A very nice surprise…

Hello Everyone!

Wow! Today was such an exciting day!

My hubby and I woke early and went to Glastonbury today.

When we arrived, I saw a new shop there, and was quite surprised at what it said on the header of the shop.

Actually it is a new gallery. Actually the name of it is “The Mystic Garden Linda Ravenscroft Gallery”.

YES, I MET  ARTIST LINDA RAVENSCROFT!

I bought her latest book, “THE MYSTIC GARDEN”.

It is a very special edition, as there are only certain books that she has sketched a special sketch in the front of the book.

It was just a great day, Im so happy we decided to go to Glastonbury today!

Linda Ravenscroft is one of my fave fantasy artists and I am still “in the clouds” from the chance meeting today!

She gave me a few art tips and tricks  today and she asked me if we come to Glastonbury often. We are going next month.

She wants to see some of my artwork.

She is such a nice person, and I can’t wait til next month to talk to her again!

Here is her website:  http://www.lindaravenscroft.com/

It has been almost a month since I have done a painting. You certainly get out of practice when you don’t paint for a while, and I know that I am out of practice.

I hope to be a bit more committed to painting in May, the only thing is, outside circumstances sometimes hinder me from moving on, and I am going to make it a goal to paint at least once per week in May. (I hope to).

Thank you for visiting.
