Was I in any real danger?

We had a good day at Stoneheart. My friends Vicki and Jim and Clay and Barbara dropped in to see the goings on. We painted for about 4 1/2 hours and this is the result. I say “we” because it was a collaborative effort. We had a long afternoon discussion (lively) about this painting as it took shape. We discussed things like where to put a particular shade of violet or what was going to happen to my fingers if I kept messing around in certain areas. We all eventually saw the moose and though the rabbit has been painted out it is not forgotten. Thank Vicki for that nice cool hue along the top of the roof and the violet in the shadows just to the left of the house and thanks goes to Jim for finding the moose. Mark (gallery owner) is to be commended for his wonderful  imagining of the beautiful lady in the house. All in all it took a bunch of us to get this painting done. Thanks for the help guys, I couldn’t have done it alone. 🙂  To be sure though, all kiddin aside, this painting would not be as nice a piece if my friends hadn’t been there to lend a hand and threaten me from time to time as they did. I had fun.

I met a lot of nice people in the mean time.  Daniel Voigt and his family came by.  Daniel is one of my fellow artists in the gallery. He does large abstract pieces <—— that are totally wonderful.  Andree Hudson was in for a while too.  She paints WOW! Take a look. Her painting,

Blue Fire” <——  is awesome.

Next week begins the Estes Park Plein Air Competition. It’ll be busy busy after that. Keep your fingers crossed, I haven’t been out much to paint and I’m rusty. I’ll keep ya posted.
