I’m trying to shift gears for spring and feel like it should be warm out already. So I forced the issue a little with this crazy tulip painting. It’s a little all over the place and has the energy of ” I can’t wait for spring”. This one is a warm up for me, a study to see what works and colour combinations. Okay, next one should be a little calmer.
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.
A little sunshine can do a world of good. Looking forward to warmer breezes as the days stretch toward Spring. In the meantime I’m breaking out the cheerful palette and whimsical style. The sparse and hazy florals I like for their moody rain washed look. The painting directly above reminds me of groovy days of flower power.
Peaceful landscapes are arriving at Artisans in the ByWard Market this week in my new original acrylic paintings.

On a clear cold night you may witness the aurora over Yellowknife. Wondering if they’ll show tonight? I’ve been working on this 24 x 24 acrylic and silver leaf on wood. The lights continue to inspire and amaze me. This original painting (acrylic, silver leaf and resin on wood) is available at Visual Effects in Yellowknife.
