"After School"

I've been inspired lately by so many fine Quebec artists it is hard to remember them all. I do spend far too much time on the internet though scouring art galleries and artists web sites. I find it encouraging as well as inspiring seeing what everyone is up to. Recently i've toured England
(via the computer of course) and the wonderful art work one can find there. It is all just so lovely.
This piece was a departure for me in a way. I wanted it to be less labor intensive than the others i do and somehow a little looser. So this is as loose as i could get. Hopefully i can loosen up even more as this was just such a delight to pull off. I'm trying to be braver with my shadows and find they really do make a painting come to life.
Happy day to all!


  1. You also just keep getting better Ross! Thanks for dropping by and leaving nice comments on my blogs. Have a creative week!

  2. Ross . . .thanks for coming by my blog today . . . . .I am admiring the playful and delightful mood of your paintings. It is one thing to paint pictures while it is quite another to be able to consistently put forth a mood which causes a viewer to feel emotion. You have a keen eye for design! Keep up the good work.

  3. This is such a fun piece Ross, really playful and carefree, love it!
