New Adventures

It seems like I have been in a bit of a creative “lull”… not much painting has been happening, but let me assure you it’s not due to lack of inspiration. It’s just a few new ideas I am transitioning into… planning my trip to Iceland (tons of paperwork involved in that), prepping for theContinue reading “New Adventures”

Cobourg August Art

HOME First of all, I have to note I am SO happy the big show is over and I have some time to take a break from actual painting (but don’t worry the ideas are still flowing!), and focus a bit more on the business end of things. Thank you to everyone who came outContinue reading “Cobourg August Art”

There’s No Place Like HOME

What a journey the last few months have been, pulling together a collection of acrylic paintings with the theme of “home” for Canadian Landscapes. I have completed 12 (I had hoped for 14, but 2 are still unfinished) canvases for this series. Lake Ontario Collection: Northumberland’s Rolling Hills: Rice Lake Collection: Lake McGinnis: Georgian Bay,Continue reading “There’s No Place Like HOME”

Work In Progress…

This blog will be short and sweet… just sharing a collection of photos of the “works in progress” over the last week (since the last blog). I am loving how some of these are taking shape, and SO excited to share them on July 28th to the public! I hope you can be there…  Continue reading “Work In Progress…”

Home

Today I was up early to paint, and managed to get a few more layers down on some pieces. This series “home” has been a fascinating learning curve for me. I’m watching my style change slightly, as I focus more on boldness and precision. I have really enjoyed working on landscapes so close to myContinue reading “Home”

Second Self and Other Stuff

Considering it has only been two weeks since my last blog post, I feel like a lot is happening! Jennifer Trefiak and I have the “Second Self” show set up in Campbellford, we are working on our next series of “Ontario” paintings for our annual summer show, and I have pre-ordered a sample calendar forContinue reading “Second Self and Other Stuff”

Jasper vs. Banff

    What a difference three years can make in the evolution of an artist. Both of these paintings are Alberta’s Rocky Mountains in the summer. The first one is Jasper (2015), the second one is Banff (2018). These will be hanging side by side at the Trent Hills Public Library in Campbellford from MayContinue reading “Jasper vs. Banff”

Everything Old is New Again

WELL. If you’ve been following my blogs, you will know I have had a really hard time focusing on work for my upcoming show with Jennifer Trefiak. I’ve been distracting myself with other projects (like my Ontario paintings for the July show, or personal projects like the Northern Lights, or film photography, or writing moreContinue reading “Everything Old is New Again”

Under An Arctic Sky

I finally watched this documentary, by Chris Burkard. It had been calling me for awhile, but I didn’t take the initiative to watch it until someone else had, and they suggested I check it out. MIND BLOWN. Go watch it. As an artist, those pristine landscapes are a dream (I’m working on a new NorthernContinue reading “Under An Arctic Sky”
