This is one of the paintings on display at Riverbend Library until March 30th. It was done in a series of 30 paintings in 30 days in January. My focus was in adding figures to my landscapes and snow in the hopes that it would endear me to it. The collage was produced at the end of the project in software Leslie Saeta introduced us to called Picmonkey. Two of this series will be showing in the Transitions show at the Federation Gallery next month in Vancouver.
It's been a long winter and this plein air artist has been finding it difficult getting inspired to paint. I decided to have some fun painting small, quick studies of children. You will notice they're all summer themes:)
The Alberta Oil Painters are a serendipitous group of fourteen artists, some of whom have painted together for over a decade. They each have a diverse take on their subject matter with work ranging from impressionist to traditional to contemporary.
