Spring Fever

Lace Cap Beauty  Acrylic on Canvas 16" x16"

Here is another floral painting that I just finished. I have wanted to paint this subject for over a year. In our Cambridge garden we had a beautiful Hydrangea bush that would start out with pure white petals. After a week or so the petals would gradually change to these beautiful pastel shades. I took  a few pictures but loved this cropped version the best.

Spring Has Sprung

Apple Blossom Delight  Acrylic On Canvas 24"x 24"
It has been one long winter this year. Last week I started painting some Spring themes. I figure if I start painting spring flowers the season will arrive faster. I am looking forward to our wild apple orchard in bloom. I love the soft pink blush and vivid colouring in the veins of the blooms. The assorted greens of the foliage is so fresh and welcoming after a long winter season.

New Painting- Old Cedar in Winter

New painting in Progress- Old Cedar in Winter
 Hi Everyone! I am still inspired to paint winter scenes. This very old cedar sits on our property beside the barn. I love looking up into this tree because of it's huge canopy.

This is a new painting that is going to be in the new "ART MAP" this year. It is a wonderful brochure that showcases artists and galleries and places of interest all over the Grey/ Bruce / Southern Georgian Bay / Manitoulin Island and area.  The brochure will be available in May through many tourism offices in the region or you can view it on line at www.theartmap.com . If you are travelling up north check out the many galleries and studios. I have scheduled a Studio Tour the week of June 12- June 19, Open 10:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m.
The Glory of Autumn
