Great Bouquet

Since these paintings have already found homes I am not looking up their title, simply having fund renaming them. Wouldn't you absolutely love to have a bouquet like this sitting in a sunny window?

This really was a lot of fun to do. I think I should revisit some of all my European Door references.

Blast from the past

I thought it would be fun to show you some images from the past when I was doing almost a painting a day. Some of these are quite chipper and refreshing. Do let me know what you think by sending me an email.

Quick Study, Mac Donald Park

It is so beautiful at this time of the year. Almost, moreso than our rainy July. It is sunny, warm and there is a light breeze blowing. I just had to go out and do a quick drawing in one of our parks. This is done in Pastel On Gatorfoam. If I do a large painting from this sketch I will call it Indian Summer.

This kind of scene is quite typical of our lakes and streams in British Columbia. Beautiful cedars hanging over stream beds.

Morning Visit

Morning Visit 18X24 Oil on Canvas $575

The light in the morning is quite different when you are painting. This beach on Salt Spring Island was rich with warm tones. Later in the day it was back to greys. I knew there was a reason that I liked getting up early in the morning.

From a Distance

From a Distance Oil on Canvas 12X24

This is one of my intuitive landscapes. I start with a variety of colours and I let the colours and shapes intuitively lead me to the landscape.

Rising 16X16 Oil on canvas
I love cloud formations and have been known to pull off the side of a busy freeway to catch the images of clouds moving by. This painting is a free interpretation of the clouds rising.
