My latest painting from a Jericho Beach, Vancouver, walk in December.
This is my first Blog! It's kind of like a diary of what I'm up to. So here goes.
The year began with a few group shows. The first one was at the Seymour Art Gallery in Deep Cove, where I showed "High Expectations". I am currently showing "Sunlit Meadow" at Mission Arts Council and a couple of architectual paintings at the Federation of Canadian Artists ( FCA) Student show on Granville Island, Vancouver, city of the 2010 Olympics. The student show is of works by artists who have taken workshops from the FCA during 2009. I happen to be lucky to take a workshop from Mike Svob and Robert Genn!
Right now I'm excitedly painting new Acrylic paintings from reference photos taken over the fall and winter - two of my favourite seasons. Yes, even in rainy Vancouver.
I find that the rain accentuates the true shapes and colours in nature. The winter also creates more drama.
