|Some of Briant's watercolors|
When I was teaching school, I took my students to the
Red River Revel (great art festival in Shreveport every
fall). I always wanted to be on the other side of the
fence and dreamed of exhibiting there someday. When
I retired, I did. I was an artist there for 5 years in a row.
I met lots of different artists and craftsmen..a great time
to visit and share ideas and inspirations.
One of the artists that I met was Peter Briant from
New Orleans. He is a watercolor painter, and I loved
his work, and especially his professionalism. He was very
organized and his booth and his work were first class.
Well, he visited the Pea Patch Gallery the other day in
Winnfield, and enjoyed lunch and some shopping with his
wife and some friends from Connecticut. They were
visiting and he was showing them the state...and they were
on their way to Natchitoches for the day. He remembered
that he had met an artist from Winnfield, and was happy
to find I was still there! It is wonderful how our lives
are made up of connections and I am happy that paths
