Just Life| Panteha discovers the Goodwin Art Gallery

Last Wednesday on my lunch break, I stumbled inside Goodwin's art gallery for the very first time and I ended up having a wonderful conversations with a couple of artists

The walls of the Goodwin gallery were covered by beautiful art pieces. 

One of these paintings was called the " Carousel". The painting looked familiar and I remembered seeing it in the paper a while back.

So I am admiring this painting and the lady behind the desk tells me that the artist, Richard Atchison is the man who is standing in front of the counter. So I told this artist that I love his carousel painting and we started talking for a while.

I found out that he is a retired illustrator and I invited him to visit the Troke library.

Any way, it feels good to venture out to discover new places and to re-energize.
