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

Little Aurora Paintings

I’ve been painting away on a new little grouping of northern landscapes. I hope to have them ready to show soon. A small grouping of tree paintings and the new maple leaf design are en route to Yellowknife. They should be arriving at Visual Effects in a few days.

Simply tranquil

Original acrylic and resin on a 24 x 24 cradled wood support


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.

Good Morning!

revealing the painting early this morning…photo

This bold bright tree is called “Find the Time” and is the new arrival at Windsor’s Courtyard in Merrickville. It’s an original acrylic and high gloss resin painting on a 48 x 36 cradled wood panel. Check out the shop and courtyard for beautiful gifts and treasures for your home and garden.

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!

Rustic Winter Original

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.

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.






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
