"Morning Shave" ..chuckwagon series I..western
It's been my privilege to attend a unique competition in the Western culture lately...Chuckwagon cookouts. One of my students is a Grand Champion in this area. I visited his wagon last Saturday & came up with some very interesting photos. This set-up is one of the aspects of judging his wagon outfit. Period clothing is also important, as well as camp site layout for the wagon & the equipment. I chose to paint this in watercolor to reflect the vibrant colors of the wagon.
I'm on a journey ...one which involves keen observation, traveling, listening to the inner muse, painting the beauty of God's creation!
The smell of oils, the challenge of new ideas, delicately balancing all I have learned in the process--spells adventure and another moment of learning.
Come with me; share the journey...
