Nature, Art, and Life Inspiration

Yesterday was the first day back to school for a lot of kids. A great time to get back into routine, and for myself it’s the perfect time to regroup on business. Today felt like a fresh start, another new beginning (of many, in these life cycles). It is so great to be able toContinue reading “Nature, Art, and Life Inspiration”

Adventures in Uxbridge

I love random adventures; and this was one of them. We went to Uxbridge for my kid, to attend “Day Out With Thomas”… but happening down the road was “Art In The Park” and I knew one of my favourite artists would be there. First of all, if you have not been to Uxbridge, youContinue reading “Adventures in Uxbridge”

New Canadian Landscape Series (in oils)

It feels so good to be out of my creative-rut. Although now I am being challenged in new ways. You may have read my last blog “Revival of the Arts” where I share my first (real) attempt with oil painting. Since then, I have started a new collection of 5 Canadian Landscapes (or 8 ifContinue reading “New Canadian Landscape Series (in oils)”

Revival of the Arts

I finally broke through my art-funk last week, when I had a night alone and decided to work in the oil paints I’ve avoided forever. I used some of my most simple beach photographs and applied that simplicity to the paintings:   I finished two acrylics from my Ontario collection, and continue to work onContinue reading “Revival of the Arts”

Winter Brilliance

  After a grey and moody September, October, November, and December; it seems the new year has lightened up and brought us a bit of sun and snow. I always find this time of year to be so magical – winter light just has the best glow. Sunrises and sunsets, crisp starlit nights; and wowContinue reading “Winter Brilliance”

New Year New Plans

2018 has been pretty amazing. I have sold 12 of 13 paintings from my Canada series (the final one left is Saskatchewan, if you’re interested); I have put plans in the works for a future (art) trip to Iceland (Check out my Facebook Page: Jennifer Anne Burke, The Iceland Project); and Jennifer Trefiak and IContinue reading “New Year New Plans”

Creative Christmas!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to swing by the Christmas Market, say hello, and pick up some special gifts for friends and family. I love meeting new people, and chatting with old friends. All support is so appreciated! I am happy to say a variety of paintings went to new homes (3Continue reading “Creative Christmas!”

Slow and Steady?

Well. 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 throughContinue reading “Slow and Steady?”
