Have You Ever...a look into the everyday life of an artist

Have You Ever...set up a plein-air workshop an hour from your studio and realized upon arriving that you left your demo painting back in your studio? I set up a plein-air (French meaning - "in the open air") workshop at the Denver Botanic Gardens, an hour from Colorado Springs. I brought everything else I needed, but I forgot my demo painting that I had drawn and ready to go. So, instead of starting with the demo, I had the workshop participants go take photos and familiarize themselves with the gardens and I quickly drew a new scene that I could demo. I was a little frazzled to say the least, but I think the day turned out OK.
