Almost Done, Memories Of Chester
Chester Anderson was the guy who introduced me to both the Dorchester Artist's Network, and to Port Stanley Artists Guild, he had a profound influence on me that you can read about here. After his recent funeral I went back to a few of the places we had both painted and did some sketching, this is the result of one of those sketches. It's not quite done, it's given me a bit of a hard time, kind of like Chester himself, lol, but it's a whisper away from finished.
What makes this especially poignant, is that the centuries old maple in my painting has fallen over in the ensuing weeks, another fallen giant.
On a cheerier note I've had a successful run at the Westland Square Foot Show, Antler River Spring, and Mow Lines have both found new homes, and the show's not over until Aug 9th, so if you get a chance get to Wortley Village and see the show. Don's Dang Hill is still there,
it would be nice to have it find a home too. Thank you Westland.
Sumac Lace #3 has also found a new home, thank you Art Emporium.
This month I have submissions to make to both St Thomas Elgin Public Art Center (STEPAC), and Art With Panache in London. Chester will be going to London and Where The Road Dips will go to ST Thomas.
Also on the easel -I work on a couple of paintings at once, drying time being what it is-
sketches transferred to terraskin, and Plein Aire initial sketches.
