Amidst the chaos of our weekend, I took a couple of hours for myself and went on yet another studio tour. I was going to take a break from studio tours this weekend, but I couldn't resist visiting a couple of artists from the Vic West Art Quest. I ended up going to seven of the 19 artists. The two artists I really wanted to see were Mary Munro and Lana Gray. But my unexpected favourite was Maria Middleton.
Her paintings are abstract in oil and encaustic. She paints in the style that I would like to paint, myself. I am glad that I went.
Most studios are normal enough, but one of the studios, where three of the artists on the tour were showing their works, was on an old, possibly condemned, building. I went in with hesitation and for good reason. Let me tell you, it's a good thing I'm not afraid of mice because while I was looking around a wee mouse scurried in and around the easels. Those less brave than I, would have jumped to high heaven. eeek!
MY ART: I am expecting to make huge progress on my current painting, tonight.
BIRDIES: Bad news. Sean just looked in the new nest and the 5 wee eggs are gone.
Now, off I go. See ya back here next time.
