Craving Colour

I find on dreary days I'm in my studio craving colour.  Even when my intention is to paint a dull, somber scene  I feel compelled to use lots of warm reds and yellows. Blue Sky is on the Way 48" x 36" (Diptych, 2 @ 24" x 36")  Acrylic on Canvas

The Great Portrait Challenge - 2017, Cobourg

On the weekend the Spirit of the Hills hosted the Great Portrait Challenge. 4 of us artists spent Saturday morning creating a portrait of Lou Rinaldi, MPP of Northumberland-Quinte West. A great time was had by all and Lou ended up leaving with all 4 portraits.

New Blog Look, New Autumn Painting!

Recently I had decided that my blog needed a new fresh look. 
I was able to revise and test it last week and, hopefully, I've ironed the bugs out. What do you think?  On the weekend I was busy working on a new idea. The beautiful autumn colours  (and rain) make it easy to "waste time" in the studio. I was up all night with this one  and very excited to see where this piece will take me.  I will post pictures when it's complete. 

The Art of Giving

On Thursday October 19th, twenty-five Canadian artists generously donated their work to the Art of Giving, charity auction organized by York Region to benefit those in need in the community. Almost $10 000  was raised for the United Way Campaign.

Remembering Winter?

Yes, because on my easel is a painting of snow! I guess I wasn't done with winter.
