Dear Friends, January 30, 2018 My latest commission finally completed. "Beauty on Aberdeen, Medicine Hat", 42 x 30 inches. Medicine Hat Commission. When my husband came home from work last night and looked at the painting, he commented on how he liked the work and also mentioned he saw a large "X" on the bottom of the right-hand corner. I looked at the artwork again in complete surprise. "Well that's the reflection of the light hitting the door," I said.
Dear Friends, January 4, 2018 One of the things I find most interesting is to the experience of capturing a physical bricks and mortar building in a painting for a client. For this person has a story to tell. Each time he/she views the final painting, these memories associated with the bricks, pavement or landscape illicits this deep connection.
Dear Friends, May 31,2017 Everyone is so crazy busy these days. I often think that technology is a hindrance, not a help and is making our lives frantic with all the pressures of posting on social media platforms. Although its a necessary part of the workplace, I find it ever more increasingly important to take time to do the things, hobbies and activities I actually LOVE.
Dear Friends, May 24, 2017 It`s been awhile since posting so I thought I would show-off my flower painting we will use in next weekend`s Acrylic Experimental Workshop. We will be reviewing many advantages of using Acrylic mediums and additives while painting. Once you understand the properties behind some of the mediums, it will open up a wide variety of ideas in your painting. If you have ever wanted to learn more about acrylics, this workshop will be for you.
