We are back. We had a wonderful weekend. Best mum's day evah! But no time to blog about it properly now, I have company in the form of my 2nd youngest sister (yay!). But a short art update...managed to do a couple of quick journal pages on our weekend away, and worked on a small canvas board painting today.
Inspired by the Dancing Queen:
A stolen moment with my new Golden colours on Mother's day. E&L chose them all by themselves!
And the first of what will be several artworks inspired by the barren, almost post apocalyptic, après winter yet pre-spring prairie landscape. It was strangely beautiful...huge sky, burnished colours, rough expanses of dead, yet golden grasses, farmers burning fields, spires of smoke, bare branches, rooks and hawks...I saw a thousand paintings as we hurtled by yesterday...
The first attempt:
A better blog coming on Wednesday.
