As an artist, there are times that I choose my subject matter because it’s a dramatic scene, like a sunset or sunrise. Other times I choose my subject because it’s a particular face or lighting that strikes me as unique or stirring. Sometimes I just capture a singular image or an item that helps me remember fondly a visit or a moment in time that warms my heart and makes me smile.
This afternoon I’m wrapping up my weekend with a little time at the easel and remembering a lovely visit from a couple of years ago. It was a relaxing and enjoyable August evening. I hope you enjoy today’s painting, memories of that evening that I will entitle, Porky, in honor of this lovely little free range chicken and the dear folks who cared for her.
