Yesterday was hanging day for the 6th annual Monday Painters show at the Dundas Museum and Archives. It is hard to believe that I have been painting outside with this group for more than six years. It has been loads of fun and I have learned a lot from this very talented group. There are 42 paintings by 22 of my artist friends and in my mind it is a show well worth seeing. I won't be at the opening because it is the same weekend as the Beyond the Valley Studio tour but it is a chance to see some fantastic artwork and chat with some of the artists. They will be the ones with the name tags and they are all very friendly and approachable.
I am an artist who works almost exclusively from life. Either in front of a sitting model or outside at my easel or better yet sitting on a rock during a canoe trip.
