This is a watercolor painted by my mother who is also an artist Grace (the model )is a watercolorist too
What fun we have here, our coastal artistic community we are like bids of a feather....but some of us fly south ... A Grace:)

Wedding Painting

This is a painting a did a few years ago one of my first i entered it in a competition and to my surprize i won thirdplace( provincial ribbon)
I think that event led me to keep painting and I'm happy to have the opportunity to continue
My mother got third place last spring and she has been painting ever since

This painting was the one I traded

It measures36x36 oil over acrylic

First Snow

Last night I went outside and was taken with how beautiful the first snow always is . I forget from season to season what things look like.
So I decided to take pictures it was dark so the lighting is strange
I finally did manage to paint I had a trade of art to make good on
I guess i'd been to busy to settle down long enough to paint it I'll post a picture of before I trade her
I'm receiving for exchange a pastel work by Suzanne Dallaire(I'm very happy to have one of her works) I'll also post a pic of it and Sheri Burhoe's painting as well
I found a great spot for it Sheri it's perfect :)
I got some good news this morning , HeronbayGalery sold Full Bodied and also Mr Georges Goguen offered me an exhibition spot at the Aberdeen Cutural Center in Moncton I accepted ,it is in January 2007
I have ideas for some new work I'm getting excited about trying something different Posted by Picasa

Haven't had tmuch time to paint or to blog I've discovered a new on line gallery that may be of interest to some it's called Saatchi Gallery
There is place to blog there and a chat line for artist I'll add the link soon
