When artists gather up at the end of the day, raise a glass and swap stories, interesting things happen. As a working artist, I do lots of traveling, teaching and art residencies, shacking up with groups of creatives for varying periods of time.  One of the best parts of this crazy lifestyle is the conversation that happens once the brushes are cleaned and put away for the day.
