Art, wine, chit and chat,
artists, lookers, mixing, while
art observes it all.

At the f8 Undressed Opening
(with a little story)

Thanks to Brad Maushart, artist in our drawing group and f8 Gallery owner.

It's an art party with art from our figure drawing group.

Well attended.

There's a bow tie on the artist, really.

Always a still life of refreshments...hey, it's an art party opening.

Lively conversation.

My art was on this wall, three small watercolors. I passed by a nice young couple wearing knit caps. He was a flooring contractor, nice couple. They were playing a game...

He liked one work of art on this wall, his favorite, and it was up to her to guess which one. She'd missed three times. She pointed to one of mine, the top left one, and asked, "This one?"
    He replied, "You're getting close." He pointed to another one of mine to the right." "This one."
    It was, Model Relaxing Study II, a watercolor of Rachel Eastman from our figure drawing group in Kennebunkport, Maine. See it HERE.
    They looked at me.
    I said, "Really, you like that one? Why?"
    He said, "I like the simplicity, the minimalism, the sweep, the motion. I like it."
    I said, "I have to words to say to you." I paused. "Thank you."
    Their eye's popped and they smiled.

Familiar fine artists...
