One thing I dig the most about my city is that I live so close to several beaches. In the nice weather, I head down to the water after work hours to work on a painting. Last night I worked on two - I'm getting close to finishing the flamingo piece below (I love this subject, it's the second time I've done a piece about one. I don't know if its the colours, or the shapes in the face, but its so much fun!) and I'm starting a slightly larger parrot piece (24" x 24"). Both of these are going to be ready for my next show, which is in just a couple of weeks at Ambelside Park here in Vancouver (Harmony Arts Festival).
