Twilight, 36″x24″, acrylic
Well – it was close – a long night and an intense day – but it is finished. It was a wonderful learning experience and it will be fun to see it after having not been able to look at it for a couple of days. Photographs are never the same… and this one is not so good as I didn’t have time to tweak the colour with the painting in front of me. I will likely replace this photo with a better one on Monday. I find perspective can either help you to like something more or, occasionally, to revisit the question – “What was I thinking?!?”.
My friends Scott and Bonnie were setting up the show, which opens Friday night, so I was able to sneak a look at the art that had already arrived. Every year the caliber of art keeps getting higher. Muskoka has a high proportion of its population involved in the arts and it is certainly evident. I may have to make a point of getting to see the show after all. One of the little pieces I got to see belonged to Scott and Bonnie’s daughter, Jodie. She did a gorgeous little bird house. The artistic genes of the parents have certainly been passed on….
I think I will take a couple of days off and consider taking on the big 30″x40″ canvas next week. I am feeling like it is time to get back into the bush….. Still lots of snow there!
