Meeting the artist

Artist Jack Stuppin and a few of his oil on canvas paintings

Art and live music filled our rainy afternoon. Mama and I met up with friends at a local museum to see a band called Dirty Cello perform.

Before the concert, we walked around the Art Museum of Sonoma County and fell in love with the work of Jack Stuppin. I was fascinated with his vibrant oil painting technique. His paintings have texture and feel dimensional.

And then suddenly, out of nowhere, we got to meet the artist personally! I couldn’t believe it! We went back through the museum again, and when I circled back, he was still there! He was kind enough to chat with me about how he developed his unique technique.

Dirty Cello performs

The concert was wonderful as well. First a quartet of ladies sang lovely Babershop melodies. And then Dirty Cello performed. We especially loved how the Cellist threw her head back and was feeling the music. She was a joy to watch and we look forward to listening to their cd!

Today’s #OneGoodThing was meeting an artist whose work I love and admire — and enjoying live music and art with Mama and our beloved More Diane! Major #OneGoodThing of the day was getting hugs from More Diane!
