Growing Pains

I don't draw much on my board before I start to paint. I probably should draw more, it would mean less correcting later on. I love starting paintings, and I quite like finishing them, it's just the middle part I struggle with. Here are the first few images of my "Sharing the View" painting.

Sharing the View 2012

Sharing the View 2012

I have been lucky enough to be chosen as a participating artist in CBC Radio's fundraising event for FeedNova Scotia. Twelve maritime artists will donate their work for sale and for publication in a calendar. The event rounds up in December, but my deadline to finish the painting is September.

I do have a few guidelines to meet. The painting should relate to the morning; "Information Morning" is our CBC morning show, and Holly and I wake up to it every weekday. The second guideline I have is to do a painting that is appropriate for one of the winter months (I am not sure which month). I am about to start painting but first I have to get the board (18x24in.) ready. I will probably start painting tonight. I will try to post pictures as the painting progresses.
