Just returned a few days ago from a "subject hunting "trip to places such as Tobermory, Manitoulin Island (enjoyed staying with a close friend there one of those evenings), Agawa, Sault St Marie, and Mackinaw Island , with great places in between. Looking forward to working on the canvases from this trip.

Was notified today that the "Featured Artist" section for Artsy Shark was published today, and is being shared on Facebook,Twitter,Google +, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn and StumbleUpon. They asked me to explain how I came to painting, and my background, so I hope people enjoy it. :)

Here is the link to the article:

My newest painting "Ucluelet"  will be in Alton Mill as one of the artworks I am showing in the SOVA ....Southern Ontario Visual Artists exhibition in the Headwaters Gallery from   August 17th to September 11th, 2016.
Opening Reception - Sunday August 21 from 1 - 4pm.

The original painting is oil on canvas and is 24" by 30". When you see the painting in person, all the subtle hues come out at you, and you can "feel" the mist. Absolutely beautiful location on Vancouver Island.


Don't forget to check out the SOVA website.


If you can't make it to the Opening Reception to meet the artists, you would be welcome to visit our studios.

Bye for now. Back to the easel :)
