For the past month there has been usually two artists' studio tours each weekend. This weekend, not a one. I have to admit I am a bit relieved. Since early April my weekends have been so full with birthday parties, studio tours, kids fairs, art shows, and life. And as fun as all that stuff is, I am happy not to have anything to do this weekend.
Now I just want to paint! Every time I finish a painting, I am eager to get another started. So that is my goal this weekend.
Here is my latest. It is similar to "Neighbours". I like painting on a vertical canvas. I always think this orientation fits perfectly on a narrow wall or at the end of a hall.
Laundry Night. acrylic on canvas. 12" x 36".
My favourite time of day is dusk. I love when it starts to get dark that you can still see some colour and glow in the sky. This is the feeling I wanted for both of these pieces.
I don't know what it is with me painting laundry though. Strange considering I absolutely hate doing it. As I type this, I have 6 loads of laundry to fold...yes, 6!!
