Post Workshop Line-up

I took a number of paintings in progress with me to Deborah Paris' workshop to work on and also took along some blank linen panels just in case. I used those panels to start several more of my Northern Lakes/ Canoe paintings. I'm still intrigued by those images in part because I walk around the lake several days a week. I love to see the canoes in the water, and I love to depict them at dusk. The lake is always changing. I'm increasingly interested in the way we see lakes - often through a screen of trees and branches that we edit out.

The paintings in progress I took with me were mostly the images I've been working with of the more arid part of Washington. The one on the lower left, of fog and eroded hills, is one of my current favorites. As you can see I lined up all of them, fresh out of their travel box, on my drying shelves to take stock. Including the one of the canoe in yesterday's post, there are 11.

Actually the truth is there were 12. There's one which will never again see the light of day. It's already covered in a fresh application of Gamblin's very white oil ground. That happens.

Lisa, these are fantastic, love what you're doing. And as a grouping, wow! Looking forward to your exhibit. I keep referring to it as milepost 6 (must be the road association).

Thank you, both of you! I think it will be a good show and the ones on the shelf are getting finished. Yay!
