A New Painting Idea

Hi Everyone, Firstly TGIF! I can't believe how fast this week zoomed by. I am happy its over and that January is coming to an end! This month has been so long and and I cant wait to see February arrive and the Spring too actually. But I got a long wait ... Lets hope the groundhog doesnt see his shadow..LOL

I worked on some sketches yesterday and will begin my new painting. It will be a scene of white water lillies. I love water lillies and the lovely green pads that float on the water.

Here is my sketch done quickly in wax. The panting will be done in acrylics and be painted on a gallery wrapped canvas measuring 40 x 50 cm (thats 16" x 20").

Hi All, I havent been very active these days. We are having a deep freeze in Ottawa. Was -28 the last two days and with the wind it felt like -39. And of all the days, my furance broke down two days in a row. It is being repaired again this afternoon as I type this entry. Hopefully, its up and running soon again.......
