August 9th-12th I took a watercolor workshop in N.S. at Sherbrooke Village which is a village restored like a museum of the 1800's.The worksop was given by Susan Patterson CSPW. Since we were scattered over the village there was not alot of one on one but I found some of her demos wonderful and I enjoyed it.When I first arrived at the house were we stayed there were several crows on this fence and I found the scene very peaceful. This scene was right outside the house where I stayed.
The house had actually belonged to Susan's grandmother before the government took it over as a heritage site.
This week was also a very stressful time for me as I was experiencing the death of a friendship for reasons I could not understand.
I guess the lone crow represents myselfand the fact that being an artist is really a solitary experience that can only be shared when the work is completed.
It was good to be pushed again to paint outside away from photos and my confort zone.
