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

24 x 24 Acrylic and resin on gallery wood support

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.

When the stars line up…

I absolutely love it when the stars line up and I’m taken away by painting, music and watching it all melt together before my eyes. This work in progress has been a joy!

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.

Snow in Merrickville

It was a quiet day full of Charlie Brown snowflakes and I felt like painting what I saw out my window. Lovely hazy trees in the distance and soft snow falling. There is one tree that stands out from the rest, tall and twisted. It has it’s own thing happening and may not be conventionally beautiful but there is room for all.

work in progress

Image This is something new I’m currently working on. I’m not sure how much more I’ll do…I want to keep it fresh and it has nice contrast in the dark shadowy areas. The area in the background needs some love though. It’s a rock, or it’s going to become one. Yellowknife has plenty of rock, so much so that I was kind of taken aback when we first landed here. Now, my view point has changed. Climbing the rocks will be one of the things I’ll miss about living in Yellowknife.

Light. air and delicate tulip blooms

I’m so happy with the latest tulip paintings. I did a small series of three. There is something very serene and delicate going on in each original painting.

Aurora paintings

I walked out on the lake on New Year’s Eve to find myself standing under a vivid aurora. It made me feel very fortunate, peaceful and inspired. The painting began the next day and six small originals (6 x 6 inches) and have been completed displaying lots of light play and resined with a high gloss topcoat and delivered to Down to Earth Gallery and Visual Effects.

Keeping warm in the North

I’m working on a painting of a tree bursting with warm fall colours of burned red, gold and umber. It feels like -33 C with the wind chill here in Yellowknife and today there is no place I’d rather be than inside. I’m feeling some big artistic changes coming and I’m going to take this long winter of ours to explore a new creative direction. With some experimentation and hopefully interesting growth over the next few months, I’ll be ready to welcome Spring with a fresh offering of original art.Image

Aurora brightens the Yellowknife night sky

I’ve been roaming around at night. It’s not insomnia it the aurora effect. Are they going to show? How cloudy is it? A few evenings ago the sky above Yellowknife looked like it was supporting some wonderful cosmic lava lamp. I saw a vortex of light two nights ago. Incredible. My artwork can’t recreate mother nature’s glory but these whimsical paintings are so much fun to do I can’t help myself.
