Last Friday when I went out to set up for the art show and sale at Agar's Corner I realized I was short one painting for my portable wall which holds thirty. My solution? Stay up until 1:30 a.m. and get one done! This is the little prairie I came up with and I quite like it. It's a bit of a departure from the colours of the other grassland paintings and I like the movement that takes your eye back to the distance. Because I painted it the night before the show, it was still wet when I was packing up in the morning. I decided that I better get a quick photo on the off chance it sold, so outside I rushed and, you guessed it, I dropped it face down in the grass. Luckily I was able to fix it without too much trouble.

Nicki said...

Yup, and it was a bit of a panic, but it all worked out okay.
