Wednesday Wanderings: Old Friends

It has taken me a while to get this posted, but it's worth doing, even if it's a bit late!

This year I participated in a fantastic Easter Art Exhibit at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building in Salt Lake City. It was a great time, with about 40 artists exhibiting, including myself and Robert Barrett, who was one of my instructors in the Illustration program at BYU and an artist I really admire. My friend, a great illustrator and artist Sam Kennedy, also dropped by the show and we had a great time catching up. 

There is a certain camaraderie among artists. Few others understand the trials and triumphs of trying to capture your vision in just the way you want to. Few others can relate to the ins and outs of the business and the unique personal investment it takes to create. I value their input and their friendship and getting to see them made the show even better.

Isn't the Joseph Smith Memorial Building an amazing place? Look at that beautiful ceiling! I've been accepted into the Inspirational Art Association's Christmas Showcase 2014 on December 3rd-6th, which will be held there, too. I'm excited to show there again!
