Last Sunday, May 13th (Mother's Day) a group of 26 people traveled together from Los Angeles to the San Diego Zoo. We went to draw! I wish I could have gotten photos of other people's work, but friending almost everyone on Facebook is just as good.
Here we all are:
We were there from 10am until 6pm, when the zoo closed. It was probably one of the best art-centered days of my life, just because, y'know. Field trip without teachers, without restraints. Meeting new people and riding the sky gondolas with old friends and new. A sunny day without it being too hot or crowded. The big cats were hiding though, as they usually do on hot sunny days.
After the zoo my car (consisting of Matt le husband, Jason our good friend, Brittany, Jimmy, and myself) drove half an hour to Stone Brewery, which is like... the best restaurant ever. Good food, good beer, beautiful location with giant glass walls, wood beams and ceilings, stone fountains and tables, and a sizable garden right down the steps from the tables where everyone sat and ate and chatted, relaxed and happy.
