I’m very excited to be part of an exhibition of Wee Art at Round Hill Studio in Annapolis Royal during December 2017.
The criteria was to work no larger than 6″x6″ in any medium we chose. Of course, I chose watercolours and decided to use what I found on our shoreline to explore the idea of transformation.
The first is the slow transformation of rock to sand. Then I found an empty shell on the beach and felt that was also a transformation.
Finally, I chose the universal symbol of transformation – butterflies. However, I was stuck after that and almost decided to be satisfied with just three paintings.
Then the dog and I went for a walk by the lighthouse. On the cliffs, I discovered a pile of feathers being blown about by the wind. I gathered a few and brought them back to my studio. When I set them on my table, I realized I had my fourth painting – the final transformation we all experience one day. Last flight.
I’ve never worked this small before and found it very gratifying because I completed all four paintings in a relatively short period of time. Even more gratifying, all four were accepted for the show.
If you have an opportunity to stop in to Round Hill Studio. Tell them I sent you.
