Fall in Vancouver

Changing Seasons 8" x 8"

It has been a very grey, rainy fall here in Vancouver. Maybe this painting will help to brighten things up a bit.

Available on Etsy.

An Experiment

Pruduct-Collage_H

A while ago I added some of my artwork to Red Bubble – a site that applies artwork to various products such as mugs, clothing, stationery and throw pillows. I haven’t told anyone about it before now, because I’m really not sure how I feel about it. Does having my artwork on a mug or sofa cushion devalue the original? Or does anyone really want this stuff?

This is all a big experiment and self-promotion has never been my strength. But if I’m going to advertise, I guess this is the season to do it. So here’s my gift guide:

Various products: Red Bubble
Prints: Imagekind
Original paintings: Etsy

Happy browsing!

I really liked my previous chicken painting, so when I shipped it off to a customer last week I had a strong urge to paint another one. Here he is!

Sunny

This is Sunny. He’s my daughter’s best friend. I painted this for her as a birthday surprise. If it wasn’t for Isabelle’s love of horses, I don’t think I would be painting them now. The hours I spend with her and the horses are always fresh in my mind when I sit down to paint. As your kids grow, you assume that you will show them things and teach them, but it ends up being the other way around.

And here they are – my favourite girl and her favourite horse!

I am not done with the horses quite yet, but I thought I’d mix it up a bit with some chickens.

This is #6 in my 8″ x 8″ horse painting series. I am ready to work on something bigger now, but I might revisit this series at some point.
