I missed the opening reception of an art exhibit my good friend Kathryn had several paintings in this past January. We have been trying to get to the Hinsdale Center for the Arts for several weeks since. Today we were finally able to meet up. I’m so glad I was able to see her paintings in such a fine setting in Katherine Legge Park and I am so very proud of her. Over the years of a long friendship, I have grown to appreciate watercolors largely through my gifted friend’s influence and exceptional work.
I’ve also been the recipient of several of Kathryn’s watercolors, one of which hangs in a special place here in the library/den where I am usually found working.
Rarely do Kathryn and I meet when food is not involved. Today was no different. Lunch at the Moon Dance Diner and then desert at Kirstin’s Bakery a few doors down made for a most enjoyable time to talk, laugh, and generally solve the world’s problems.
Not a bad way to spend the last day of February.
Our world was covered in millions and millions of tiny droplets of ice this morning as we met up. They were so beautiful dripping in frozen disbelief all around the park and up the walk to the art center.
Thank you, Kathryn, for all the beauty your paintings bring.
