Geneva Park Forest

I painted these two 8x10 acrylics at Geneva Park this past September when the COAA had their annual conference.  It was a beautifull plen air experience and Geneva Park is a wonderfull scenic locale.  Thank you to Allison Robichaud for his direction and advise, I will always be a better painter.  If you want to view these paintings, they will be on display at the Ingersoll Library beginning October 6, 2011

Looking Back

I painted "Looking Back" using the pouring technique.  It was a great learning experience and I thoroughly enjoyed this technique.

Recently I had the opportunity to take a three day workshop from the most talented Kathie Wright, at The Southhampton Art School. Together we created several outstanding pieces for which I will be adding the finishing touches this afternoon.  I will post the end products soon.  Thank you Kathie!!

This spring I painted this Trio of Trillium's, feeling patriotic to Canada and specifically my province of Ontario. I've always loved the blanket of trilliums waving in the fields in the early spring.  I've had the three watercolors professionally, archival, framed in black and they look wonderful.  My colleagues have encouraged me and agree that I ended with great  results.

This portrait "My Friend" is one of my first, the meduim is watercolor, 8 by 10. I tried to capture her character and personality as oppossed to photorealism.  My motto to photorealism is, "I might as well frame the photo if I want it to look like the photo"
