Forty-One is Fun

August 25, 2020, I turned 41 years old; and I must say, despite this pandemic, it has already started off better than last years 40th! I felt like 40 was going to be a turning point for me, but instead of it being the positive one I envisioned, it turned out to be a mildlyContinue reading “Forty-One is Fun”

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”

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”

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.

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.

Since hosting my private art show “Two Days In Jasper” in December 2015, my passion for painting has exploded.

Blessed by Earth & Sky

No words can really describe the gratitude I’m feeling after yesterday’s art show. When you have a drop-in event on a long weekend, you’re taking a chance. Then when no one shows up right away you start to worry and wonder if anyone is really coming… and you remind yourself, no matter how the dayContinue reading “Blessed by Earth & Sky”

I Like To Collect Art Too

Last week I gifted myself an original work of art by Herb Jung. I had been admiring some of his “Raven” paintings at Engine Gallery  in Port Hope a few months before, but they were WAY out of my budget. A few weeks later, some smaller crow paintings arrived- in my budget (mostly). Bonus, the paintingContinue reading “I Like To Collect Art Too”
