Painting in the park


This is Jennifer, who I met in the Public Garden last week. She was painting the George Washington statue (see my post tomorrow) along with a couple of friends. Jennifer is a local artist from Hingham, a town just south of Boston. Jennifer was very friendly and even stopped to let me take her portrait. We talked of the merits of composing a picture and not having to crop, but she did admit to trimming a canvas to achieve a better composition; I think it's all part of the artistic process. You can see Jennifer at work below and a some of the painting she was working on.

Always interesting to chat with artists. It looks like she knows what she is doing.

Ah, I didn't know that. Painters trimming their canvas. Very interesting.
