Gloria J Zucaro's "The Traveling Chicken", "Enzo's gift" & Sunny Meadow"

I am posting to Paint Party Friday.  Also to Pinterest. 

This past week I finished an oil painting, called "Sunny Meadow"

8' x 10" on stretched canvas

My grandson Enzo wanted me to paint Pikachu for him and send it in the mail, even though he lives 20 minutes away.  He is 7 years old so I complied!  I made up a story about it.  I painted the figure in acrylics and used a pigma pen to make the "Magic Web".  There is no such thing from that company, but I told him if you wore it you would be invisible, if you threw it on the ground it made an escape tunnel, if you threw it out in front of you it acted like a flying carpet and you could escape that way, too!  He said "Really?!"  I said "No, that is just from my imagination!"  "Oh."

 

The Traveling Chick and her friends came for a short visit this weekend. Ms. Chick had lots of photos from previous travels. Two of the most interesting were Moscow and Alaska. Alaska was a bit harrowing because she ran across a wolf and could really relate to Little Red Riding Hood. Moscow was beautiful and very cultural. Many buildings are painted with pastel colors so as to alleviate the dreariness of the long cold winters. We could use some of that here in NE Illinois.
You can see previous paintings of Ms. Chick on her FaceBook page and on her very own blog.

Beware of wolves in...well, in wolves clothing!

Ms. Chick and friends will be traveling on to Pennsylvania tomorrow. We had a relaxing visit and I took several pictures for painting this coming week.  If you are interested in signing up for a chance visit with Ms. Chick go to the blog site linked above.

Have a good week,

Gloria

  4. Beautiful meadow and fun stuff as well. It's so important to get ones own mail when just seven years old. I did the same for a child in our family once.

  9. Your painting is beautiful - Pikachu is wonderful and I love the story you made up for your grandson. Mine is now 10 and might not believe that story. He is still a big light in my life though!
