This is an older painting that had gotten damaged; and while I was repairing it, I ended up repainting most of it. It's a painting of my memories canoeing on Nanoose Bay with John Holland who stayed with my family during the years we lived on Vancouver Island in Canada. We were lucky to know so many amazing people in Canada. This painting belongs to my brother Steven, so I tried not to change it too much while I was repainting it!
Its been awhile since I posted a new work! It has taken some time to remodel- and get used to- my new studio, but I love it. When I first moved into the space many years ago, I didn't have the time to set up a proper studio, so now this space is very organized and user-friendly. Hopefully now, my blog postings will be more frequent.
News Flash! I will be sharing my studio with Nancy Hall, amazing assemblage artist who keeps finding fascinating objects to use in her sculptures. I often sketch them so images of her objects sometimes end up in my paintings. Luckily, she says she is also inspired by my paintings, so I guess its a fair deal! Perhaps we'll try some collaborations...
I also did a small gouache painting of Joy Ride (see earlier post), but the larger version is different- more so then I expected. My work is for sale, please email me for inquiries.
