Paintings 6, 7 and 8

Three weeks up in Killarney Provincial Park. Painting with families and teaching the artist's hike was great.

It was challenging to paint these en plen air paintings without the use of photos. It made me work harder because the painting had to be finished at the end of the day.

The last painting, the one on the far right, had to be reworked as a result of a three hour thunder storm. It blew over when the paint was still tacky and I had to rework it. I like it better now that it has this history of a natural occurrence to it. After all, we all have a life span and so does artwork.
