Mica and birch bark pendants. I’m thinking the stamped birch bark looks like a buried treasure map. How cute is that?

Northern Nights

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.

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

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.
