Hampden Crit Group

I love my critique group. It is a wonderful group of well established artists that meets once a month at the Hampden Gallery space. This time I brought my figurative commission piece and an eye piece in progress. I feel thankful for the feedback I receive and try to give good feedback as well. What I enjoy most is the practicing the "Art talk" about my own work and others. It is a great way to hone your communication skills. We are all committed to the group and respect each other even if we don't agree sometimes:-) It is well worth the 45 min. drive.

Once in a while we end with lunch at Amherst Chinese like we did today...and the reason I mention this is because I was left with such delightful feelings about my day with them.

Lately I have been reaching out more and trying harder to honor my intuition about making connections with others. A follow your bliss kinda thing...or something like after lunch I went to meet an artist for coffee who's work I love but had never met in person before. She was a lovely woman and I enjoyed our conversation. Thanks Lilly :-)
A truly special day filled with special people....a day that makes you happy to be alive!!
(but tired and ready for bed at the end of the day.. Ha!)

Alicia Hunsicker's art is undeniably beautiful. She is an expert at extracting the highly-detailed textures and fibers of the human body, bringing them from darkness, into the light, with a technical precision that rivals any modern-day master.
