I am planning out the paintings that I will coach people through in my paint-and-wine classes for the rest of the year (I try to plan ahead so that when last minute stuff happens, I have time for it….). As I didn’t want to always present skyscapes and waterscapes, I turned to my fellow bloggers for a little inspiration and soon found it.
Victor Rakmil is a photographer who, like me, is apparently a birdaholic. I was utterly taken by the fifth photo on this blog entry and he gave me permission to use it as a basis for one of my class paintings. Here’s ‘Merganser Parade’, planned for October at the Vanguard Gallery in Moreno Valley.
