A Moment in Paradise

A Moment in Paradise
oil
18x24"

         As I have mentioned in a previous post, I was inspired to try oils while on my trip to Mt. Washington. This past week I decided to paint a larger image of the area in oil. This is a view of the lake in Paradise Meadows. This piece will be on display November 7 at the Federation of Canadian Artists's Paint By Numbers Fundraiser. The Paint By Numbers event is an exciting evening of artists and patrons trying to grab the painting of their choice. Each patron has a number and is randomly called to choose a painting off the wall. It is slightly nerve-racking for the artist though. One hopes that their piece is not chosen last!
