It's that time of year again...Empty Bowls the annual Food Bank fundraiser. I always enjoy the afternoon of bowl painting as I don't always get to spend time with all the people I enjoy so much, the big bonus is that it's for such a terrific cause.
Over the years I've painted chairs, canoes, birch trees and this year I'm planning on lilies. When I lived in Saskatchewan I created a series of mixed media lily and gold leaf paintings that all sold very quickly. I was blessed to live near wonderful neighbors, one who invited the girls and I for iced tea and an afternoon visit to her lily garden. It was a great place to sketch and photograph these beauties for inspiration.
This year I will be hosting the reveal of this year's AIRdirondack Art Project at the Empty Bowls Festival in Nose Creek Park on June 21 and I cannot wait to see all the fabulous new chair art! This is our fifth AIRdirondack project and it just keeps getting better each year.
