New Landscapes

11 x 14 - Acrylic on Canvas

Beyond The Shadow
11 x 14 - Acrylic on Cradled wood Panel

These two paintings are now at the Juan De Fuca Centre. "Overlooking" is one of my favourite spots on the Dallas waterfront and "Beyond the Shadow" is a composite painting  from places in the Fraser Valley.

 Now I'm off to Tofino with friends, to do some storm watching!

Happy New Year!

It was nice to have few days off after Christmas. My time was spent working on a huge oil painting,running to the art store to buy lino to make prints and then over to the craft store for wool to make a scarf.  I realize I am a bit of a "scanner" when it comes to creating art. I love to trying new things, and sometimes have trouble finishing projects:).

The above acrylic painting was started and finished today..

Saanich Fields

Reminiscent of Italy.
I drive by these fields pretty much every day,
 but yesterday they really caught my eye!

Late Summer

I finished this acrylic painting on the week-end, between cooking, eating, visiting, eating, and more visiting!

I tried making baba ghanoush for an event this past week-end, but I ended up not serving it. It didn't look at all like the picture.  I am much happier with the painting and I'm glad to say that it will be in the "Food for Thought" Show at the Coast Collective, Sept 21 to Oct 9

When I don't have a lot of time I find myself painting landscapes, putting paint on canvas without alot of preliminary thought gives me the fix I sometimes need.

A Vague Resolution

I admire people who are able to make lists and outline their goals for the coming year, for instance my daughter and her husband meticulously write down resolutions and put them in their advent calendar to be read and reviewed the following year.

This year I do have a recurring thought that could be considered a resolution “Do something with the art blog”. I haven't made any lists nor do I have specific goals, just more discipline and focus on my part. Let's hope I can stick to it!

Last Day in August

This painting along with "Last Light" are the two other paintings I have at the Juan de Fuca Centre.

The associate members from the "Coast Collective" have a show at this location and another one at the Crossroads Pub in Colwood. I would encourage you to go and have a look. Also go and visit the gallery and gift shops at the Coast Collective Centre. Check out their website for more info.

Last Night I Went for A Walk

After a really warm summer day, there is nothing better then feeling the cool marine air comming off the water, I love the smells, the colours, almost everything about this time of year.

This painting along with a few others will be in the Coast Collective Show at the Juan de Fuca Centre, starting tomorrow!

It finally feels like spring and I couldn't resist painting the blossoms that were outside my bedroom window.

We have a lot of beautiful pink cherry blossom trees in the neighbourhood, but I was inspired by these simple white blossoms.

Harbour Walk

This is the city I see when I walk along the harbour into town. It’s a painting that I did a few months ago but never blogged. I find it so easy to leave paintings at a certain point, thinking that I still might want to change things. But for now Ithink I'll leave it.

Venice Windows 1, 2 & 3

I decided to leave a lot of space around the windows in the hopes of creating a simplistic painting with an obvious focal point.

It was difficult to leave the space as is and not fill it with some sort of detail, it was also a good exercise in tonal balance.
Each painting is 12" x 12" acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas

This is one of my favourite drives along the Cowichan Valley.

I think this will be the last of the landscapes for awhile, I have a few days off so I'm hoping to paint larger and spend some time experimenting with monoprints.
