This past Saturday I spent a lovely morning out with the London Plein Air Group at Springbank Park. It was the perfect day for painting - not too hot, nice breeze, sunny.
While it wasn't my plan, this painting turned out quite loose ... I think I may have been channelling my inner Monet. Hope you enjoy.
Have a great day!
A few more photos for the day:
Back in February (or around that time), I stumbled on a website called the "Travelling Chicken". It turns out, there is this little a ceramic hen that has been travelling all over the world for the past 5 years. The chicken travels from artist to artist and each artist paints their interpretation of the chicken. I LOVE this kind of stuff, so signed up immediately. Now... fast forward 5 months, and yes, the Chicken has FINALLY arrived. I've included a fews photos at the end of this post if you want to check her out!
While I will spare you the details in this blog post, you can learn more about the Travelling Chicken Project if you click here (if you are an artist, you could even consider signing up yourself). You can also check out the Facebook page.
If you would like to learn about what the Travelling Chicken and her friends got up to while they visited me check out my two blog posts:
1. Blog Post #1 - TC & Senor Azul have arrived in Ontario
2. Blog Post # 2 - Happy 150th Bird-Day Canada!
I highly recommend the above blog posts!
Here is the portrait I completed for my part of the Travelling Chicken Project!
