Rainy day studio

Whiskey (18 x 24 in.) oil on canvas, by Carol Berry, copyright 2009.

I painted Whiskey’s portrait last August at our trailer. Unfortunately it was a really wet summer and rained almost every weekend. Luckily our new home-away-from-home has a large brightly kitchen which easily fit my studio easel and paints. After five years of use I found that my favourite Julian French easel was not flexible enough for me, and I gave it to a very delighted eldest daughter. Over the past few months I’ve put together a new plein air kit. I’m looking so forward to spring to get outside to paint. I admit that I’m not brave enough to paint outdoors in Toronto in the wintertime even though our it has been unseasonably mild lately.
