While I was live painting, a nice man kept coming by to look at my art & watch me paint. We talked about art for quite awhile & how it makes us feel. He told me he was a painter too & we shared the mutual feelings of how the hours go by while painting & it feels like only minutes. We talked about how art transports you into another world where you don't feel pain, your cares seem to float away & you can enjoy just living & breathing in a place of creative freedom. Then I asked him what brought him to Edmonton & he told me he was a musician, a drummer actually. I told him my son was a drummer too & that I sing & play piano too. I asked him where he was playing & he said, “Oh! Rogers Place.” I said, 'Oh wow! Who do you play with?' He said, 'I’m the drummer for Def Leppard.” Well that was a surprise! I think my eyes bulged out of my head but I tried to play it cool. 😎I made a new famous friend & that was a pretty cool day.
