Rainy days are great for staying in and painting. Thankfully, I was off today and able to do just that. I even got to take a nap.
This piece was fun to work on. I was thinking about that day that Nella and I went on our tree planting adventure. I started with a paint brush, but decided to do more of a palette knife application when I was working on the hills. I actually don't have palette knives. Those things are expensive! So instead I used the little plastic shovel looking spoons you get when you have gelato. This was practice for a piece I have lodged in my brain. I just need to see it more clearly before I try to get it out for every one else to see.
I had an awesome time at the Guam Art Exhibit, GAX, but I didn't get a ton of pictures. It was pretty packed and I was wine-ing it up and enjoying the great company and art. I did find this video on You Tube though.
