Occasionally we just need a break! I took a little reprieve from my large commission piece this week/weekend. I find that sometimes a small rest away from a piece can give me time to think, plan and then feel refreshed when I return to it again.
In the meantime I picked up a small 11″ x 14″ canvas I had and had fun revisiting this scene that I sketched a couple months ago. The drawing and the painting are inspired by my friend, Cheryl Jagger’s photo of a scene from Kootenay Lake. I love this lake, it is one of the reasons we live where we do!
Hmmm… now what would have been even more of a restful than painting this would have been to actually head out to the lake mug in hand! 😉
