Here is another 8x8 painting for the 500 show. It has been really fun to paint for this event. I understand that there is more like 600 artists involved, not just 500. We all got 10 panels to paint. Can you imagine..? All the information about the opening (December 13) is in my sidebar on the left.
Dave and I went for a walk this afternoon. It rained buckets! (...but my sherbet-y green Columbia Sportswear jacket kept me mostly dry).
Hope you are enjoying your day --wherever you are and whatever you are doing! :)
The weather was rough today, very cold and windy. I wanted to paint something and settled on my Winsor Newton jar with brushes. This is just 30 minutes into it and I'll do more tomorrow. Still life practice is a fine way to stay warm and dry.
