Purple Hills

Acrylic on Canvas

Another painting from the Creemore area, with it's lovely rolling topography.  The area is known for it's Purple Hills.

One thing I do sometimes if I am having trouble getting jazzed up to paint, is either to look through my art books, or surf the web looking at the work of some of my favourite artists.  It  is always a great way to get inspired to paint.  Donna Andreychk, a fellow Ontario artist, is one of those that I follow.  Her work sings with subtle, yet rich, vibrant colours, and I love her brush work.  I recently had the opportunity to meet her, and she is a lovely person to boot!
