This past weekend was a blast, the art tour went very well, but I do have to say it was exhausting. All the prep work and hours did make a difference though,and it was lovely to have so many visitors and fellow artists and art enthusiasts through my studio. Thank you to all who came to support the local artists! I did paint during the show, my work in progress was the “Simms Family Portrait”, which is coming along swimmingly and I think I am almost half done! Here I am in my little set up for the weekend painting my heart out.
This is the fabulous photo I have been eagerly awaiting for. It is a photo of my husband’s great grandmother and her eldest four children, it was taken in Carbonear Newfoundland a looong time ago. I am going to be replicating this photo in an oil painting. It was taken at a Sunday school picnic by a photographer, and she paid $3.50 to have it taken.
