You just never know

You just never know what you're going to paint on. Before it was life size horses for the Horse Fever project. Then it was a giant aluminum butterfly for Kaleidoscope. Now it's a hubcap? Artists work on all sorts of canvases, this is just another one. This is for a new art project "Landfillart is an international effort encompassing one-thousand-forty-one (1,041) artists to claim a piece of rusted metal garbage and create fine art." See what they're all about and see some of the completed hubcaps - cool! I got my hubcap in the mail yesterday so next step is to prep and prime. I'll keep you posted on the progress.

And here we have a painting on paper! Back to a little more traditional art form. This is another oil pastel landscape that I just listed on Etsy. It's a scene from northern California, the Trinity River near my Uncle's house. I love it up there, what beautiful country! I've lost count on how many times I've painted this same scene and the piece looks a little different each time. Sometimes there's a place that just speaks to you. This is one of those places for me. Each time I paint it I go back there and visit for a little while.
Have a wonderful Friday

A hubcap in the mail? Now that is different. LOL Such a lovely scene in your oil pastel. I love my favourite places too. Revisiting them is such a pleasure.

I know, isn't it fun? I like projects like this.
Thanks for the kind words on the oil pastel.
Have a great day!
