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!

Strolling Merrickville

Today was one of those perfect fall days for a stroll through Merrickville, Ontario. My mugging son and I walked along the canal, soaked in a little sun and checked out the local scenery. There is still lots of green in the grass and colour in the trees. img_5653

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

falling leaves


A new painting of falling leaves. I’m looking forward to participating in a couple of art shows coming up. The Anonymous Art Show is on at Down to Earth Gallery, Yellowknife from Oct 30 – Nov 1 and Freeze-Up will be happening Nov 15 at the Tree of Peace Friendship Centre also in Yellowknife.
