I am so excited to be working on this book but painting for me is really hard right now. I am not used to sitting while painting so I am finding it frustrating. Oh well.
It is poppy season now. I make a poppy painting every year. I am a sucker for all those veterans who sell them and I am incapable of walking by without giving a few dollars. So each of my jackets has a poppy. One soldier I was talking to said this year the poppies are being bought up. All of us are distraught over the events in Montreal and Ottawa where soldiers were murdered. Just buying a poppy doesn't seem enough.
That is it for chapter 3. The book is full of beautiful paintings and I am wasting a lot of time looking at all the artist's websites. Tomorrow is chapter 4 on values.
