This was painted on location. It was a beautiful Fall day out at Christie Beach on Georgian Bay. My girlfriend Deirdre and I had a great day of painting outside, followed by a late lunch at the Thornbury Bakery. Heaven!
This is one of the many bridges in our area that crosses the Beaver River. I have been wanting to paint the Black Bridge for a while now, as I pass over it most days.
Salmon and trout come up this river to their spawning grounds in the fall. Right now you can see many large fish (some salmon over two feet long!) fighting the currents to swim to the upper parts of the river. It is an amazing sight to behold.
I had a chance to record a promotional TV spot for Rogers Cable today about the upcoming art tour. Nerve wracking, but fun all at the same time! If you are in the Thornbury-Clarksburg area this weekend, I will be painting on site at Interior Motives. My work will be shown at both Interior Motives as well as the Loft Gallery. It should be fun!
I am an artist working in acrylic paint on canvas. Having lived in a variety of locations in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Colorado and Ontario, I have been constantly surrounded by amazing, diverse landscapes. It is these views that I take my inspiration from when painting. This blog provides an outlet to show some of my work as it is being created. I am currenty having a grand old time painting full time, living with my husband, son and one stinky dog in Ontario.
