Cobourg’s Festival of The Arts

Four years now, I have been a part of a local art association called Spirit of the Hills (SOTH). During this time I have had opportunities to show my work at our local hospital, the Campbellford Library, the Colborne Art Gallery, the Cobourg Art Walk and Pub Crawl, and the Cobourg Waterfront Festival. I haveContinue reading “Cobourg’s Festival of The Arts”

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”

Thinking Ahead: Wrapping up 2019

We are over half way through the year, and one that started off rocky and  unmotivated has transformed into a multitude of opportunities and events.  I finally started oil painting, I was accepted into my first juried show at the Colborne Art Gallery, I have been working on a variety of custom paintings, and IContinue reading “Thinking Ahead: Wrapping up 2019”

Adventures in Art | Summer 2019

Summer has just begun but holy moly with a bang! At the end of June I wrapped up a huge custom painting, which was fun but also very challenging (it was a surprise gift, so very little communication was made during the process). I was  happy  to  hear  it  was  a hit! Then at theContinue reading “Adventures in Art | Summer 2019”

North and West (now in oils)

I have been working like to a champ to plow through these new oil paintings, and although none of the new north/west paintings are complete, I am too excited to not share the journey.   Since 2004 I have been painting in acrylics, trying to obtain the look and feel of oil, and it hasContinue reading “North and West (now 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”

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”

When Art Becomes Work

It has been a very interesting month for me. As I’ve mentioned, I have a show to set up in Campbellford the first week in May, and I’ve been trying to tie up a lot of loose ends on old works of art, and have also been pulling old pieces back out to sell. ThisContinue reading “When Art Becomes Work”
