Simplicity in a landscape is what I love best, I'm still working on it!

Small Treasures Show

Parking lots in the rain at dusk, 
filled with tired people running errands. 
I find them a real hazard, but there are glimpses of

Spring is Here!

The first full day of spring and a warm sunny one at last,
 although my little visitor came from the land of snow!

Week-end Project

Two days of sorting old letters, pictures and kids mementos and the job is still not finished.

It doesn't take a lot of snow to snarl traffic in this city, you might notice a light dusting on the tree. 
I took this picture while inching along to work this morning. 

I'm hoping for a snow day tomorrow!

Week-end Project

After sorting and organizing some boxes of stuff in my studio,
 I found some old linocuts that I had made a couple of years ago.
Thought I would try and set aside some time this week-end and create some more!!

The last of the leaves have blown away and the storms have begun,
 but I don't mind, I love hearing the wind whistling and the rain against my window.

Week-end Inspirations!

My week-end was spent enjoying the textures, 
colours and shapes of  fall
spending a day with my smallest muse!

Monotype "Valley Sunset"

This is a monotype, I did last June, I didn't blog it because I wasn't crazy about the picture and kept thinking I would take a better one, well it never happened and the painting is now ( along with a few other paintings) at the "Chiropractor for Life" offices in Langford. I did this monotype after driving through the Fraser Valley during twilight, the light was very nostalgic for me, having grown up in the valley.

The rains begin... and color harmony!

An example of split-complementary colors (as seen through my studio window), orange and purple with a bit of green.
