Fall in Vancouver

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.

We found these fields of wildflowers during a summer hike at the Sun Peaks Ski Resort. We had to navigate through a herd of cattle who were enjoying them just as much as we were.

The less I paint, the less I want to paint.  The more I paint, the more I want to paint.

Thankfully, the second phrase describes my current condition.

Not really into selfies, but here’s my hand.

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

Autumn is my favourite painting season. My attempts at capturing the golden light, long shadows and intense colours are not always successful, but I have a lot of fun trying.

The season always feels too short for me to take it all in and explore as much as I’d like. For me, the magic of painting is that it allows me to fully immerse myself in a place, to explore the colours, textures and mood for as long as I want. Hopefully, in the end, I have a piece of art that captures the character of that place or moment. (Sometimes it actually works).

 

Same painting, different size.

I decided to use my tiny painting as a study for this larger version. I’m happy to be  finding some painting time after a busy December and January.

Since many of these will be given as Christmas gifts, I decided to make some that are appropriate for the season.

Once again I am working on these little 3 inch paintings, perfect for gift giving. I really enjoy them because they are quick and give me a break from my larger “serious” paintings. They remind me that painting should be fun. They also work as little studies for large paintings later on. I’ll be focusing on these until Christmas.
