Sunday Moods

I am always an early riser. This morning I got out for groceries at 8am, and tossed Neil Young’s “Prairie Wind” in the CD player… Did it ever set my mood for the day. “The painter stood, before her work, she looked around everywhere… she saw the pictures and she painted them, picking colours fromContinue reading “Sunday Moods”

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?”

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…”

Under An Arctic Sky

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”

The Scattered Mind

February already eh? F*ck.     I’m not gonna lie, January has felt like a shit show, and I know I am not the only person who feels this way! Weather has been fluctuating, moods have been fluctuating, and my mind has been all over the map. My appetite and sleep patterns have been aContinue reading “The Scattered Mind”

Sweet Soul Projects

At the end of January I was approached by a fellow interested in a custom order painting. I took it on fast, and within a week the piece was complete. What a whirl wind of a journey it was! It started with some rough sketches and matching brain waves… This was before we met. ThisContinue reading “Sweet Soul Projects”
