Green Eyes

Green Eyes 11″ x 14″

I’ve always liked drawing and painting cats. I’ve gotten to know a few regulars while walking through my neighbourhood. This painting was inspired by a friendly cat named Patrick who likes to get underfoot as you walk down his block.

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.

Walking around the neighbourhood, I see so many beautiful flowers. When it comes to painting though, I wanted to focus on the leaves. It’s interesting how there seems to be a pattern within the tangle. They’re all trying to grow as high as they can before drooping down. All doing their best to maximize on their sun exposure. Not an easy thing this year, with our cold, late spring.

I have added a bunch of prints to my Etsy site. Have a look!

I went a little abstract with the background. Not sure if I like it…

If I name a chicken after you (accidentally or on purpose), please don’t be offended. It doesn’t mean that you look or act or remind me of a chicken. Actually I find most of them to be quite beautiful. On the other hand, if you would like one of these chickens to have your name, please let me know!

This one’s for sale on Etsy.

Chickens

Chickens

Betty & Veronica 8″ x 8″

Chickens. Not a very exciting name for a painting of chickens. This naming problem isn’t going to go away, as I have a few more chicken paintings planned. I could either number them (chicken 1, chicken 2, chicken 3), which would be really boring. Or I could just give them names, which is much more fun and adds a little personality. So, let me introduce you to Betty and Veronica.

This one is for sale on Etsy.

Barn at Southlands Farm

Barn at Southlands Farm 24" x 36"

Barn at Southlands Farm 24″ x 36″

It’s unusual to see this barn without a bunch of kids out front and people wandering around. Southlands Heritage Farm is a community farm, open to the public – a great place if you need a break from the city, without leaving the city.
