In my quest to find my painting 'style' I am trying to make this most recent painting more impressionist in style. It is NOT COMPLETED YET and I am still working on the foreground and sky area. I chose a lighter palette and trying to do more brushy strokes of paint. I find I am needing feedback and will try to get a critique from the FCA (Federation of Canadian Artists), of which I am a member, and who provide a monthly critique session.
On the weekend my spouse and I had a nice afternoon checking out galleries here in the city. We were just looking but the The Front Gallery had a one person show of Kari Duke's work, which I have long admired. So... our tradition is that instead of buying Anniversary gifts for each other we buy a piece of art every couple of years - we bought this one below - cause we both really like her style and these back alleys are pretty iconic I am sure I have walked down a few while living near the University in the 'ol days.
