With Time to Spare!


Well, okay, so I settled for just a quick study in oil on canvas, using a very limited palette of Burnt Umber, Ultramarine Blue and Unbleached Titanium, but I got *something* done for the pARTy, and well, I painted for the first time in a week in a half, which was good. Also put 180 bales of hay in the barn, got straw, did my usual quota of stalls...and so on, and so on...

I had to come back to edit this post to add, thanks to Kim Santini for the reference image this time around! Here we make sure all the pARTy participants acknowledge our photographer, and I go and forget!! :-P

I also took some pics of the 'kids.' Just one for now - remember little Leo? Well our boy is almost five months old now. Vroooom! I'll try and post some more in the next few days. For now, I'm off to carry on with the rest of what I need to get done before I sleep!!

Your limited pallette made a quiet, subtle and very beautiful painting, and of course your talent :) Lindax

I love your painting and the pic of 'Little Leo' is such fun! How do you find time for painting with all the work you have to do around there? Glad that you do, though!!
