I haven’t really taken myself on an Art Date (highly recommended by Julia Cameron of the Artist’s Way) for quite awhile, at least not one by myself. I went over to St. Petersburg, FL to see the Frida Kahlo exhibit at the Dali Museum on the waterfront. It was well worth the $10 parking fee and $17 ticket to see it… paintings, drawings and photos with lots of great explanation. I followed with a tapas lunch in the museum and a visit to the gardens. Then I went on to Whim-so-Doodle just see what was new and hit a big sale… fill your shopping bag from their bargain tables for just $25. Now that was fun. I got papers and paints and stamps and washi tapes. On to the Chihuly Glass Museum in its new location. It’s quite a bit larger and very modern. I stopped into the Morean Arts Center across the street to see the Photography exhibit and then went on to Haslam’s Used Bookstore. Whew! I was a happy and inspired woman after all that!
I must’ve really enjoyed myself, because 3 days later I took myself into Hyde Park and breezed through Anthro, Papyrus, West Elm, PB and a new store call Moon Scapes. Not a lot of shopping but a big input of inspiration. I must make a note to do this more often. I get too bogged down in my own little world sometimes. What will you do on your next Artist Date? Please let me know!
