Welcome to my world of painting and creating…

December has arrived with a fresh snow, advent calendars, and the anticipation and joy that the Holiday Season brings to everyone.

Christmas Hush, acrylic on paper, 12″x15″ framed, $125

While I love snow, snow-filled scenes, and snowmen, I often paint out of season.  Most of my snow scenes were completed in the summer and quite often my florals and sunnier scenes are borne out of the depths of the long and cold nights of January. Keep checking My Paintings for more additions over the next couple months…

My latest painting, A Night in Bordeaux (36″x48″, $750), is part of a special exhibit at the Holcim Gallery in the FirstOntario Arts Centre Milton 

… I am also so very excited to know that people from distant lands have visited my website over the past month, and a few have even written to me about their favourite paintings.  In this season of giving and sharing, I thank you for your kind wishes!

As usual, I will continue to post news of my latest art escapades in Easel Tales.   Read the latest posts, which includes an introduction to my “donc-le-papier” style of painting, a technique I have developed over the years, some of which have sold as soon as they have been hung…  

SOLD! Parade I (Parade Series, using the donc-le-papier technique)

I have two paintings done in the “donc-le-papier” style, hanging (and now sold) in the 31st Art in the Workplace exhibition at McMaster Innovation Park, 105-175 Longwood Rd S. in Hamilton, Ontario.  For a peek at the artwork in this exhibit, and information about hours and location, click here.

The Niagara Shores Artists have an exhibition at the Beamsville Library in the Fleming Centre (5020 Serena Dr, Beamsville, ON L0R 1B8) during November and December, 2019.

If you find yourself in the Niagara Region, be sure to visit the Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre (247 Ricardo St., Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON), where I display paintings on a regular basis.
