I guess I took an unintentional hiatus from the blog. I have been painting a bit, but with two large paintings on the go and nothing finished, there was nothing to post. Plus with the kids out of school this week I got my days mixed up and forgot yesterday was Thursday, so no TBT post. Anyway, I finally went to the studio for about one hour last night which felt great! "Mossy Bank" was dry enough to transport home to photograph and I actually took some time to work on the other large painting- a colourful prairie. It very well may be done now, too. I will look at it with fresh eyes this weekend and make the call.
Speaking of this weekend, I am excited for Sunday! I have to drive to Prince Albert to pick up the paintings from The Mann Art Gallery since the Winter Festival show is now done. I think I am going to go early and drive all the way to Waskesiu for a photo excursion. I am not sure yet if I will try to paint en plein air, but it is a possibility. It will depend on time. Road trip! Yay!
