Porteau Cove

This is another sketch from Porteau Cove. I enjoy doing these impression paintings. It gives a real feel for the atmosphere and day. I had gone for a walk along the beach with my dog and because it was a very damp and cool day we went back to my van and I sat inside and did the sketch.

Watercolor Sketch

This is one of two successful sketches that I did at Porteau Cove. It was a cloudy, moody day with the mountains being covered and bits showing here and there.

"Tidepool" 10"X10" acrylic on gessoed watercolor paper. This is another scene I will be entering into the Federation show this weekend. I have posted half a dozen images on Ebay. Do have a look at lfsgr805.

Forest Scene

This is a 14"X11" acrylic painting done on foamcore. This is an interesting surface to work on in that the surface is very slippery. So to combat that I have gauze and bits of dried acrylic paint and strips of acrylic soaked paper towel.

I am entering this piece into a Federation show this weekend. It will be interesting to see how it is received.

10"X8" Acrylic on Canvas

Here we go! I am going to try to list a new painting every day from now until Christmas. Will likely miss a few days but I am going to give it a try.

This image is part of a new style of painting for me. It is in acrylic and acrylics behave quite differently for me but after my 3 week period painting with them on the cruise ship I have learned a lot and am looking forward to sharing many of these images with you.

I have started listing on Ebay, starting with this one. My call sign is lfsgr805. I will try and list a new one every day. Of course I would love for you to spread the word and see if I can get some people watching me on Ebay. I always check to see how many people are watching so do join in.

Love to hear from you.



"Personally" 8"X6" Acrylic on Canvas

This is another painting that I did on the Zaandam, Holland America ship. This was a lot of fun especially when someone said they liked my Apple painting. Must of been a language barrier. I sold this image as soon as I got home.

I am going to start posting on Ebay again, either tonight or tomorrow. I am going to try to post a new painting every day until Christmas. All things going well. I am looking forward to seeing how Ebay has evolved. Do send me an email if you have any questions.
