Today’s painting is one from more than a few years ago. It combines a number of elements I’m still interested in. There’s a bit of maritime landscape, some family heirlooms, and an object with a bit of sheen.
I grew up in a rural part of Canada. There were no artists as such in my family and no art galleries nearby. My earliest introduction to art came via Walt Disney and the world of comics. They were a magical window for me and I dreamed of being able to do what they did. So comics and the artists that created them were a gift to me. Today’s painting “Comic Present” shows what that gift might look like, if it was literal.
I’m working on another gift image. This one is a little less box-like.
Today’s painting is of another present I wrapped myself. It’s still in the early stages, the oil paintings take a little longer than the watercolours.
Today’s painting is of a couple of marbles (Venus and Mars).
I have to admit I’m not all that great at wrapping presents. You can see it’s true from today’s painting “I Wrapped it Myself”. It is always good to remember that it’s the thought that counts.
Today’s painting is still on the easel. I’ve done a first pass and will give it a few more as I move it towards completion.
