It's overcast today but who cares... It's a holiday for most and that is reason enough to celebrate- never mind Canada is 149 years old baby! Next year 150!! They already have started to plan celebrations for that one! Maybe I'll paint something special!
This is a painting I did on Monday when My friend Bon was visiting!
Clearly I am fascinate with this blue chicken! They really exist! When we started, I had a blank canvas and just painted - I didn't sketch it I just went right to canvas! Not even a clue of that I was painting really, the cock & fox appeared. The fox, a slight smirk is NOT going to eat the cock. They are friends.
When Bonnie visits we talk about Art, being artist, time, life, events, chickens.. Bon lives on a farm and paints usually what is reflected in her life- she recently sold several BIG paintings to a gentleman who runs a CoffeeTime store! That is fantastic - many will see her work! Check it out- She is inspiring me to paint BIG- but I have to prep a bit for that- like buy OUTdoor paint, it would be too costly with my acrylic.
What will you do this Canada day? First, I'm off to our favourite coffee shop for a carrot cupcake and ginger cookie! If you wear something Canadian you get a discount today!
Local & Imort if you do not know it.. so nice to have a tiny, personal, comfortable, fun coffee shop in town - that also have great baked goods and such. other than that it's the B.B.Q and painting outback today. Happy Canada Day - I hope you have a fun peaceful day what ever you choose to do.
