This painting is from last weeks chicken series I did, had to at least do a fluffy yellow chick after stopping at the Tractor Supply Store for bunny food and seeing hundreds of them for sale under a heat lamp....so cute. I didn't get a chance to paint yesterday, since I spent most of the day in Toledo for the last day of Artomatic 419....what a great show for meeting other artists and down to earth people. I've been to art shows where even as the artist I feel very outclassed by the attendees and it always made me a smidge uncomfortable, something to just accept I suppose. Today is my birthday and yesterday the Fedex truck pulled up with a birthday present of 2 live lobsters from Kennebunkport, Maine, where I visited last year with my wonderful boyfriend. I'm from the East coast (New Hampshire and Vermont) and I crave lobster all the time. There is nowhere in the midwest that does lobster justice, if it can be found, and no matter what the price. I have a feeling I know what my next painting might be.
