|"Winter" watercolor on 260lb Arches by Carrie Waller|
I'm a day delayed in my post because it's Thanksgiving break at our house and yesterday we took the day off:) I'm so glad that the boys are home all week. We also have family coming into town tomorrow. We are excited at our house:) Let the pie making commence!!!
I'm sharing my latest painting. This is a painting of my Grandmother, which she will not be fond of because she'll want to know why she has trees coming out of her head, ha:) I took this photo of her on our last visit before she moved out of her home of 60 years. She was standing behind the storm door in her house coat bidding her farewells. I titled it Winter because it is the Winter of her life and the Winter of her time living at her home in Goreville, IL. The trees in the reflection and snippets of the property that you can see are very reminiscent and have a lot of meaning for me. Having said all that, painting portraits is not in my wheel house and I have a lot to learn. What I wouldn't have given to have Crystal Cook over my shoulder during this process.
I also have some great news. All 4 of my entries in to the Randy Higbee 6" Squared show have made the cut and are heading to Cal-i-forn-i-a. If only I could go with them:)) I'm ecstatic to be participating in this show for the 3rd time.
Hope you all have a fabulous Turkey Day (for all my US friends). For the rest of you, you just don't know what you're missing:)) I'll save you a plate, come on by!!!
