Slow and Steady?

saturday studioWell. What an unusual season this has been for me!

Normally before my winter show, I am pumping out canvas after canvas, and this year I can barely focus. I find myself in a wee bit of an artistic rut. Which is not a bad thing, it usually just means my work is going through a new transition.

As a way to keep myself involved, I’ve just been playing around: painting over old paintings, exploring colour combos, and loosening up my strokes. It has been a fun process, creating for the sake of creating, and not for an assumed “end result.”

These are a few of my practice pieces, which are for sale at a much lower rate than my show work:

 

 

The tree on the left “Monk’s Cove” has been reworked a few times, and I am pricing it at the low end (for a 8×10 inch acrylic on gallery canvas) $40. The one on the right is a moody afternoon “Cobourg Beach, Lake Ontario” priced even lower (8.5×12 inch standard canvas) $25. These paintings will not be at the show, so if you are interested in purchasing one please contact me directly.

It has certainly been a slow but steady progress over the last few months… I have 5 tiny works I still need to finish in the next 2 weeks for the show on November 24th. If you have an art lover in your life (or a Canada-Lover), come see my art! You might find the perfect gift… along with original paintings of Canadian Landscapes, I also have a variety of matted prints, cards, and 2019 calendars. Always something for every budget!

Oh, and just so you know, there are only 2 (out of 13) paintings left from the Canada Series:

 

 

“Saskatchewan” on the left and “Northwest Territories” on the right. They are 12×16 Acrylics on Gallery Canvas $250 each. These ones will be at the show, on display with the whole collection in the 2019 calendars.

Make sure you follow me on Facebook: Jennifer Anne Burke or find me on Instagram: @BurkeUntitled. I post my progress often on both social media sites.

Yogini since I was 17. Certified yoga instructor since I was 24. Totaling over 20 years of experience. Thousands of hours of practice, teaching, learning, sharing, loving, growing. I believe yoga needs to be made accessible to all people, even if that means simply practicing breath work. My business is named "The Gentle Way of Hatha" because from my personal experience it is the gentle practice that has been the most liberating, and what I wish to share with others. The essence of yoga: inner peace. Finding your calm in the chaos of life. Artist my whole life. Failed OCAD (well I didn't really give it a chance, I dropped out after one semester). Continue to create regardless. Check out JenniferAnneBurke.com to view my work. I love to travel, and hope to make it to Iceland in 2020 for an art adventure.
