Over the next few months I’m working on creating a series of paintings inspired by local landscapes scenes and details. I love where I live and I’m truly excited about focusing in on the Creston Valley area. After I’ve completed this collection it will actually be on sale and displayed at a sweet little cafe here in town here called ‘Break in Time‘. I’m super honoured that Break in Time asked me to display my work there and I promise I’ll take pictures when everything is up!
This piece here is inspired from a photo I took on a trip down to Kootenay Lake last summer. I saw these trees and couldn’t resist making my husband pull over. (I do that to him a lot… :D)
I am finding lately that study sketches help a great deal – particulalry because they get me more interested in and excited about painting. I kinda forgot part way through painting this one to take more progress pics… oops! So here’s a big jump to the finish line!
I find it interesting with this one that I didn’t focus right in on my rainbow bright but instead took a more green, yellow and blue subdued road. (Well, subdued for me that is.) ;)
Look forward to sharing more of this series with you as it develops. Happy weekend!!!
