New print series added to etsy

I have just added a new series of reproduction prints to my etsy shop. These are from my “cottage” series based on my time at my cottage in Rondeau Provincial Park, Ontario Canada. They are available in 7×7 (matted to 10×10) and 12×12 (matted to 16×16). I print these images using high quality, archival materials.


Dreaming of Summer

The Way Home, 16x16 oil on claybordSpring has come early this year in the Pacific Northwest. That has gotten me thinking of my cottage in Ontario Canada. Of course it’s something like -5 deg F over there so I can’t go, but I can paint it! This is my interpretation of one of the many martin houses that have been erected along the beach. This one borders a cottage path to the beach. Enjoy, and think of summer!

Finally more paintings

OK, I know it’s been a while, but I finally got around to photographing these two recent paintings. The first is another in my “At the Market Series”, Spring Onions, 36×24, oil on gessobord. It’s a bit different than some of the others I’ve done. I’m enjoying the curves.  The second is the latest in my cottage series, 16×16 inches, oil on claybord. I’m enjoying painting these. It reminds me of summer and times at my cottage. This painting is now available through my etsy shop. Now off to take advantage of the absolutely wonderful weather we’re having here today.

More cottage fun

I thought I’d take advantage of the absolutely beautiful weather we’ve been having and photograph my two latest creations. They’re both 16×16, oil on cradled claybord. These are based on photos I took at my cottage in Ontario last summer. I’m rather liking the way the bird house turned out. I’m currently working on a 36×24 painting of spring onions.

“Waiting for the Wind”, sailboat painting now available on Etsy

Waiting for the WindMy original oil painting, “Waiting for the Wind”, is now available for purchase in my etsy shop. It is 16×16 inches on 1.5 inch cradled hardbord, with walnut stained sides. Enjoy!

Painting again!

sail boat Between the weather being so nice out here and since I’ve stared applying for my summer shows, my mind has been drifting toward summer. I’ve had a need to paint “summer.” So I painted this cute little painting of a sail boat. The inspiration for this was my last trip to my cottage at Rondeau Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada. I was going to paint this on a 32×32 inch canvas but instead decided to use a 16×16 inch gessobord I had handy. The smaller size required me to simplify the design. So far I’m liking it. I think it’s nearly done. I’ll know more once it dries. I think I’ll get some more boards this size in my next order.

My Yellowstone

Almost two years ago I traveled through Yellowstone National Park on my way back from the Sweet Pea Festival in Bozeman, MT where I took the photo on which I based this painting. I’ve been working on it off and on for weeks! I kept getting interrupted by other work I needed to do to get ready for my upcoming art festivals. I’m happy its FINALLY done!!!
