I spent the day at the local art exhibition today, which is a display day in honour of the lady who founded my local art and craft group. I didn’t get as much painting done today as I hoped, but it was still a fun day. Quilts, crafts, paintings and drawings /paintings by the kids in the children’s art classes were on display as well as for sale. I spent a fair bit of time catching up with the craft ladies who I hadn’t seen for a while as well as volunteering to prepare the quarterly newsletter for the group.
There was also a gymkhana on at the showground, but because of the windy weather not as many horses were shown – but I did get to take a few photos of some lovely horses. Also, had interest in a commission of a cat, a Russian Blue, so that will be great.
Here is the latest pic of progress of the greyhound.
The throat is pretty much done – it looks like the dog has fur now. Just need to do the same detail work on the head. And need to add some value/colour into the background to finish that off too.
I received some really lovely comments on the greyhound and on the pictures of some of my other paintings, which were nice to hear. Feedback is always welcome! 🙂
K. had a painting of Ernie from Sesame Street (her first still life) in the display and she has received an Encouragement Award for it – her first one!
