Joe Anna Arnett. セントラル・パークで...

I went to Central Park yesterday. I saw Joe Anna Arnett painting at the Bethesda Fountain, I was so happy to see her. At about the time I began painting, I found a book, "Painting Sumptuous Vegetables, Fruits and Flowers" by Joe Ann Arnett at the New York Public Library. I love her still life paintings. Since then I've been a fan of hers.
Joe Ann was painting the second painting of the day when I saw her, she had done another one in the morning. I wanted to see it but I couldn't ask as I thought it was already packed away, but she nicely offered to show it to me. They were nice landscape paintings.
She is very friendly, I really enjoyed talking with her. I am uploading a picture with Joe Anna and myself and a picture of the book which is I consider my master book for still life painting.

Hi joseph,
I didn't expect talking with her that's why I was so excited.
