So for Day 6 of my 30 paintings in 30 days challenge, I created a Paint Party painting, “Pine Trees at Sunset”, inspired by Tom Thomson. I saw a great exhibit of Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven at McMichael Art Gallery several years ago, and love the freshness, immediacy and vibrant colours of their work. With today’s frigid temperatures again, I needed to paint something warm and vibrant. This will be a fun Paint Party painting, especially for admirers of Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven.

My Day 7 painting for the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge is “Highland Cow”. This is one of the Highland cows I came across in West Lincoln about 20 minutes from our farm. I was excited to see a small herd of highland cattle here in Ontario, Canada. I introduced myself to the owner and his little daughter and asked if I could take reference photos of his cows, explaining that I was an artist and Scottish, so had a special affinity to highland cattle. He agreed and even stopped by in his van on his way out to see how I was making out, driving off when he saw me in the pasture getting along with my new friends. Highland Calf and Highland Moo, are two paintings I completed last year of two other highland cows in this small herd.
