Christmas Gifts for the Grandkids

January 2, 2021

I wanted to share an art project dear to my heart. This Christmas was different but I wanted to make a few things memorable for the Grandkids this year. I was pleased that I finished them all in time. I wanted to create a sort of caricature of each grandchild with some of the things they love. Holden loved the lake this summer, found frogs and snakes and caught the biggest fish. Piper loves unicorns,...

Christmas Cheer

December 30, 2020

I would like to tell you the story about how I decided to bring a little Christmas Cheer to the Residents at Princess Court on Christmas Day 2020.  For those that didn’t know, prior to the Pandemic, I was volunteering at Princess Court in Dryden, ON.  I was going in monthly to do art classes with the Residents. I was missing volunteering and I was trying to find a way to do something for the...

The Inukshuk

November 17, 2020

I felt I needed to tell the story about how this painting came about. There is something about how it came about and the meanings I am putting with it. First the inspiration.  Back in the spring, I was driving home from the cabin in the rain, I had already seen a moose and something else, when I came around a curve and up on rock cut was an inukshuk with two ravens sitting on...

Summer 2020 was pretty decent.

October 29, 2020

I had a wonderful summer in so many ways. Our children and grandchildren were able to spend time out at the cabin and with everything that was going on with Covid 19, I know how fortunate we were to be able to be together when so many were not able to connect with family. The cabin is our safe place and nature is it’s own kind of healer. We spent time in and on the...

Truely how I feel !

October 15, 2020

I have been looking at this poor torn flag for a few weeks. First I didn’t have a ladder to get up there to change it, then it was weather. Today I had everything I needed and I got it done in the cold with a few snow flakes coming down. It bothers me to see our flag so torn up. So this got me thinking when I drove up to replace this flag. I...

Changes

April 20, 2020

I was telling a friend about the painting and she suggested I look into what the meanings might be in the colours I chose, the lotus and the trees. I will offer up a little information about myself at this time. I generally paint pictures from some sort of reference, a photograph or another painting. Just to give me the basics to paint from. With some of my paintings in the last few years I...

April Newsletter – Different Times

April 20, 2020

WARNING, I’m going to be very honest and vulnerable,THIS MIGHT GET A LITTLE WOO WOO. (skip ahead if itʼs not for you)This whole pandemic issue sent me on a bit of a roller coaster ride. I started out the month thinking I was going to host some fun paint classes and ended up with an empty (of clients) studio. When the stay at home order came, I knew I had a ton of projects, new...
