At long last, Kevin Neal came by today. Finally, he caught a lucky break in his hectic life and we got to meet in-person before our spring time move.
Kevin is a tremendously talented artist working in watercolors, oils and pencil. In addition to his artistic gifts, he is a nice person, intelligent, politically astute and has a wonderful family. You could say I'm a fan.
He brought along some samples of work I'd seen on his blog, too. It's always great to see artwork in- person previously seen only on a computer screen. We all know the challenges of capturing decent images of our art for the virtual world, so it was really special to view Kevin's "real" work today.
Over coffee, we discussed art techniques, galleries, our respective personal histories and even a little politics for spice. After a photo session, he had to head home and either take a nap or watch college football. Since he'd been awake since three AM, my guess is he'll do both--at the same time!
Thanks for stopping by, Kevin, and rest well, my friend!
