Thursday’s post…. (on Wednesday lol!!!)
I am trying to discipline myself to post only (?) twice a week – Mondays and Thursdays.
The plans for today’s post went out the window when I responded on Monday to a “not quiet clear” message left on my answering machine late Friday afternoon.
Once I located the caller (indeed from the Surrey Arts Council) and cleared up – amongst chuckles and good fun – me having dialed the right number, the conversation turned serious and from one minute to the next I felt I was being challenged (well “challenged” is a word I concluded later, as a choice!).
You are an artist, aren’t you?
Y- e - s …?
Didn’t you get the Call for Entry for the Fraser Downs Art Competition, Exhibition and Sale?
Y- e - s … I loooove horses, but I don’t have any paintings of horses and I don’t paint realistic paintings, I am just mainly doing “abstract watercolours”
Then why don’t you do one?
Ok! That, took me for a bit of spin, and some thinking …
I was just about to rebel, when I decided yesterday, to go ahead and make the deadline in 10 days?
Well, it runs Nov. 9, 10 & 11 – which means I am going to be engaged in some serious work in the next few days.
I have already done my ground and prep work - got to get to my brushes now!
Have a little – smile - go ahead click on it - with the “blind test” while I am "otherwise engaged"....
Love and joy to ya'll - left a true Halloween story at WordRapture
