Inspired by my trip back home to Victoria, B.C. These lovelies were everywhere! This painting sucked so badly yesterday that I all but threw it in the garbage. I wrote the day off as a total waste but then something happened and I pulled this out of the ugliness.  I have said before that I never abandon my paintings but I really thought that this one was beyond help. Now I am thinking that this might be a new direction for me to experiment with.

So glad that I was able to take a few days to fill the well in my beautiful hometown.  Getting away from this snow for even a few days was good for the soul.

Art At The Highlevel Diner February and March

I am the featured artist at The Highlevel Diner in Edmonton for February and March 2015.

It is my third time showing my art at this great establishment and I couldn’t be happier. No one needs an excuse to eat here but this is a pretty good one!  Their support of local artists is beyond compare.  Thank you Diane, Kim and Debbie!

And the stately lilies stand Fair in the silvery light, Like saintly vestals, pale in prayer; Their pure breath sanctifies the air, As its fragrance fills the night.

Summer Garden

Dreaming of summer gardens and lots of colour … I’ve had enough of all this white stuff ( and I mean the SNOW when I say that, not my black and white paintings).  I know it is only February and I have a way to go but I am going to Victoria next week so I get to see some green and flowers like these ones my Dad sent me. (I’m never sure if he is sending photos of  inspiration or he is just trying to be cruel, ha, ha!)


Aren’t they wonderful!

Something that I do through my Instagram account and my Facebook page is show my work in progress. I thought I might start to  share these WIP photos to my blog posts as well. I hope you find them interesting.

Have a bright and colourful day!
