Spring is Just Around the Corner

Tulip Medley- Acrylic on Canvas- 24" x24"
Spring and tulips are one and the same for me. I think it's time to buy myself a lovely bouquet and start painting some spring themes. The sun is shining so bright today, it feels like spring is around the corner!
I can actually see the gravel on the road . In no time the tulips in the garden will be emerging from their winter slumber. I can't wait!

Windswept Pines

Painting in Progress- Windswept Pines- Acrylic on Canvas
Well the last two weeks I spent in bed with a terrible cold. It sure did knock the stuffing out of me. I finally felt better a few days ago to start painting again. The winter landscape has changed a lot this week because it has been warming up and the rain is washing all the snow away. It sure does feel like spring today! Yesterday I took up a painting that I started a few months ago. I hope to get it finished to a place that I feel it's done. These two pines are on one of our favourite trails above the gravel pit. I love their windswept shape and that they have survived on the edge of the cliff with out falling down.

Painting Accepted into "Best of Grey County " Show

Dancing Light in the Pines- Acrylic on Canvas- 24" x24"
I am so thrilled! Just got a confirmation that one of my painting's - "Dancing Light in the Pines" was accepted into the "Best of Grey County" Art show. This a great start to the year. We artists have a hard time tooting our own horn, but  if we want some recognition we need to let the world know of our accomplishments. Still it is always better when someone else does it for you.

The Snow Storm Came and Went

Painting in Progress- Acrylic on canvas
Well the snow storm came and went. It always amazes me the next day observing how much snow fell in such a short period of time. The snow is now hip depth in the woods. Impossible to traverse now our walks are restricted to the driveway. I have many new pictures to inspire me to create new paintings. I have been working on a new winter woods painting on the largest canvas yet- "36 x 60". Trying to capture the depth and light has been a challenge. So here is my work in progress.

Snow and More Snow

Sold- Retired Under the Cedar Trees

Brandy and Bailey in the Deep Snow
Well we just got dumped with another 12 inches of snow again last night. Living in the country in the north you get used to all the snowfalls. The dogs love it! And I have to admit that a fresh snowfall on the pines is so beautiful. It has been a few weeks now that we haven"t been able to walk in the woods because of the snow depth. I still have a lot of snow scenes to paint......here is our neighbours old retired tractor under a cedar tree.
