I met a lot of wonderful people and had fun talking art all day with fellow artists, art lovers, and neighbors. I even met a Florence Academy-trained classical realist who lives right around the corner.
Saw some old friends and new, past students, current teachers of various disciplines, and generally hung out and discussed everything from Classical Realism to the neighborhood lore about the crazy parties thrown in my courtyard in the 60's.
On top of that, I sold several pieces! So a big success all around.
Plus, my little studio is all clean and spiffy and I'm exited to get back to work on the next batch of paintings.....
