    MINI WORKS

    I have started a new series of small pieces as sketches for my larger paintings. I love the freedom of small works. They can become so playful.

  • 2013 CALENDARS

    In November, 2012 we had a resident staying at the studio, Shelley Harrison, who wanted to put together a collaborative calendar. She asked Kyle and I if we would participate. Of course we were happy to be involved. These are the five small painting sketching I did for the calendar.

    MAKING PLANS FOR THE NEW YEAR

    2012 is almost over and that means it is time to start making plans for the new year. I am excited to start building a new body of work in watercolours and a few new wax pieces as well. Here are two new paintings which I started recently. I thought I would try working in all warm and all cool colours as an experiment.

    ETSY SHOP

        Despite my initial reaction to the idea of selling on Etsy I recently decided that it is probably a good idea … so I went ahead and made a shop. I must say it does feel pretty good to see all the work in one gallery together. I can really see the connections between the bodies of work, plus I have the added fun of seeing how other people feel about the work.

    ENJOYING THE SUMMER AND MAKING SMALL WORKS

          Yesterday I took a little time to visit a couple places around the County. I stopped at the Lavender Farm to see all the plants in bloom and at the Oeno Gallery to take a walk through the Sculpture Garden. Then I went home and started some small works for an upcoming art fair in Kingston.

    ABTRACT EXHIBITION

        The last few months have flew by without much new work being produced. The studio has been busy with residents and I had a lot of work on my plate with teaching. But summer has arrived and with it a new exhibition. Last weekend was the opening for the Blizzmax Gallery Abstract Painting show. It was a great turn out. I had four pieces in the show included three from the Modern Fuel Exhibition and one new painting. I am really enjoying these watercolours!

  • WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

    As much as I love the scent of bees wax I really needed a break, so I started working on some watercolour paintings. I love the freedom of watercolour painting and the graphic quality they produce.

  • REFLECTING

    It has been awhile since I have had an exhibition that has required as much work as this upcoming show with Kyle. It has me thinking about the last show I did with this much preparation which was at the solo exhibition called “Fill in the Spaces” I had at The Artel in Kingston. I really liked the work that came out of that exhibition. The wax drawings that I had done are definitely becoming a more prominent part of my work recently.
