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”

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?”

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”

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…”

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”

Painting Progress!

Today was a glorious day. I woke up before the sun, with a crescent moon in view. Spend the morning with the windows open: cleaning, purging and organizing house. Went for a beach stroll in the afternoon, which re-energized me for an afternoon of painting.     I can finally say I’m satisfied with thisContinue reading “Painting Progress!”

So Many Ideas and So Little Time

Honestly, where does the time go?! It seems like just a few days ago I was up to my knees in snow, trudging towards the ice volcanoes on the fierce and moody Lake Ontario. Now, it’s flat land of sand at the beach, and smooth waves rolling onto the shore; any ice left is quicklyContinue reading “So Many Ideas and So Little Time”

Lake Ontario Love

  Okay, if I’m honest, Lake Ontario is not my favourite Great Lake (Superior is far superior!). However, over the last year I have really come to love the moody skies and landscapes that I witness every day. The sunrises and sunsets, the breaks of sun-rays through the clouds, the unlimited colour palettes, and noContinue reading “Lake Ontario Love”

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”
