Mini meet of artists inspires an idea for a painting

A very special artist JJ from Australia came over to Ontario last weekend and a group of us from Ontario held a meet at my house to welcome her.

It was a fun day with plenty of opportunity for discussions about art and anything really



but we managed to squeeze in some painting time too



As James and I were sifting through the photo's James suggested that an artist at work would make a great portrait study. Capturing the concentration, the creativity, the whole 'lost in the moment' thing. An excellent idea, I thought so after a couple of days working on the outline this is what I have decided upon. The person in the painting is a very dear friend Denis keegan. Denis I hope you will enjoy watching your portrait come to life
