So much rain has fallen on my Island in the past two days that I've been able to ignore the garden and get back into my studio. Below are a couple of things I've been working on. The first is a pastel in my Moleskine. This little guy was so cute I had to paint him and some others onto four 6"X6" canvases. Each of these canvases will have found wood attached on three sides to make it look as if the rabbits are in rabbit hutches. I'll post pictures on my Lazy Monday post.
This second piece has changed a lot since I took the photo (the ears are shorter and thicker, the right leg more in proportion to the size of the body) but I wanted you to see this one at different stages. This is painted on a wooden cradle board which allows me to be pretty rough with it including sanding it back every so often! Oh I love being a painter!
All of these paintings will be available at the Nanaimo Summer Artwalk 2012 on June 23 & 24. My studio will be open from 11am-5pm both days. I'm looking forward to talking to everyone and meeting new art lovers.
