I received an email from the San Diego Museum of Art about a drawing class Friday afternoon. I ummed and ahhed and then decided to go for it. By that time I had my Word for The Year (abide) and I wanted to illustrate it and be a part of the Abbey of the Arts Photo Party for the month.
So I went early and wandered around Balboa Park, where the Museum is situated and just enjoyed being there. No pressure. No rush.
I visited the Timken Museum of Art and gazed upon their icon collection. I bought a few slides with the hope that I can trace from the projected images and write those icons. We'll see. I need a ton more practice first.
It was a fabulous winter's day. The gloves, scarf and coat came off pretty quickly once I arrived.
I sat by a fountain in one of the gardens, got out my Anglican prayer beads and prayed.
a sense of peace and delight
I don't know if I will make it to all the drawing sessions at the Museum of Art but it sure makes for a day filled with good energy!
