“Sun Study #1” (2008), acrylics on canvas, 16″x20″
Once I got over the shock of the snow this morning, the weather was brilliant; cool air and a bright clear light blue sky. Perfect walking weather. And so, after breakfast at the Skylight, I wandered about on the Drive for a while. Soon enough I found myself in the local art store where I stocked up on colours and canvases. It felt great to walk home with canvases under my arm and visions of paintings in my head.
I spent a lot of the afternoon painting the sun study above and test-painting mountain firs for another piece I’m planning. Life’s pretty good.
