I spent the greater part of the day dropping off 2 paintings (a small Clamscape and my Lobsta!) at the Duxbury Art Association Mid Summer Show. They also feature at this time a 'clean-out' studio sale - so 20 of my Daily Paintings will be there at a GREATLY reduced price ;).
When Paco and I got to the studio I only had time to work on this painting of the cows down the road that I started ONE YEAR ago, on location. Yes. On location. I simply stood with a bull horn and asked all the cows to please FREEZE for 2 hours. "No problem." they said. At least that's what I think they said. You could ask Paula Villanova, as she and Jody Regan were with me that day. I really got most of it done there, seriously. I was quick-sketching those bovines as they waded. I put my mind on autopilot and just entered the zone. Nice hostess.. I am... I hardly was gracious or chatty that afternoon. We had a swell time anyway. Just tidying up a bit and fixing one cow's frightening eye today... for the Sakonnet Arts Network Farm show in the Tiverton Town Hall this month. LOTS going on these days! ETA: This is a 20x20 painting in oil.
