Speaking of Art

Wine was poured and conversation about art flowed freely as those who love creative pursuits gathered at

the Cibolo Nature Center on Thursday evening. It is hard to beat the beautiful combination of spectacular spring weather, good food and drink, stunning musical ambiance, engaging exchange of thoughts, and compelling art. These were marvelously evident at the special opening of the "Our Hidden Treasures" Art and Conservation project at the Center.

I never tire of hearing what people are thinking and feeling when they experience creative works. And it is equally fascinating to listen to an artist lay out their own process of producing these works. Art is about communication, and communication is, itself, an art to be appreciated.

I look forward to the rest of this weekend as I transition to representing my work in the "Parade of Artists." I love rubbing elbows with fellow artists who have such a desire to express the recesses of their hearts to others. And also I love hearing from those who come out to appreciate these creative efforts.

Side note: you can read a brief article on me and my work in the April issue of the Boerne Chamber of Commerce newsletter here (check page 23).
