Social Caterpillar

Last week I found myself attending social events on three consecutive evenings. I haven’t been out that many nights in a row since I was a busy mom driving kids to and from various activities. And don’t tell them, but this past week was (marginally) more fun. I’m not quite a social butterfly yet, but I am a fun-loving caterpillar.

On Wednesday I went to a group painting activity at Painting With a Twist in Tallahassee. Thursday evening I saw Train at Cascades Park. Then on Friday I attended an art show at Florida State University’s Museum of Fine Arts.

One of the women I’ve met through the Tallahassee Women’s Meetup group had a piece selected for the show, and I went to support her.

That’s Martha M. Lord, below, with her oil painting, Spring Haven. The painting was displayed incorrectly. It should have been rotated 90° to the left, and my photo doesn’t do it justice. These manatees make me happy.

I wandered around the event like I knew what I was doing, admiring art, oohing over some pieces, looking bemused at others.

Boots on the Ground by Judy Lipman Schecter

I didn’t get artists’ names on these, but they all caught my unpracticed eye.

The evening was fun. I didn’t turn into a butterfly, but I think it might be time to spin my chrysalis.

Soon….

      1. Interesting! My mind didn’t go there. The little shoes were laid out on a dirt background. My take on it was “we send our babies off to war.” But then, I’m a mom.

  1. Nananoyz, I found your post tonight while searching my name online. I was pleasantly surprised to see my art work in the post… thank you! I’ve met your friend Martha Lord on a couple of occasions. She is a delightful, accomplished artist…

    1. I loved your bee art! Had I not met Martha I’d never have been at that art exhibit. Isn’t it wonderful how the world works? My name is Leslie Noyes, by the way. Let’s stay in touch.
