For day Four of the Seven Day Challenge I've been invited to
take part in by the amazing sculptor, Gabrielle Fischer Horvath,
I choose one of my favourite paintings. So much of what I paint
is energized by love, the love of what I see, of who I talk to,
of who I'm painting for. This painting was created to celebrate
a nature reserve in the Netherlands, and was in an exhibition called
Kunst in Drimmelin to to honour that area in Drimmelin -- the Worp
I was invited to join the show by my friend the wonderful artist,
Miranda Brouwers. I shipped the painting rolled up and she and
her friends there restretched it for me. It came home and sold!
Miranda sent me many, many photos of this area for reference,
and wanted my blue sky and clouds in the painting. I am eternally
grateful to her for getting me into that wonderful exhibition.
Have an enjoying loving your art day.
This is sooooo beautiful. What a lovely, soothing scene and how nice it would be to live with that painting.
I do hope the woman who bought it is loving it. I love how it turned out, and
I think it was because of the inspiration offered by Miranda Brouwers -- one of the
kindest people, and most incredible artists I know. You are another one of
the kindest people I know, and an astounding artist.
