Ski season is upon us!  Here is a painting of one of our local ski hills on the Niagara Escarpment, called the Georgian Peaks Ski Club.

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year.

Late Afternoon Loree Forest

I am excited to announce that I have launched my new website,  Check it out if you have a chance.  For some of you who have been following my blog, you may experience an interrupted feed, as I switched my blog address to from the above address. You may need to sign up to follow my blog again to get regular updates.  I hope that helps.

I used Foliosnap to create and host my website.  After doing a lot of research, I found they had the best layout, design features, ease of use and price point on the market for what I was looking for.  So far, I am very happy with the product.

Early Snow

Acrylic on Canvas


You may have noticed, that I have a love of vibrant colour.  That's what drives me to paint.  I just LOVE colours.  I often decide on a colour palette before I even choose the subject matter. 

So now I am painting winter scenes.  The skiers and boarders are arriving in our area, and that's what people like to see in the galleries.  I can't blame them - I'm all over everything winter right now.  So how do I incorporate colour into winter scenes?  Well, that's just the quandry I face. I can always ease off on the colour, go with more subtle ones, more greys etc.  - but I don't want to!  I guess I will just have to see what I come up with over the coming months...who says snow has to be white?

Winter is Here

Acrylic on Canvas


I am starting to get in the winter/ Christmas mood. We had some lovely snowfall yesterday, and hopefully the ski hills will be open soon! Just need a little more of the white stuff and some cooler temperatures...
