One of my regular places to paint now is at the LRAA Gallery in Tilton, NH when I am gallery sitting. I certainly make good use of my time there, particularly if it is a slow day. Sometimes it is quite busy and I never get to my painting - since the goal is to sell the artwork at the gallery, I certainly prefer having customers to painting.
This painting of the two alpacas was started at one of my recent gallery sitting days. I made a fair amount of progress that day and finished the painting in my studio. I took the photo that I used for the painting at one of the many fall Fairs that my husband and I attend almost every year. Even though I take many pictures of the animal each year, you never know when you might get the one photo that speaks to you and that you just have to paint. This was one of those photos that I just had to paint and I'm glad I did!
