I love the concept of the "Artist's Date," a special time you put aside to go out with your artistic self and replenish the well. It was originally popularized by Julia Cameron in her book, The Artist's Way and the idea was chosen as this month's prompt over at The Sketchbook Challenge.
Unfortunately, my life does not allow me to set aside much time to go out and play right now. But, to make the most of it, I have tried to squeeze in a couple of Artist's Dates into my schedule. A few weeks ago, I took my camera along with me when we took the dogs to the beach and I posted some photographs here. Yesterday, I took gypsy to visit her groomer at her ranch in the back roads of Montara.
I have always loved this stretch of road and welcomed the opportunity to spend a few moments capturing the light and feeling of this special place.
I think if I lived here, I would be out there everyday with my camera. I am just thrilled to have captured these images and am so glad that I squeezed in a little time for myself.
Have you ever been on an artist's date? Is there a special place that would be your perfect date?
