Evening Path - A Nocturne Painting SOLD

4x4 Acrylic on cradled panel
This week I've been a participant in the Whitehorse Plein Air Festival. For the past four days myself and 19 other artists have been at selected spots painting on site. Tomorrow is our final day, culminating in an evening exhibition of our works at YAW (Yukon Artists at Work - 120 Industrial Drive) in Whitehorse, starting at 5 pm.
This has been a wonderful experience. For the most part the weather has cooperated. This little painting was done as we were wrapping up our first night on site. I had been painting a river scene and as I turned around the evening light exposed this gem of a scene - 10:30 pm. Needless to say, I got straight to it!

Solstice Sketches = A painter's Dozen SOLD

12 4x4 acrylic paintings on cradled panels
The Yukon Art Society will be sharing member's art this July. The opening is Sat July 5th at Arts Underground 5 - 8pm. The theme this year is "Solstice". With all the comings and goings in my household I decided the best thing I could contribute was a series of small acrylic 'sketches'. There are always larger pieces on the go in my studio, however, when life is full of summer fun and family visits I seem to focus best on small paintings. (Click on the picture to see them close up.)
