Graceful Tree

Graceful Tree
Acrylic on canvas 12x16
I was in Peter John Reid's workshop recently and painted this tree.  I used a different brand of paint and approached the painting differently than I usually do.  I'm pretty sure that I snapped this photo at  Rideau Hall in Ottawa.

Sailboat - SOLD

Acrylic on canvas 8x16
A sailboat waiting to be taken out on Lake Ontario.  Not my usual subject matter but thought I should give it a go.

Holiday Flowers - SOLD

Holiday Flowers
Watercolour on double white mat approx 20x16
This painting was done in a class with my first watercolour teacher.  I decided to change up the colour combination from the traditional pinks and reds.
ps - I changed the comment process to hopefully make it easier to post a comment.  Please let me know if it is working.  Thanks V.A.!

Rooms for Rent

Rooms for Rent
Acrylic on canvas 18x18
I loved the photo I took of this one and wanted to paint it for a while.  It would be nice to paint this environment outside sometime.
