Yesterday I painted in the Library from 2 to 5 (they were closing or I would still be there, I cannot stop once I get into it!). They feature an artist once a month on Fridays and it drew a group of lovely people that were so enjoyable I would rather have been talking with them than painting actually!
I took this painting in with most of it done except the mug and the final touches on what I had started already.
I could not sleep last night thinking about a few things that I wanted to work on, so I got up and worked until ? (no idea as I did not want to know!!). But I am glad I did as it came together and I could sleep!
I will leave it like this for now and look at it again in a few days to see if I want to "fix" anything!
The subject flowers are from the Hydrangea trees we just planted and are the branches that broke in transport in our trunk. The lemon was a Margherita survivor!

On a trip to Vancouver I took my camera on the Skytrain and snapped photos of the commuters. They did not seem to notice or mind, they may have thought that I was taking the scenes out the window.

I am now in "The Figure" mode and am really enjoying the challenge of getting the proportions correct, not as easy as a piece of fruit or tree I must say! I am not certain that this will not get a few more layers of pastel as I see a few things I would like to change but this is pretty much close to being finished.

LADY IN RED
So this is one of my entries. I hope that little ladybug is clear in this photo!
I am painting two more for this show and I hope everyone can come see the show on the 10th or anytime after!!
The Gallery is open weekends and the town of Fort Langley is fantastic. There is the new Martini Bar, what is not to like there! And there is a new "50's" diner that is calling my name! So many quaint shops and eateries to check out there!
UPDATE APRIL 12TH
ROOM WITH A VIEW
Here is the second entry. The photo that I used is from an artist's resource library, it was a photo of a bottle of wine and bread on this ledge and on which ledge I substituted my "WINGS", the pigeon! I think I much prefer Luigi the pigeon on this ledge to the wine bottle and bread! Should I have called it Luigi! I am open to a better name, email me any ideas! Cheers!
