Sometimes the muse comes in the form of an external event.  
I am fortunate to be juried into a new open studios facility called Studios on the Park. Our studios are opening for the first time the day the Amgen Cycling Tour passes through our lovely Paso Robles here in Central Coast California.  The population will more than double this Thursday and everyone is excited.  Many of the "studio" artists responded to the invitation to paint bicycle inspired works to honor our visitors.
 I have painted several miniatures only 4 inches square and I will show them here over the next few days. The pleasure and lessons learned from doing these paintings came from following my Attracting the Muse rule #7, say yes.
