Harvest Gold

I love the fall colours and peaceful feeling in this painting. The warm sun on the hay bales casting cool shadows. It feels like the work is done and it is time for rest.

Spring Creek Falls

"Spring Creek Falls"
11" x 14"  Oil, framed

This oil painting is for sale in Gallery One Fifty in Sicamous, B.C. until it's seasonal closing on September 15. I painted this based on a photo of Sicamous Creek that I had taken last summer. I was inspired to paint a water scene after taking an acrylic workshop with Graham Flatt. I enjoyed transferring what I had learnt using oil instead of acrylic and am happy with the result.

Early Morning Mist

This sweet little painting was inspired by the misty view on Mara Lake when I got up early to go dragon boat paddling. The lake was shimmering in places and still in others. With the smokey skies lifting a little, this view is a slice of heaven for me. If you are in Sicamous summer, you will have to come out and give dragon boat paddling a try, breath taking in more ways than one! They welcome guests! This group of paddlers are so much fun, you get a good work out with a lot of laughing (join us after for coffee as well).
