I sat down to paint this image inspired by an old photograph. I am rather pleased with how it turned out. I am struggling to let go of outcomes and just paint what speaks to me. It may not be lucrative but it seems more important. This is one of the images that haunts me until I do something about it. I like that there are images that do that but I don't know why they pester me.
I like how collage allows you to bring together things just seem to go together. You don't have to have any advanced drawing or painting skills to attend and enjoy a collage class. Just grab what speaks to you and start gluing.
I made several collages for the "Papier Colle Femmes" project a few years ago. I was very fond of a few of the collages and have missed them ever since. I decided to create similar ones for my own benefit.
This one depicts Artemis, goddess of wild animals.
Fresh back from a week at Red Deer Summer Series, a week long painting class with Justin Ogilvie (a very fine teacher). Big thanks go out to the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance for their grant that enabled me to attend this outstanding level of instruction.
Time is flying by. I have been busy with grant applications and board meetings. I have a show at the Hidden Garden Gallery that I need to prepare for. My daughter and grand daughter are arriving for a visit. Too much fun!!
Thinking of Jasper county. Driving in the work truck with Mom and Dad as
Dad made his last check of the day on the pump jacks he took care of.
Summer air as warm and fluid as milk. Cornstalks obscuring the sightline
of crossroads. Lightning bugs at dusk.
This is a painting from a few years back. I was taking photos of the girl's twin sister who was modeling for us. When I looked over at this sister, who was patiently waiting her turn, I was smitten with her pose.
I am an acrylic painter exploring color and texture. I like horses, Canadian wildlife, old trucks, bold women, kind men, tequila and cashews. Most paintings are for sale. Contact me for prices and shipping if you are interested in purchasing a painting. And thanks for viewing my blog!
