JUNE: 630

June - Swim 630

 Swim - yes we do, in June.
Thank you for joining me with a painting a day in June.  Below is the entire month of June.  It was a project of epic proportions for me - my first installment work.  Each panel is for sale individually.  When the painting was first viewed - it was like a full beautifully decorated cake that was uncut.  No one wanted to be the first to take a piece.  It was a bit disappointing for me - but the part that I did not expect, nor anticipate is the amount of joy that it brought to me as I watched people stand in front of the painting - pondering each panel, each day and talking amongst themselves about things and memories that it prompted in them.  Discussions of riding in the "way back" in a station wagon on a road trip, gramma's cherry pie, June brides, Father's Day and all other things in between.  It was magical for me.

June - All Things Random Come Together 629

I love painting chickens.  And, well... this panel was the one that was the closest to me at all times while working on all 30 panels on my work table.  It was closest to the palette and it seemed like all the cut outs and all the random things would rest on this panel while waiting to find inspiration and a place.   Some of these random bits - they just became permanent after a while.

When I was a little girl, my Dad and I had a game.  He was an artist and painted Northwest scenery, landscapes, boats, seascapes and the like.  But, in almost every painting, he hid a cat for me.  Somewhere, somehow, there was a wee kitty hiding in the foreground, sky or wherever it could be.  It was my job to find it.  So, in this rather large painting of June - there are two kitties (here is the other one) painted in with love - just for my Dad. 
Almost to the end of June.  You can catch up with the painting a day in June project - HERE.  Happy Friday everyone!! 
Here is JUNE in it's entirety  - just a few more to go
