This is my New Gal Pal Angela & our story is a funny one…
When Cindy & I went to Austin to take Diane Cooks “Framed” Class (previous post if you missed it)there was a mystery student. Diane had told me before that there was student from the town where I live registered for the class but, that it was a man’s name. Did I know anyone by this last name(it is unusual)? I said “Yes” that’s my vets name but, she’s a woman…
Well, the day of class Diane said “No one has responded to my emails on the mystery student”. Pretty soon the doorbell rang & in walked Angela.
Now that in it’s self is not so unusual. What is unusual is that Angela & I had met at least 6 to 8 months ago. I had gone into Pottery Barn in Ft Worth & she was working there. She walked up to me & said “I KNOW YOU”. Hmmmm I had never met her before. She said “I read your blog all the time & I’m one of your stalkers”. We laughed & talked, promising to get in touch as we wanted to start a local Art Group (because she too has issue’s with her friends “getting” what she likes) We lost each others phone numbers, life got busy & in the way but, we had been wishing to hook up. It took her husband buying the class for her (as a surprise) & planning a weekend together in Austin for this to happen. She & I were so excited & have since hooked up. She is an amazing artist & we have SO MANY THINGS IN COMMON! Like Mermaid/Ocean LOVE!!!!
I have to show you the AWESOME Art Case (above)she made for attending classes & Art Events. Below she is sitting at her spot while Diana is teaching. The case is open so she can see all her treasures for creating.
Back of the case below.
A New Art Buddy…. PRICELESS!
Stay tuned for more info as we put together our Art Group. And if you are wondering if Angela has a Blog so you can learn more about her… NO! But, I’m workin on that.
