Morning Mist on the Pond.JPG

From the morning walk to the pond. This one you really need to see in person. No photo I have taken even closely resembles the colours or the softness that mist can create! _________________________________________

From my favourite road. Mountainview. This paitning was started in 2021, and finally got to where I wanted the light this week!  You could just feel the cool of the day that was hidden deep in those trees, even on the hottest day.

Snow on the Wetland - Progress

24" x 20" Oil on Canvas

Finally some measurable snow this year! The Wetland across from our property was pristine following the storm. Right sets the darks, lights and composition,  and the left builds that cold winter blue with details and colour! First in the series using pathways, with the water being this pathway.

"Standing Alone/Fenced In" - More details

Oil on Canvas 40 x 30

From a field close to the Mill after a winter storm. Building the snow on the limbs and branches on the tree. More layers to come. The tree seemed so dominant and confident, dominating its surroundings. Quite an inspiration in an uncertain world.


September 24, 2022 - Final February 2023!

"Light Waves"

30 x 30 Oil on Canvas

From the same day as Cloud Waves, now at Sunset. One specific day can absolutely have the most defined lighting!

 Bottom photo, first layers, Middle photo, more finishing layers building the waves in the light , Top photo,  the Tree in my initial reference finally makes it to the canvas. Henry. From Charleston Sideroad! Final touches with the building of flight, and some refining in the foreground. What a show Henry enjoyed!

"The Fall of 2020"  36 x 60

The Laneway 20 x 20

 August 15th Left Painting.The beginning. I plan my artworks with a paintbrush, no drawing with charcoal or a pencil. In this case I have started straight off with oil. I use a background colour that will be in the finished artwork, in this case the sky, and then begin finding the composition and shapes by either taking off the paint, or accentuating edges with stronger colour.  In the end, it is similar to a drawing done in charcoal, but no residue that would be left behind from that medium.  Now the trick is to keep all that lovely lighting in actual colours without ruining the composition! Keep you posted with progress as it comes along.
September 2nd. Middle Painting. Progress. Colour, lighting, details begin to define the artwork. Where to go from here???
September 11, 2023.  Right painting. Might be there! And hard to believe, but that session took the longest of all three.
