New Adventures

It seems like I have been in a bit of a creative “lull”… not much painting has been happening, but let me assure you it’s not due to lack of inspiration. It’s just a few new ideas I am transitioning into… planning my trip to Iceland (tons of paperwork involved in that), prepping for theContinue reading “New Adventures”

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”

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”

Jasper vs. Banff

    What a difference three years can make in the evolution of an artist. Both of these paintings are Alberta’s Rocky Mountains in the summer. The first one is Jasper (2015), the second one is Banff (2018). These will be hanging side by side at the Trent Hills Public Library in Campbellford from MayContinue reading “Jasper vs. Banff”

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”

Spring Cleaning

  I’m still not sure I believe spring is really here, although it has technically been here since March 20th. The sun feels closer, warmer, and stays out longer, with wonderful sunrises and sunsets daily. All the snow is gone from the water front. Mostly we’ve had calm waters and clear skies. At the veryContinue reading “Spring Cleaning”

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”

Oh Those Skies

During the process of painting for my Canada: The Provinces and Territories series, I knew I wanted to try something large scale after that, focused on sky. The Canada paintings were a chance to try out some new ideas and techniques with clouds, blending, flow and even iridescent paint. I fell in love with howContinue reading “Oh Those Skies”
