The 2017 Art Journey

THANK YOU What an incredibly creative year. 2017 brought seven custom projects, prints selling in a Nova Scotia Art Gallery, two successful art shows, my first calendar project; it also brought more depth and meaning to my work.   Canada: The Provinces and Territories was a wonderful success. I have now sold 8 out ofContinue reading “The 2017 Art Journey”

Bittersweet Completion

It’s hard to believe I’m coming to the end of this three-and-a-half month stretch of painting for my Canada Project and show.  Bittersweet. What an artistic learning curve this project has been. I made sure to give myself LOTS of time to explore these landscapes, because I wanted to add depth to my work andContinue reading “Bittersweet Completion”

Sick Day = Paint Day

Well after a week of feeling a bit “off” I lost my voice last night, and it has yet to return. For those of you who do not know, I am a yoga teacher by trade and losing my precious voice meant cancelling classes today. I spent most of the day resting, but finally IContinue reading “Sick Day = Paint Day”

Canada Project: The Photos

Although I did not get as much painting done this week as I had planned, I did put together the portfolio of photos and summaries for the show. I also had 20 prints made of “Alberta Skies” ($15 each or $20 includes shipping), and cards of “West Wind Rushing In” ($5 each or 5 forContinue reading “Canada Project: The Photos”

This year was Killarney (and Georgian Bay, and theContinue reading “Exploring Northern Ontario”

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”

Summer Fun

Another art show was a success; and as always I’m left feeling so grateful and humbled from it. Last year our show “Earth and Sky”  brought friends out from Toronto to Belleville. This year our show “Vast Lands” brought old friends, some who I hadn’t seen in over a decade! I even met a newContinue reading “Summer Fun”

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”

Robert McAffee and Other Things Art

My personal online presence has been quiet lately. I have been busy working on custom paintings, delivering custom paintings, and struggling with ideas for my “little library” project that desperately needs attention. Since my last blog “Work and Play” I’m still mulling over all the same stuff… But this week I broke through my stuck-in-a-rut-restlessContinue reading “Robert McAffee and Other Things Art”
