Pas de Deux

For my love of dancing I created "Pas de Deux", 20 x 26 watercolor.   Experimenting on mylar for this painting has opened up a whole new world for me.  If you look closely at the texture in the artwork, you will notice how the paint puddled on the surface before it dried allowing time for the colors to granulate.  Similar effect you get when paint on yupo, so much fun.

Hugs and Kisses

This 22 x 28 watercolor is painted on Yupo paper.  Yupo is a unique synthetic surface that prevents absorption of the paint thus making this technique quite challenging.  Next, I will try acrylic inks on Yupo, stay tuned...

Etosha


Etosha is a tryptich that was painted on three canvases, each measuring 12"x 48".  Thank you Norm Antonio for the reference photograph.  I'm looking forward to submitting this piece into juried shows.  One day I hope to visit Africa and see these wonderful wild beast with my own eyes.

The Boathouse

Every September, I attend the Central Ontario Art Association,  special painting event, at Geneva Park near Orillia Ontario.  I took this photograph of the boathouse, where the oil painters set up.  Its reflections from the dock amazed me....

Harvest Moon and Christmas Waltz

Two more acrylic commissions for my friend Brian that were raffled at his dance before the holidays. Combining my love of dance with my passion to create. A little late posting these, a lot of fun painting these.  Certainly a lot of complements and encouragement.
