2. I am grateful to have had the chance to see Louis Masai paint today. I enjoy his work and admire his conviction to conservation. Seeing him work was a pleasure.
3. I am grateful that I managed to get my train from Paddington. I think it meant that I had about 2 hours of light sleep but d7606 was only going to be working for the morning and as I came to Bristol specifically to meet him, I didn't want to miss him.
Joy - It was a joy to be outside in the sunshine the whole day. I didn't realise it but I got a wee bit of a sunburn in the clouds and sun today.
Oneness - watching Louis paint is like watching a well choreographed ballet. I can't paint or draw or do anything visual other than shoot what I see. But, I did once do modern dance and perform. And so, I watched Louis with the frame of reference I have.
Service - I bought a couple of pieces of art today. They are not expensive and so, to say that is service is a bit much, but the intention behind buying the pieces is to support the artists in my small way.
And so that you can get a taste of the beauty of watching Louis Masai paint:
And...Louis' Finished Piece:
