Today was "bring-your-kid-to-work day." Amy came over to spend a couple of hours of fun with me in the studio. The truth is I didn't know what to expect (was she going to just watch me paint the whole time?). . . so I was thrilled when she brought her own little canvas and was prepared to paint alongside me.
Except for a few moments where I showed Amy some technique tips and how to mix some different colours, she did her own thing. This came very naturally to her. I love this little painting she did!
I live in Southern Ontario on a farm with my husband, Dennis, and our two daughters. Painting out of my studio on our farm allows me to stay close to my family and to be surrounded by the natural landscape that continues to influence my work.
