Connections

Women Painters of the Southeast Show
Jacksonville, FL
D with Marsha Savage (Smryna, GA), Candy Day (Ellijay,GA) and Karen Rose (Gainesville, FL)

It struck me over the weekend how Social Media has taken over a great part of our lives.  I was attending the opening of the Women Painters of the Southeast show at Corse Gallery in Jacksonville, FL.  Fortunately, the participating artists had nametags because it made it easy to put names and faces with the Facebook posts of my friends.  This photo has 2 friends of mine, Marsha and Karen, whom I met at different times and different years.  Candy is a new friend who is one of my FB friends and it was nice to meet her at the show.
 
This is Terry Mason (Sarasota, FL) and Diane Mannion (Sarasota, FL) who are part of the Light Chasers Plein Air Painters of the Suncoast.  I paint with them when I am in Siesta Key.  We just had a show at the Celery Barn in Sarasota last month.  It was good to see both of them.  Wandering around the gallery was Katie Cundiff, another plein air artist from Sarasota.  I put a face to Dot Courson from Mississippi another FB friend. There were others in the show whom I knew but weren't there for the opening: Lori, Dawn, and Diane from Nashville, Jane from St Pete, Barbara from Montgomery.  I hope they get by sometime to see it.  It really is a spectacular show, if I must say so myself.  You can see the entire show:  www.onlinejuriedshows.com/ClosedShowThumbs.asp?OJSID=63
Funny thing also happened.  My husband does work with Karen's husband's company.  They knew the same people.  Small world, huh?
I am now looking forward to being in other shows with artists from FB world and making those Social Media Connections. 

Have a great rest of the week, I'll be getting ready for my workshop trip to Provence next week.  I hope to be able to post from there and keep you connected!
