Beginning  A Bear Painting

I sketched my subjects on a prepared canvas.

I blocked in the main colours of my picture.

Below is my photo reference from the wildlife
sanctuary that I visited this spring.   CHEERS!

to everyone who has supported me over
the past year as I have prepared for my 
show at Pynelogs Cultural Center in 
Invermere, B.C. I enjoyed the opportunity 
to talk with friends and family last night,
and to meet the other artists and patrons
during the evening. My dear friend Violet
came out from Calgary just to attend my 
opening reception. I hope you will stop by
the gallery and peruse the artworks 
displayed there in this, the last show of the
season. The exhibit remains open until
Sunday the 29th of September, 2013.
I have updated my "GALLERY" page 
here on my blog with the paintings from the 
show. Cheers and many thanks everyone!

Vantage Point

During the winter I frequented a spot on the Kootenay River where an elk had fallen through the ice and drown. The elk’s remains provided a feast for the birds of prey in the area. This golden eagle had a great vantage point in order to keep watch over his precious food store.

Don't  forget that my show at Pynelogs Cultural Center in Invermere begins on Tuesday, September 17th. I hope to share some wine and laughs with you on Wednesday, September 18th at the reception from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. Cheers!

            OF GOLD

We've had a lot of rain 
recently in our region. 
While I prefer the sun-
shine to the clouds and
 rain, I do love the 
sunrises, sunsets, and
rainbows that occur 
when our weather 
changes. I snapped this 
photo of a double rainbow 
last week. 

The Columbia wetlands are in the foreground. Cheers!

I really enjoy painting flowers
and these bright orange poppies
are a great contrast against the
green and brown of the flower
bed behind them.

I am making final preparations
for my show at Pynelogs on
September 17th - 29th, 2013.
I hope you will join me for a
glass of wine at the reception
Wednesday, September 18th
from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
