Finally a new painting – and with a curious name in October! The harvest is certainly over….
The fields were so green that, it seemed to me, it was still mid-summer – even though I took my reference photographs in mid-September. I think the hay had been cut so long before that a new grass had grown in over the cut stalks.
The house here no longer exists, it was removed shortly after my visit. I find it a little surprising to go by a place I connected to, and from the road, there is no trace that it had ever been there. I feel privileged, as an artist, to have had this opportunity to paint it before it passed into history.
I was given a quick call this morning by my friend Anita to tell me that my picture was in the paper this week. Photographer Bev McMullen did an article in the Muskokan talking about her experiences photographing artists. One of those images was from the August session shooting for the magazine article in my last post. Very exciting and a nice picture.
Thanks for the head’s up Anita! 🙂
