It is almost a month since I posted the sketch of this painting here on my blog. At the time, I could hardly wait to get in the studio and start painting! That all changed when I received a phone call that my mom was in the hospital with the flu and would need care when she was released. Could I help? Of course! I packed my bag and headed for bone chilling Edmonton, AB. After spending a few weeks helping mom get back on her feet, I am now home and eager to get back into the studio!
I spent the first part of the week packing and mailing off several notecard orders. After catching up on a few other tasks, I was finally able to get into the studio yesterday and start on this painting. I've started by dropping in color everywhere except the lace tablecloth. At the moment, it doesn't look like much, I hope that will change as I add more colour!
I see so many exciting images of paintings in-progress on my blog side bar. I will try to catch up with many of you over the next few days. Always exciting to see what each artist is working on. I have missed my "blog chats" with so many of you!
Have a wonderful weekend!
