Several older women out for afternoon strolls stopped to talk to me while I was painting this in Santa Monica Park. One was also a painter and she spoke of a situation much like mine where finished pieces are piling up/leaning against walls. Another spoke of a painting that she purchased for $20 thirty years ago which, she says, she still absolutely enjoys seeing every single day. Still another pointed out a white poodle walking by and told me that I should incorporate "that fluffy rear end" into my next piece. Hilarious (and probably a good idea, too).
Everyone who comes up to speak with me loves art. It is very encouraging and great to get so many perspectives. Yet another reason why plein air painting will be something that I continue.
