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

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.

I hope to bring this colourful original to the Artisans in the ByWard Market tomorrow. This joyful piece is 24 x 24 inches and painted with acrylics on cradled wood. A high gloss topcoat brings out the colours beautifully.

Good Morning!

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!

Getting warmed up for the Tulip Festival

C’mon Spring!

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.




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.






Sunlight puts a little spring in your step

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.

Music is fuelling the painting party!

Sweet little originals coming to Artisans in the ByWard Market Tuesday. Thank you oh strange winter in Ontario…I’m already thinking of Spring.

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
