I’m already seeing lots of these guys and it’s not even spring yet!

Here are my birds (and my tree) on display at Stock Home Design at 3060 West Broadway, Vancouver.

Here’s something to brighten up our grey winter. And I finally remembered to take a photo of my work at the Corner Cup.

Evening Ride

This scene reminds me of another time on this path, when my daughter’s horse took off at a full gallop until they were out of sight. She managed to do a u-turn and brought him back, still going at full speed. As he turned a sharp corner, she decided it was a good time to let herself fall off, as he was heading for the street. Everything turned out fine – no major injuries and the silly horse got home safely.

Yikes! My painting time seems to have disappeared lately. I am finally posting this second sky painting and I have something new on my easel.

Last weekend I hung several paintings at Performance Works on Granville Island. My work will be there until June 2nd.

Another Tree?

Yes, it’s another tree. I love painting trees, but I am quickly running out of names for these paintings. My titles tend to be descriptive, so how many ways can I possibly describe a yellow maple in the fall? Or an orange oak? I am open to suggestions.

I’ve zoomed in on a detail here to show the brushwork more clearly. I kind of like the composition I accidentally made with my cropping.

I want to thank everyone at Hycroft for having my work up this month, and to everyone who attended the opening on Sunday. Great to meet so many nice people!

Come for coffee at Corner Cup

Green to Yellow 24″ x 18″

It is time for another show at Corner Cup, my local community coffee shop (4th and Blenheim, Vancouver). This painting and several others will be on display for the next month or so. If you stop by to see the artwork, chances are you might see me or a member of my family sitting and snacking – we spend far too much time there.
