Merrickville Winter Makers Market had a wonderful beginning. Well done!

Autumn in Ontario paintings

Glorious Fall colours against that silvery blue sky. It’s the favourite time of year for many including myself. I’m trying to catch that dreamy quality above and the shock of colour below. It’s fleeting though so get out and enjoy!

Simply tranquil

This new painting brings back the serene feeling of standing under the aurora on a still evening and listening to see if you can actually hear the dancing lights in the sky.

Summer dreams in Queen Anne’s Lace

There is something about Queen Anne’s Lace that brings back memories of childhood hot summer days that seemed to stretch far longer than the length of the school break. This painting has a dreamy quality of wildflowers moving in the warm breeze. It’s a new addition and available at Windsor’s Courtyard in Merrickville, Ontario.

Large tangled tree original painting    3 x 4 feet acrylic on canvas

This is a large canvas with a quiet palette but a lot of interest and subtle details. It’s rich in texture and glazing in the underpainting.

Sweet Aurora Paintings

A new selection of original northern light paintings are due to arrive in the ByWard Market tomorrow. The little originals are 6 x 6 inches on a gallery profile wood support. 

trying to get it right

Below are three images of the same painting. I thought it was “done” a couple of times but something wasn’t sitting right with me and I gave it another go. Now it has the richness and depth that comes with layers, glazing,  pouring and all of that good stuff.

This natural palette is one of my favourite. It’s calming with subtle drama. I love seeing the silver blue sky meeting the ocher field and the dark contrast of the trees. 8 x 36

Mica and birch bark pendants. I’m thinking the stamped birch bark looks like a buried treasure map. How cute is that?
