My husband and I took a short trip to Oregon to visit family. So wonderful to laugh and cry with my clan. Oregon is in early spring with crocus and daffodils blooming.
The sketch below is what it looks like in the town near where I live. I refuse to compare.
I’ve been waiting to tell you about a 1% for Art project I was chosen to paint for a retirement home in Fairbanks. Just in case you might not know what that is, we have a law that any building using tax money must use 1% for art on the building. It can be just about any form of art that will last the life of the building. I submitted a sketch for this building and they told me that mine was the only sketch that was positive and affirming of growing old. Could be that I’m closer to that group of people than they know…
Here is what I was looking at today. Three canvases make up the image that will be 32″x11′ long(81cm x 335cm).
See that tiny little sketch in the middle? That is what I have in mind for this piece. I’ll post when I get to another step. Since I took this photo this morning I’ve painted the sky. This is going to be so much fun…stay tuned!
