Just to show you what I am working on - another horse for the western showcase - Calgary Stampede/western in smittys

I forgot to mention how painful it is for me to paint in acrylics, hm not my favorite medium at all but I am needing to get some done, the oils may not be dry in time to show. So I will work hard on producing acrylic paintings for the next few days.

Plein Air at Big Hill Springs Provincial Park

Finished the first painting entirely while creating an army of mosquitoes, began painting at noon and decided at 3 it was time to go but Sharon Williams convinced me to start another quick one, so I put on some long pants and a raincoat and we stayed until 7:30 pm

How does it work? Well For 20 bucks you can buy yourself a lunch and take home the bowl you eat it from. Get to Nose Creek park early to choose your bowl while selection is plentiful, enjoy the wonderful food prepared by restaurants such as Smitty's and feel good about helping the Airdrie Food Bank. Don't miss this wonderful day of activities planned for everyone. I will be set up in a little space and would love to meet with you.
