Dreaming of Spring

Petite Fleurs
acrylic on 4x6 cradled panels

Spring is taking forever to arrive in Ontario! We take one step forward and two steps back. I take comfort from the arrival of the wild and wonderful geese and the ducks on the creek. But how I long for green and growing things... bright colours and warm breezes...and the chance to enjoy a patch of sunshine sitting outdoors, rather than in. It is coming - in the meantime I paint flowers.

December Morning

8x10 acrylic on canvas

A closer look at one of my pieces from the December show at Gallery 629 in Merrickville. Winter is one of my favourite seasons to express visually. Snowy mornings, misty light, sparkling whites, long shadows, light halos...all inspire! This is a scene looking out my back window onto a neighbours' property - a mystical moment to recreate.

Happy New Year!

Happy 2019! While my posts have been few and far between I have been very productive art-wise. September - December was incredibly full - art classes (mixed media), a solo art show, and then Christmas. Now that January is here I am catching my creative breath, setting a new studio rhythm, and looking ahead to a new year of expression.

Gallery 629 Solo Show 

 The Gallery is closed for the month of January but the online site is
available for browsing my work and that of the other gallery artists.

Christmas Show Invite

December is around the corner. My studio has been a hive of creative pursuit in readiness for this upcoming show. It's exciting - a first gallery show outside of the Yukon!
Ontario has provided lots of inspiration as I move forward: artist friends+ art classes = art community. The now familiar, local landscape, changing seasons, and the beauty of nature fuel my mind with ideas to explore and express. Ontario has become home.

6x12 Acrylic on cradled gallery panel
Once again green and growing things hold my creative interest. I'm on a flower role again - poppies, no less! I'm continuously thinking up new ways to capture them.

Harvest Path

6x6 Oil on cradled panel

Spring is in full swing here. I'm gearing up for a gallery opening in June - details to follow. In the meantime I'm continuing to paint with oils; loving the creamy, blendability of the medium. A remembered scene from my walks in Ontario.
