I hate to brag, but I turned what could have been a pretty boring, humdrum trip into an amazing, totally inspiring trip and met some great people along the way! This is Alan Watson and Jo Slay. They are artists from Alabama. I introduced myself, and the next thing you know, we're buds!
I had bought one of his paintings earlier in the day, and didn't even realize he was who he was. I just liked the painting. It is called "Sunlit Diver", and it reminded me of my Gabbi Girl who would just as soon live underwater than on land! It was also painted predominantly in the colors of the girls' room at the condo, so I know where it will get to live.
This is a photo of all the artists who were represented in this particular gallery (the SidePorch Gallery)
They have a few little galleries right along this "pedestrian park" where no cars are allowed.
It is situated nicely right behind Mary Mahoney's Restaurant.
This place had some really whimiscal pieces in it. I LOVED these little guys! ! I think we might try to do something similar in art class.
I ended the day with this handsome fella. Am I a blessed girl or what?!
Now how bout you write me a comment so we can "connect"?!
