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”

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”

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”

Lake Ontario Collection: Northumberland’s Rolling Hills: Rice Lake Collection: Lake McGinnis: Georgian Bay,Continue reading “There’s No Place Like HOME”

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…”

Home

Today I was up early to paint, and managed to get a few more layers down on some pieces. This series “home” has been a fascinating learning curve for me. I’m watching my style change slightly, as I focus more on boldness and precision. I have really enjoyed working on landscapes so close to myContinue reading “Home”

Everything Old is New Again

WELL. If you’ve been following my blogs, you will know I have had a really hard time focusing on work for my upcoming show with Jennifer Trefiak. I’ve been distracting myself with other projects (like my Ontario paintings for the July show, or personal projects like the Northern Lights, or film photography, or writing moreContinue reading “Everything Old is New Again”
