on the way to the show. After 30+ years of show receptions you would think I would be used to by now, but in my art circle the people who see my boards aren't sure of what they are looking at. Here, other scratchers, high caliber artists would be looking at my work. Yikes When I got there it was already filled with other artists. The first person I saw was Kitten. She greeted me with a smile and I said "I know you, you are Kitten." She smiled again and said "You are Diana." And without hesitation we hugged. It really was like a family reunion, I swear. Every time I saw a familiar face I squeeled and we would hug! Everyone was exactly like I imagined they would be.

I am not going to get into the show much now this post is already getting soooo long, I'm not sure anyone will read it to the end. But, after the show when we gathered at the restaurant I knew what it must have felt like to be one of the Impressionists sitting around a table at a European cafe bemoaning that no one understood our art and what it was and how it was our job to educate them, or the surealist's hanging together doing exactly the same thing. I truely believe we have started something here. Something that is bigger than we can imagine. And if we can keep the momentum going we can carry this to such heights it makes my head spin to think of it.

I need some coffee. I'll write more later.

Diana

Re: show update!

Diana....YOU ARE THE SWEETEST LADY!!!!!!!!!!
The single most cherished souvenir that I brought back with me is your card........and you signed it! I got a hug as well!!!!
I can't wait to see you the next time! I have some pics of you that you HAVE to look at when I post them. Maybe they will give you even more desire to go out and pick up one of those airbrush thingys!
Diana....You'll have a special place in my heart always

Re: show update!

Diana you my friend, are a true GEM!! Meeting you and your daughter was worth the trip alone. Your card will always have a special place in my studio, of course I need to finish it first.

I learned sooooo much this weekend, if my head ever stops spinning I am going to try to put it to practice.

Re: show update!

A short note to let everyone know it was probably a good thing that most of the work was behind glass in this instance, because if you look at all the glass coverings they are covered in nose prints!! I have never been to an opening where the average viewing distance was 1/2 an inch. For those of you not there I wish we had hidden microphones behind your work. Huge, huge successes!!

Allan, I think it might be a good thing we don't live closer to each other. The way we go off with our creative bouncing back and forth our heads might explode!!

Greg, you are such a sweet man, but after reading about the party you all had at Rod-man's house I'm not sure about any of you. JAIL!?! Greg, Greg, Greg. (Picture my head shaking slowly).

OK Pam, I will write more shortly.

Diana

I'm right here to and agree 100% with Pamela...write away. It's not as good as actually being there, but it helps ...

Re: show update!

Well folks - I'm going nuts at work trying to read all this and hoping for new pics! People actually have the nerve to come up to me ans ask for help like this is a library or something. All you guys who had your Man cards revoked haven't caught on yet - they've been replaced by Pure Spirit cards. Blessings on you all.

It was actually tiring watching people putting their GRUBBY MITTS all over the Sheepdogs and the Tiger.

Re: show update!

I just got home and wanted to post just a couple of pictures before I go to a Hobby Shop to get new tools I saw at the workshop. I guess you all can see Diana has rock star status with this group. They all are great people that have a passion for what they do.

I was going to hold this until I gathered my thoughts but at the motel this morning I read some of the post others made and something Michael said hit home. He said this was possibly a life changing event.(words to that effect)
I thought of that and seeing the art and getting a chance to meet the artists and it is amazing how you can in fact see the personality of the artist in all of the art. I think it will forever change the way I look at art. I really need to get things put away and get some rest.

The first picture wiil be when I waited in a line to work my way back inside. As soon as I cleared the doorway I just raised my camera and took this shot.


Think there is any interest in this workshop?



I will get organized in the next day or so to post more. Rick

Re: show update!

At one point in the evening, about an hour into the show, Harold, my daughter and I went accross the street to grab a bite of dinner. (Thank you Harold for keeping us company). There was a reasonable crowd when we left. A large enough crowd to consider the show a sucess, but when we came back 45 minutes later it was so crowded there was a group outside waiting for some people to clear out so they could come in!!
And while we are on the subject of Harold, he is a natural born teacher. You will notice how calm and patient he is on the tutorial that was put on youtube, while the rest of us would brake out occasionally like a bunch of bratty kids. He held his calm and just kept demonstrating. And he sure makes it all so easy to understand. He has a way of making you believe you can do it too.
You will notice I am talking about my new found family in just bits at a time. I have strong feelings about these folks and I am somewhat emotional so I figured if I do a few at a time I won't act like a big baby. And, oddly enough, I feel closer to those of you who couldn't come. We must make sure that next time we find a way to increase our group!!!

Diana
