This is a painting that has been in progress for about 2 years. Mostly just in my head though. I never really started it even though I had all the photos and had done my research. I just couldn't paint him at the time. Can't really say except I wasn't painting much of anything for a while. Just too bogged down by reality I guess. But I started cleaning up my studio and found the pics and somehow I just knew the time was right. The painting flowed so easily.
This is Hercules. He belonged to a friend who I have never met except through email. We have bunnies in common. Here's to you Leslie.
Yesterday the PAAC group met in historic, downtown Morrison, CO. It was really a fabulous morning although the wind got to be a bit wild. Several people painted under the pink trees (don't know what kind they are) and painted the pink house! It was a lovely spot, but I went for a shadow and light painting of backlit cottonwoods and a local restaurant (Beso de Arte). The trees were just starting to get some buds here and there while others are still bare.
I live in a heavenly little place in the mountains of Colorado with my husband, two dogs and two bunnies. My favorite times are spent making art, enjoying mountain life and having fun with my honey and friends.
