It has begun. The assembly line of tiny paintings for Christmas. A very slow, one woman assembly line.

I was hoping to come up with a catchier title for this painting, but as I worked on it, I had a few problems. I think it’s best to chalk it up to practice and name it accordingly.

I wouldn’t mind spending my summer here. I’ll have to settle for painting it instead…

 

 

Three Chickens

Chickens – triptych 10″ x 30″

Chickens are such funny little animals, yet they always look so serious. They can also be frightening. Just ask my brother who was once traumatized by our Grandma’s rooster. He learned that roosters can run faster than little boys and he didn’t escape without a scratch or two.

In other news:
I have several paintings on display at the Port Moody Art Centre until the end of December. I had a great time at the opening last night and met so many nice people. A big thank you to the organizers, staff and fellow artists at the Port Moody Art Centre.

Fun at the Port Moody Art Centre.

Winter Bales

Winter Bales 18" x 14"

After finishing my Fine Arts degree, I stopped painting for several years. The job I took to pay the bills had nothing to do with art. I kept on drawing in my spare time, but without the direction and studio space provided by art class, I did not paint. I can’t remember what inspired me to pick up a brush again, but I do remember what I painted. It was an awful picture of hay bales that I did on cardstock. It was my first attempt at working with acrylics, and it did not turn out well. As bad as the painting was, it obviously sparked my interest in painting again. After practicing for a few years, I now love acrylics and I am much happier with my latest attempt at hay bales.
