Sunday Morning

Nothing like painting an arbutus to put me in a positive frame of mind!  Plus, I mixed up some beautiful acrylic colours for my paint getting a whole new set of crayons to colour with.

This is an 8x24" acrylic on canvas.  SOLD

Ray of Sunshine

I've been away moving my mom from Saskatoon to BC, so I have a bit of catching up to do.

This spring we had three Goldfinches flitting across the yard to use the bird bath.  Bright notes of colour.  A real pleasure to watch.

Into The Light

I've been in Saskatoon so I'm a tad behind in posting.  I really like painting can sink so many soft colours into the shadows.

This is a 16x20 oil on deep canvas.  SOLD

In the Pink

Still hopeful that spring is just around the corner.  The crocuses are blooming, the forsythia is getting ready, but it is still wet, windy and on the cool side.  Promises for sunshine and warmer weather next week, so maybe we'll see this little guy in a tree...somewhere, maybe.

Back in Arbutus Land...this is a cheery little arbutus painting with wildflowers.  We have an abundance of wildflowers in the summer, although on close inspection they might be mistaken as dandelions and weeds.  Ever the optimist....

Spring Has Sprung


This is another happy little back alley scene.  I say 'happy' because that's what colour does for me.  When I dream the scary dreams are always in black and white.....happy dreams are in colour.  Just set me loose with a box of crayons and I will colour your world :}

This is a 9x12" on stretched canvas.

Young Love

There were definite signs of spring....walking through Davis Bay and my garden, snowdrops were poking their little heads out. we have six inches of February snow.  Oh, well, I painted something with Valentine's Day in mind, and hopefully the snow will be gone in a few days and we'll be back to that lovely rain.  I hope my snowdrop hasn't been squashed.  There's one that pops its little head up in January, the rest follow suit in February.  Huh.  Snow...

This is a 10x10" acrylic on deep canvas.

Weight of Snow

I can remember scenes like this when I lived in Saskatoon and Edmonton.  The weight of the snow pushing the branches down...running outside to shake the snow off the bushes, and getting awfully wet in the process.

This is a 10x10 acrylic painting on deep canvas.

Winter Coat

This is from a photo I took one wintery day in Porpoise Bay Provincial Park.  It was a fairly complex painting, but I really enjoyed the challenge, and I'm pleased with the result.
