a painting in the life of
See what came through my mail slot today? (Click to enlarge and/or read.) 'A Painting in the life of...' is a regular back cover feature of the Federation of Canadian Artists' bi-monthly Art Avenue mag- azine. I was thrilled when FCA president Dianna Ponting contacted me to write an article about my process as I have so much fun photographing my work as it develops. However most of my 'in process' photos (like the ones illustrated here) were taken on the easel in my studio at an oblique angle. D'oh! But Dianna waved her magic wand (aka Photoshop) and made square-facing, perfectly-cropped images. I must learn how to do that!
