Harvey Walker . I also checked out his terrific studio (he made) not far from where I live, I highly recommend you do the same if in the area & invest in some original, affordable, lovely art for your walls. After I painted the outline of the driveway - I took a drive to the Country Bakery (NOM NOM NOM) & noticed a few RED trees already making me rush back home & get working on the painting before the leaves change- & then I'll paint it again!
I am not a realist painter.. I like to be inspired buy what's around obviously, I add my own 'perspective' .. my new hobby of rock stacking had to make it into the painting. The light on the driveway changed as the day progressed so I had photos on my iPad which I then worked with later in the evening. What a relaxing way to spend an evening- try it.
It's back to school today! Be safe kiddos - be AWAKE & aware drivers.
It's a beautiful crisp morning! I've already sketched my next painting - with my first coffee.
I'm reading a new book that has my creative side pondering ideas, I'll share soon - If you are female I would encourage you to get it & read it & buy one for a friend (I did), buy one for your daughter - if you have one. Can anyone guess the book? Send me an e mail with your guess & I'll give you an original if you answer correctly. ;)
I have NOT watched any news since I moved, nor have I read any- only snippets are seen on the phone when I check messages - no wifi- not often. HongKong is restless, Trump is still an asshole.. the rainforest is burning, Florida is about to be hit (please be safe Florida friends!) & the Bahamas is trying to recover... more people displaced and homeless.
Justin Trudeau is ready for the election & he will win.
I do watch & really enjoy: Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj
Please, take the time to watch 'Two sides of Canada'... imo Justin knows 'it's happening anyway'- because currently MONEY rules (sadly), I don't think he wants the pipeline any more than any of us who cares about our environment/country & I'm not naive enough (anymore) to know how ruthless these vultures can be to get their way - I don't want Justin Trudeau to become another Kennedy (shot Kennedy), I get what he is doing.
Conservatives do not care - oh, they do about: $$$, and control, private prisons, jail for cannabis = conservative.... & more. Lest we not forget SH- Harper-& look at Scheer, closely - just the sheer mention of his name sends chills up my spine..
Will you vote or just sit around and 'bad mouth'?
I will try to make a positive impact on our planet & vote for who I believe is the best for Canada... right now tho- I am about to go pick a bowl of Black Berries off my back deck to make pancakes for breakfast & give thanks for God/Universe for such another lovely day.
