On this trip, he brought his paints and brushes, and his camera. After he wandered around the property taking photos for future paintings, and filling two memory cards in the process, Ed set to work on the most wonderful painting of our barn.
While Ed was working, The Husband came inside and said, "You're going to want the painting that Ed's doing."
We settled on a price, and it's now mine.
I love it!!
Ed loves to paint outside (known as Plein Air) ... he will be back either tomorrow or Sunday to paint some more. It's amazing to watch an artist at work, making art out of scenery that I see every day. I sort of hope that I don't like his next paintings, because my budget can't take the hit.
I wonder what he'll come up with next.
Ed King exhibits at Art First, a gallery in downtown Fredericksburg, and has two shows currently running ... one at Castiglia's and another at Sarah Irby's Gallery in Studio A (1011A Princess Anne St).
