Howe Sound

I did this painting of Howe Sound for a couple who bought a painting several years ago. The previous one was of Jericho Park and English Bay – a view from the other side of the water.

Here is the older one:

Siamese Cat

No sudden movements – he’s ready to pounce.

Crow #1

Crow 8″ x 8″

This is the time of the year when you see young crows learning to fly. They are so vulnerable – usually sitting helplessly on the ground until they figure it out. I watched one little guy get off the ground, only to slam into the side of a parked car. Kind of comical once I realized he was okay.   

Winter Bales

Winter Bales 18" x 14"

After finishing my Fine Arts degree, I stopped painting for several years. The job I took to pay the bills had nothing to do with art. I kept on drawing in my spare time, but without the direction and studio space provided by art class, I did not paint. I can’t remember what inspired me to pick up a brush again, but I do remember what I painted. It was an awful picture of hay bales that I did on cardstock. It was my first attempt at working with acrylics, and it did not turn out well. As bad as the painting was, it obviously sparked my interest in painting again. After practicing for a few years, I now love acrylics and I am much happier with my latest attempt at hay bales.
