Cold on the River - SOLD

"Cold on the River, Port Alberni", 11 x 14 In, Oil on Museum Board
Because of some ongoing issues, I have not been painting at the rate and intensity that I have for so many years. So I thought that rather than not posting at all, I would post some older work. This is a painting of a a town in British Columbia. It was sold years ago at a show on the East Coast where it won a prize.

I want to thank everyone who has followed my blog over the last three years. I have found both friendship and support from you! I wish you all the best for the New Year and that we will all continue to find our way as artists--wherever our paths lead.

Thank you!

Red Rose - SOLD

"Red Rose", 12 x 9 In, Oil on Canvas Board"
Do I dare post this? Any notion of perfection has gone. It is raw and not trying to be anything--abstract, realistic--neither. My neighbor told me that it is actually getting lighter now earlier in the evening, though the solstice is not until the 22nd. He also said that the morning would continue to get darker until early January.

Two Red Roses

"Two Red Roses", 12 x 9 In, Oil on Canvas Panel
This is another experiment in abstraction. Doing these I am continually reminded of the George Bernard Shaw quote at the top of my blog!

Pink Rose - SOLD

Thank you everyone for your advice on abstract painting. You can see I'm finding my way slowly. It so good to experiment with throwing any idea of perfection to the winds--very freeing.

Yellow Rose - SOLD

"Yellow Rose", 9 x 9 In, Oil on Canvas Board
This painting goes one step further on my road to abstraction. Its funny how easy it is to revert to the known. To take the leap towards something different--that's not so easy for me.
