We went on a quick trip this week to Little Rock, Arkansas. A friend of ours and former boss of Brian's is taking over as the Group Commander for a C130 group at the AFB, so we were invited to attend his change of command ceremony. I wasn't super excited about the location that we were visiting, but thought we'll make an adventure out of it. Little Rock turned out to be a pretty interesting city. We visited Bill Clinton's presidential library, and wondered around the downtown area. I stumbled upon an art exhibit for the Mid-Southern Watercolorists. I immediately recognized a painting by a blogging buddy of mine, Crystal. I couldn't believe it. Crystal doesn't live anywhere near Arkansas, so I wasn't even thinking about finding not one but 2 of her paintings in the exhibit. It was awesome to see her work in person. I realized that I had never actually seen a watercolor exhibit in person,(I've seen one here or there in museums) I'm pretty new to this whole game. I was very encouraged and motivated to push myself and enter some exhibits and competitions. I hope to learn a lot from this next venture. I've already been in contact with some amazing artists throughout this blogging journey. I really feel like I'm on the right track and am excited for what the future holds.
See You next week.
Carrie and Steven
