The Glamourous Life - Nova Scotia

today's foggy seascape...
We got up early and trotted off down the street to the Hubbard's Barn farmer's market because I was going to surprise Anna The Hat Junkie.
The surprise was for me. She wasn't there today. But the market is charming... of course. Everything is.

SEE? a cove.

We went off to the neighbour's house on the ocean... this is the view from the deck.

The lighthouse at Peggy's Cove. The clouds were fabulous in the background der eh?

The first day we were here, we went to the beach for the was really warm and sunny. Then there is mist, rain, fog, sun... neato.

The dinners so far... mackeral, haddock, cod, mussels... home by the sea.

Halifax and the lobster feast is up for tomorrow!

The Glamourous Life - Grumbacher Paints All the Classes.

Teaching classes is really quite as good as taking them. Seascape.. vertical and horizontal lines of interest...
Still Life
Painting sideways and upside down so the technique and brushstokes are visible to the students. I will incorporate this into the other paintings as a new technique!

The Saskatchewan Landscape. Focal point, Color mixing and the palette knife.
Still Life II
Texture and negative space... the silver teapot and a patterny tea cup.

Floral petals on flowers, ceramic pots..
