Thank you to the Studio Theatre in Perth Ontario for displaying a selection of my original paintings until October 21 2018.
My latest painting is a 36 x 36 original:
Look for night trees at the Opening Reception of The Square Foot Show and Sale happening at FM Studio 330 Main St. E, Merrickville Ontario on Saturday, November 10, 2018 12 pm-5 pm
I had to return to this painting several times before I got to where I really loved it. This one is all atmosphere storm and light. It reflects the weather on the day I finished it and the summer storm rolling in is captured forever. For more information contact me at my studio, firstname.lastname@example.org
This original 12 x 24 “Paddles Up” series painting was a joy to create with acrylic and Art Resin on a cradled wood panel. Available to view and purchase at The Yellow Canoe Cafe in Merrickville.
I look forward to painting daily and if I’m not painting I’m thinking of painting and new things to try. Keeping life simple and allowing myself the time and space to let the art develop organically is what I strive to do. I rarely have a plan just a vague image or idea in my head I want to explore. I have to gently remind myself from time to time I have the choice to paint whatever I feel in the moment. Maybe in my explorations you’ll find a connection to something I’m working on or working out in the paint. Maybe a painting will intuitively speak to you. Making those connections is another wonder I get to experience and it continues to bring me joy.
I’ve had the pleasure of showing my work as part of an artists collective in the ByWard Market for many years and in galleries in Canada including The Carlen Gallery, Ottawa, The Grimm Gallery, Port Carling and The SideStreet Gallery in Wellington, Ontario. I’ve participated in a group show at the McMichael Gallery in Kleinburg, Ontario group shows in London, England. I’ve experienced exhibited at the The One of a Kind Show, Exhibition Place, Toronto, The Originals Show in Ottawa and last summer at The West Carleton Art Society’s Art on the Grass Show in Carp, Ontario. I’ve had the privilege of being a commissioned artist at Rideau Hall, Ottawa and an exhibitor at the Iceolation Art Gallery in the Snow King’s Castle in Yellowknife.
