The Daily Paintings of Don Gray
Love that rusty red and the subtle light. Nice work, Don.
HI Don! This summer I suddenly realised I was slowing down to take pictures of COWS whenever I would see them. And here they are again - masterful, beautiful cows. The colours and treatments are so rich! You've made them into noble beasts with beautiful portraits. Always enjoying your work. All the best, Aliaena
Thanks, Steve. Few people will know why I find your comment so funny :^)
Thanks very much, Aliena. I appreciate your visit. I enjoyed reading your posts about the challenges of plein air painting--funny and so true.
I'm going to miss these cows when you moove on (sorry)..and... I will have to apologize to Aliana...her posts on her site had me in stitches of painful laughter, laced heavily with admiration. Her trials of the "ochre dirt" , wind, and hikers was a priceless post. Will be doing a plein air with my 11 YO student this week and I KNOW her post will haunt me LOLOLOL
Hi Micah--I guess I'll moove on when the moood strikes me :)I read Aliaena's post--yes, hilarious!
Hi Don and Micah. Thanks so much for mentioning my post re surviving all the challenges of plein air - all wrapped up into one two hour period. I'm glad it made you laugh. I laughed... later... after it was over. I had to mooove on a bit before I could get over it. No, really, I was laughing then too - after the second fly flew into my freshly blended paint - I figured something was up with the universe and I was going to have an unusaul day. Anyway, I was out-standing-in-a-field, as they say, with a bunch of cows. Am lovin'these cows, Don! All the best to both of you. Ali
Hi Ali--I'm sure your post really resonated with any artist who has tried outdoor painting. Murphy's Law seems to come down pretty hard on plein air artists sometimes. :^)Oh well, there's always tomorrow, right?
