Happy long weekend everyone!! For those readers new to this blog, Sundays I take the day off and post a larger piece previously painted, most often from my website (www.kimrempel.com). Today it is Feminine Plane. This was painted at Mount Mary in Ancaster and has been in an exhibit at the Fieldcote Museum all summer. I did this piece in March. The snow was melting and the ground beginning to thaw. The air was still chilly and damp but I wasn't dealing with a freezing arse and numb fingers. Ah, memories of painting in winter ; ) Anyway, there was a reverent feeling on the grounds and it was quite a mystical place to paint. I was traipsing over the grounds, looking for the moment when something would hit me, and then spied on the top of a hill a wonderful ring of plane trees. Wow! When I got up close there was one in particular that gave me a jolt. It was reminiscent of a dancing woman - skirt flowing in a twirl. Graceful and lovely.
