Yesterday I participated in a 'paint in', a fundraiser for the fight against the mega quarry proposed for this beautiful and bountiful farmland just north of Shelburne Ontario. There was a big turnout from artists and the general public in support of the fight.
We had a choice of various spots for painting: a horse ranch, ponds at the Unicamp, views of farms and chance to see bobolinks, and another a wide panoramic long distance view. I did a watercolour of the panoramic scene and, at the close of the event, returned to my studio to start a sculpture of a horse. This one will be in porcelain. What a great day.
