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

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

I have a small series of six new original Queen Anne’s Lace ready for the final touch- the high gloss coat that pops the colour and adds protective layer to the art work. Coming soon  to 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.

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!
