ART THROUGH THE AGES INTERGENERATIONAL EXHIBITION - GOLDFINCH GOES TO THE ORCHARD



A collaborative painting by mother and daughter, Charlotte and Sea Dean
12” x 12” Canvas Panel
Professional Acrylic, medium. UV protection To view or purchase this painting please visit ART THROUGH THE AGES EXHIBITION Lake Country Art Gallery, Lake Country, BC Canada, or online at Daily Paintworks. Part of the proceeds to LACG public gallery.

For some time Charlotte has hinting that I add movement to the foreground of my paintings in the form of animals or people. Birds are a common theme.
 

In “GOLDFINCH GOES TO THE ORCHARD” I added an American Goldfinch to this beautiful weeping cherry. The result is a much more lively painting than I would have achieved by painting the blossom alone. It has added interest and curiosity.


STOP PRESS! For locals, the exhibition is already on view at Lake Country Art Gallery, but the OPENING with goodies and social activities is Saturday 1pm - 3pm.
