Oh Those Skies

During the process of painting for my Canada: The Provinces and Territories series, I knew I wanted to try something large scale after that, focused on sky. The Canada paintings were a chance to try out some new ideas and techniques with clouds, blending, flow and even iridescent paint. I fell in love with howContinue reading “Oh Those Skies”

2018 Art Calendar

Well, what a learning curve! I finally decided to try and make an art calendar. Talk about being pushed beyond my comfort zone. I do as much business as possible locally. I do as much IN PERSON as possible. I dislike ordering bulk of anything, without seeing and feeling the first trial run of aContinue reading “2018 Art Calendar”

My Canada Project

A few weeks ago I introduced my next project on the blog: The Provinces and Territories. It is coming to life already: I have started 3 out of the 13 canvases (because the other 10 canvases had to be ordered in- they best get here soon as I’m on a roll!). This is a newContinue reading “My Canada Project”

The Provinces and Territories | Canada Project

I’ve had an idea brewing for a while now, about a Canada painting project. The idea solidified when I saw this image floating around the internet: This photo blew my mind about Canada. I instantly wanted to hop in the car and drive as fast as possible to Twillingate, Newfoundland Labrador. Of course, this wasContinue reading “The Provinces and Territories | Canada Project”

Old Photos to New Paintings

Tonight I started cleaning my studio space, so I can paint tomorrow. In the process of looking for my Hoodoo photographs, I discovered a gold-mine of photos from my personal travels and hikes going all the way back to 2003. As a result, I pulled a few old photos out and found a wealth ofContinue reading “Old Photos to New Paintings”

LIBRARY: Since the New Year, this Little Library project has been consuming my head space, studio space and calendar space! I am so so so happy to have it completed, and so honoured to have been a part of this community project. Four other woman also donated their time and space to creating lovely LittleContinue reading “Port Hope Little Libraries”

Life Revival

I feel like life is reviving itself: Days are getting longer, we’ve had more sun and some mild temps. Things are moving, and getting done. Feeling good. Be warned: I’ve been busy covering a lot of ground, this is like four blogs in one! ART CONTEST WINNER First things first: Thank you to everyone whoContinue reading “Life Revival”

Canadian Landscapes

WELL. I’m struggling to start this blog entry. A week ago today, I returned from a 9 day trip across Canada. I have a friend who moved to Vancouver, so we drove her car out west and then I flew home. Holy memories! We have been friends for 27 years (we met when were 10Continue reading “Canadian Landscapes”

Northumberland Hills Hospital

Since July my painting “Earth Energy” has been hanging in the gallery hall at the Northumberland Hills Hospital in Cobourg. I consider this a community piece, as half of the proceeds will be donated between the hospital and the art committee. This acrylic painting will be hanging in the hall named “Sumac Street” until mid-December. It isContinue reading “Northumberland Hills Hospital”

Lake Superior

Since viewing Lawren Harris’ painting “Lake Superior, North Shore” at the National Gallery in 2004, I have wanted to travel there. Other than that painting I knew nothing of this land or lake. I now know Lake Superior is the largest, deepest and coldest body of fresh water in the world. When I compare LakeContinue reading “Lake Superior”
