Summertime / 20x20" / acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas
I'm really excited about the way this body of work for the Toronto Outdoor Art Expo (July 14-16) is shaping up. The paintings are loosely based on memories of summer evenings at my Grandmother's house.
The top painting is "Porch Swing." While she didn't have a porch swing per se, she had a garden glider swing where the seats faced each other. I loved it! Gliding back and forth, taking in the evening. A time to think about the day or chat with my cousins :)
The bottom painting is "Summertime." My grandma had raspberry, gooseberry and current bushes. After supper we were often told to go pick a bowl of raspberries and then we ate them with sugar and cream. Mmm. The life.
Summertime, and the livin' is easy...
