This painting was many months in the making and was featured in my solo show "SEASONS" at Northend Gallery in February. Measuring 32x42 inches, this is by far the largest piece I have painted.
It is comprised of legends and images I have absorbed since living in the the Yukon. It is also a montage of how I like to play with acrylics.

acrylic on canvas 18x24
So many of the winter vistas are charged with light and shadow and hues of a thousand blues. I have sought to capture some of them here, along with the sense of peace and wonder I experience when I encounter scenery such as this.

16x36 Mixed media over gold leaf on cradled panel
This piece is painted on 3 12x16 panels. It is very textural, shimmery, and moody. It is also very hard to capture just right in a photo. I invite you to view it in person at Arts Underground during the Yukon Art Society's Christmas Show which runs until Jan 2014.

I've been exploring more mixed media works along with my regular use of acrylics in painting people, places, and things. In creating art, I still swing between realism and imaginative work. I often will turn from a painting a landscape to something totally new and loose, and let the process dictate the outcome.
I've discovered gold! The results are so satisfying. I enjoy the effects that occur when painting over gold leaf. (This photo just doesn't do this piece justice. It is rich with a gold hue and shine, and very textural.)
At the time I was creating this a dear person in my life was going through great trauma. I was often thinking of her pain - praying she would be comforted and protected. When I called the piece "finished" and took a step back, even I was surprised. It was obvious my subconscious emotions were embedded in this work.
Can you spot anything being "held within the folds"?

This is a sneak peek at one of the paintings that will be featured in my upcoming show. I have been secretly creating with a new medium & surface (ink and Yupo paper) and have enjoyed every minute!
Consider yourself invited to our second group show!

Currently at Arts Underground, Whitehorse, YT.
I recently participated in a plein air group session at Carcross, YT. As artists, we were there to support the natural beauty of the dunes; to capture the sites in various mediums, and in so doing, encourage others to explore the uniqueness and take a second look at preserving the place in its pristine condition.
This is the work I created that day. The wind was wild, as it so often is coming off Bennett Lake. Our bodies and art work were physically sand blasted! It was a great day.
On site at the dunes and with the participating artists.
