So what will I follow up with for next year's show?! I have about 10 great ideas from which to choose, after watching the events again this week. I envision the composition in my mind, to edit the subjects. So far they're all going to be painted, but the one that will go in the show is yet to be seen. I better get painting first!!!

|Creek Crossing, 12 x 24|
We spent a week in Calgary, in July, and when we came back the gardens and lawns were dry & dormant. So sad to see, and it's still like that now. This has not been the good plein air season I'd been hoping for! So, I've done a few pieces indoors, inspired by our western trip.
I went on a beautiful ride, through fields, across creeks, up and down hills. We saw these 2 spectators, and I thought how lucky they were to be there, to see what they saw, every day!

|360 View, 12 x 24|
I'll work at being more regular here! I have a few more ideas from the trip to get on canvases... sometimes life just gets in the way. I take it (painting) as it comes... no pressure, no expectation, it will happen when it's meant to.

|Waiting patiently with a handler. The tenderness of their connection really caught my attention.|
