September offered us the opportunity to take a short break with some actual time AWAY. It was timed well enough that we were still able to have our meals out, outdoors. Evenings were chilly but those infrared heaters kept us toasty warm. Now I am reflecting on where we were (Prince Edward County) and what we saw. For artists we always look at places we visited and immediately think... "how can I make this into a painting?"
Now that we are home again I'm working my way through my photos and memories of this time away. Hmmm, which images or feelings will make their way into my October work?
I am preoccupied by the intuitive journey that paint takes me on with its colour and texture when working with layers that can be revealed through scratching back, rubbing away or lifting, to bring back the history of the previous layers.
