Today's themed art trail is 'Into the Woods'. Lots of birds and other animals in the video today! https://youtu.be/7HQHQeiW9Qs
'Camping in the Trees' 12" x 12" Oil on canvas panel
In keeping with today's theme here is a painting I did before lockdown based on a photograph from our last overseas holiday in Croatia. How I'd love to be there again amongst the trees, shaded from the hot summer sun. Instead I'm looking out of the window into grey skies and wondering if it is going to stay dry long enough for me to finish edging my lawn and weeding the borders.
I should have realised an open studio event involves more than framing and hanging paintings, especially when it is being held in your own home. Still, it is a good excuse to finally be sorting the garden out after a couple of years of neglect whilst the house was renovated. At least the house doesn't need much work to make it presentable!
Just 6 days now before I open so the show is coming together. Paintings have been varnished and labelled, and greeting cards ordered. A lot of the paintings are now framed though I am still waiting for a few frames to arrive - hopefully before Friday!
I have a COVID risk assessment in place and have ordered some spare facemasks in case people forget to bring one, though it feels weird not having one on these days!
Hope you are having a chilled weekend, I'm off outside to brave the elements x
