For sure some of the images will be based on the annual Fourth of July Celebration. Our town has it all, a beauty pageant, a Fun Run, a parade and fireworks. What more could you want? Every year my husband, kids and I go stay with my parents for the Fourth. And every year I take loads of reference pictures. This year I will do it again. Maybe this year will also be the year I actually start painting from them?? I'm thinking of drawing some thumbnails while I wait for the parade to start. Michael will be so proud.
One of the images I am itching to paint is the tradition of the chairs. I couldn't explain it better than my sister did so click the link to see what I am talking about. I only hope someone put out a chair for me! After all, I am bringing my art canopy so the whole family has shade!
