I started this entry several weeks ago but as many of you know, I had to say goodbye to my sweet Sophie last month so blogging fell by the wayside. Here's what I learned/can remember from my first official 'paint out' -
1. Artists (well, at least this group) are really lovely people.
2. Memphis bugs scoff at bug spray. All natural, deet-free, deet-full, doesn't matter, there were swarms of biblical proportions.
3. There are a surprising number of people in Shelby Park at 9 am on a random Thursday. Seriously, do people not have jobs?
4. This is way harder than it looks. There is a clear disconnect between what I know the painting should be and the physical execution (if you've ever seen me play tennis, it's similar.)
