work in progress

A tres messy corner. I was working on this painting at the Seaport Market on Sunday. One of the pieces for my show in St. Andrews New Brunswick this July. Starting early because I have a lot to do! I have to say it was quite the experience painting with an audience. Made me feel very self conscious and embarrassed. Like sitting there with no clothes on. I soldiered away because I really have to get the work done and don’t want to waste the time I’ve got there.

At one point, two little girls pulled up chairs and sat behind me eating their snacks and staring at me while I worked. Ever feel like you’re being really closely watched? I did have some cute conversations with little ones, lots of questions, like: What’s the cat’s name? Is it a boy or girl? Is the bird it’s friend? Can you paint horses? Adults would usually ask what kind of paint I was using……acrylic:) Will post a pic of finished work soon.
