Just spent a couple of glorious days painting the model from life with my fabulous artist friends: Liz Wiltzen, Sarah Kidner, Gaye Adams and Jean Pederson in Sarah's beautiful studio, nestled in Canmore, Alberta.
Jean and I drove from Calgary (45 minutes) and Gaye was visiting from Sorrento, B.C for the week. Unfortunately, snow, fog and icy road conditions at home made it impossible for us to join the group until the last two days of the week. Hard to believe considering we found the mountain town was enjoying spring like conditions.
These women are truly inspirational and I'm so happy to call them my friends. It really doesn't get any better than this.
I've posted my painting from our 3 hour session on the last day, above. The first day was a wiper. Such is life ;)
