In October I was having fun with Inktober drawings. That’s a fun challenge,
and it kept me thinking about art. Last night we had our first snowfall. To
me seems a bit early. I think in my whole life I remember one snowfall that early
in Toronto. But the snow made the transition from October rather dramatic.
So now I want to move from Inktober into November, and try out some bright,
colourful paintings in whatever way the mood hits me.
Today I started this small abstract landscape using a palette knife.
It was a lot of fun, and a complete contrast to line drawing.
If you live in Canada it’s time to find your warm clothes. And let’s enjoy the
transition. I went for a long, beautiful walk tonight with Steven. It was very
energizing being out in the freezing cold.
