Had a wonderful time at the Winsong Farm, exhibiting a few pieces. Despite the rain, we were protected in the large barn, and people seemed to like the artwork. Leaving the Farm, on the way home , I came across two beautiful subjects, so got out of the van and did the necessary documentation so I can take them to canvas. Need to finish the waterfall piece first, but excited to look forward to the next subject.Many thanks to Winnie and Bill Stott for inviting us.
The Southern Ontario Visual Artists (SOVA) , just set up a great exhibition in the Falls Gallery at Alton Mill Arts Centre, and it continues until July 13th. On the weekend of June 20 and 21, many of the artists will be in attendance, because it is also the Cuisine Art Festival at Alton Mill. This is one of the major festivals for Alton, during the year, and there is usually a very large number of people who come. The studio artists will all be in their studios, there are several chefs there, and different demos and of course , different wine and ciders to taste test.
As for the waterfall painting, I am closing in on the details, and the painting is changing for the viewer.
You can see where the trees that will show along the left side have been blocked in
The rocks to the right of the painting are developing, and the rocks peeking through where the water will be , are almost complete, and I will start painting the water, using thin glazes.
The over all appearance is changing, and I am hoping to complete this piece within a few days.
Hope you will get a chance to visit the studio I share with two other wonderful artists…Charlene Nickels, and Robert Chisholm. 🙂
