Painting at Como Zoo



After an unbearable day of heat and humidity yesterday, we got an absolutely beautiful day to go on our Como Zoo field trip. As a number of people went and looked at the animals and activities that were going on, I was intent on painting the little water mill that I have walked by so many times going to the zoo. It was something that I really wanted to capture and was happy to have finally had the chance to get something going. The only bad thing is I only had a couple of hours to get to the zoo and get something on canvas so I will be having to finish this up in the studio in the coming weeks. Hope you like!



Now on to the chalk mural painting at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts tomorrow for family day. It will be a blast recreating Joan Miro's "The Spanish Playing Cards". Look for images from that event tomorrow and hope everyone is having a great weekend so far.
