Are you an artist??

I just read this blog from the MN plein air painter, Marc R Hanson, and liked the humor in it so had to share it with you.
This is a paraphrase from his blog:

I have a question... Is there a school out there that teaches the two questions that almost everyone who walks up behind me asks?

1- "Are you an artist, are you painting?"... Easel is up, brushes in my hand, paint all over the palette, paint brush with paint is on the canvas...

2-Remember, they're behind me looking at my painting and what I'm painting... "What are you painting?"

Tonight the last people in the park, besides me, were rock climbers. A young lady clinging and clanging from all of the climbing gear hanging from her body came up and asked me both questions. To answer her first one I said "Yes...Are you a climber?" She stretches out a big grin and says "Why yes I am!".

To answer the second question, I just pointed out in front of me.

Either I'm not doing a very good job, one that she can recognize, or she took the course... I just don't know!!!

Facebook Fan Page

As yet another outlet for my art, I have created a Fanpage on Facebook.  Im told that this is the newest way to get yourself noticed.  You create the page, send invitations to people via Facebook to LIKE you, and somehow you are famous !
Im not quite understanding the logistics of this whole thing, but I did create my page and will feature my artwork on there.   I thought that was what my website was for !!?? 
With all of these places Im supposed to be, .........Twitter, Facebook, FB Fanpage, etc, I don't know when I'll find time to paint !

But if you get the inkling to do so, visit my Fanpage  and LIKE me if you like !
