Sometimes you meet the coolest people in the most unlikely places when you least expect it. My sister Tanya and I were driving along the other day when I spotted a man painting out in the middle of a field. Needless to say, I turned the car around and went back to check it out.
After wading through the weeds in a ditch, then climbing a slight embankment, all done in flip flops, while visions of poisonous snakes danced in my head, (poor Sis, but she was a trooper!), we made our way across the field and met the artist. Small world because he knows my friends, Brian and Michelle, owners of Whole:Mind Body Art. We also met a cute cable guy, who also stopped and made his way across the field to join us and check out the scene… He said he was checking out the flowers in the field because they reminded him of the flowers back home (somewhere up North), but Sis and I were looking kinda hot that day so if he wants to refer to us as flowers….. I’m just saying.
The moral of the story is: You never know who you might meet in the middle of a field if you decide to take a time out and be adventurous! Robert Clements work is featured at Aurum Studios, 125 E Clayton St., Athen,Ga. through May 31.
