At least once a week, I try to get together with my friend, Aruna, for some artsy endeavors.
June 27th started out slightly dusty when we met and by the time we left a couple of hours later, it was a full blown sand storm.
In fact, the month of June was filled with many of these storms. It seemed like we were having them every few days.
That's when the quote:
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
― Pablo Picasso ―
becomes very literal.
On this day, we were joined by Emina who introduced us to lettering.
We molded some air drying clay.
And, of course, did some sketching.
This past Wednesday, Aruna and I met at a new coffee shop in a new complex that I had not been to yet called Argan Square.
Love how the wooden trellis makes such a gorgeous geometric pattern over the walkway.
The interior of the coffee shop is all about wood so feels very warm and inviting.
This time we played with mixed media and watercolors.
Inspiration can come from anywhere.
It's especially nice to have artsy friends who encourage us to stretch our wings.
