Two days, four paintings!
This past Thanksgiving weekend, I visited Val David, Quebec, with artist Cleah Bunting.
There, we painted the last of the autumn colours, outdoors, with fingerless gloves and winter boots to fight the cold.
It was my first time painting outside, and I loved it. Painting out of doors is unpredictable. The paint dries faster, insects get stuck when they land on your artwork and passersby offer their opinions (sometimes, even in American Sign Language! I’m fairly sure he told me to continue painting, but something may have gotten lost in translation.)
