I had it all the Time by Alan Cohen
Think about the last decision you made.
What's your decision making MO ?
Are you impulsive ? or do you need to have all your facts in front of
you to see how to proceed ?
Most of us are a little of both, most of the time.
An American Artist Master's Workshop in September in Colorado Springs, with plein air Masters Richard Schmid and Kevin Macpherson to name a few, seemed almost 'decided for me'.
I was online when an email popped in my mailbox from American Artist. It stated that the registration was opening at 1:00 for the workshop - I looked at the time - 12:50 - I popped over to the website, which stated SORRY, registration not open yet...well, I checked back 3 or 4 times til 1:00 -I mean, it became like an ebay auction. At 1:01, I had gained access and began to read the jist of what the workshop was. Before I knew, I had submitted my registration and picked out all my sessions.
I sat back to digest what had just happened. Then I went back into the site to see exactly what I had signed up for. I noticed I had left one morning blank - I chose another session and a red flag popped up that the class was now full.
Ever hear the quote ?
“Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Once you really make a decision or pay attention to the synchronicity (there's that word again) you move in the direction of your strongest focus.- you're living in the moment. Make the decision today to do something for you.
I am thrilled to have this opportunity to watch these Modern Masters at work .

About Monhegan Island
The Island has been an artists colony for many years.I have been visiting the island since 1974. I first went there, like you're thinking of doing, for an artworkshop. I guess you could say it's been my longest love affair. You have to visit to understand. Once you do, it's like you've always been there. And when you leave, you feel a piece of you remains there.
Monhegan Island is Maine, but totally different - first, it's an island and island life is slow. Second, the island is very artist friendly. The serenity of the island extends to the encouragement of artists dotting the landscape daily. Everywhere you look, is a painting waiting to happen.
Famous Monhegan Artists
I have been lucky to have met a few of these artists and even become friends.
Lawrence C. Goldsmith was my mentor for over 30 years
I was even honored a few years ago with having the Monhegan Museum ask to acquire one of my paintings.
