hi there!  i’ve been whooping up some new colours and using up some old paints!  getting ready you see, for the upcoming weekend event in the town of Kagawong!  so here are a few examples:

i had some Hansa Orange, made in Toronto by Stevensons!  i’ve been carrying that 1.125 litre jug for years!  it ran bone dry on this series of sketches.  here is another:

it worked out!  i slipped a lot of white in there but i also slipped a spot of ultramarine blue and came up with the above colour scheme.  which of course i like very much!  (i might keep that one!)

there is a bit more of that ultramarine blue!  that jug too, i’d been carrying since 2005 and last night it went into the outbox!  its gone!  used up!

i’ll tell you the truth.  this is only the 2nd horse i’ve painted so i have a long way to go in getting the details the way we’d love to see them.  but i’ll keep on it, and i’ll share with you too, when they are finished and warming up to the idea of me on the brush.

but most of these will be going with quite a few other new ones, to the Enchanted Forest Mystical Fair, at Kagawong, Manitoulin Island.  great place for a Saturday afternoon and i hope to see you!

and here it is:  already july 22nd…  i better get busy with making more of the most of our day!
