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.
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.
revealing the painting early this morning…
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.
When you are visiting the beautiful village of Merrickville Ontario be sure to stop into Windsor’s Courtyard located at 211 St. Lawrence Street. Windsor’s Courtyard is a sophisticated garden and home decor store and now includes my original artwork! http://www.windsorscourtyard.ca
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.
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.
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.
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.
This is a new painting I’ve donated to The Cocktails for Cancer Fundraiser for Brain Cancer treatment and research. The event happens at the Hunt Club Golf Course in Ottawa Ontario on June 21, 2014.
I call this new painting “Musing” because it feels it maybe something to focus on during a meditation.
Fresh art for spring! We’re warming up in Yellowknife. Everyone looks happy the winter is behind us.
We are using a torch to release gas bubbles from the top coat resin on an original Mary Loos painting.
