Beginnings

Vaseux Lake in January
It was a surprise to me that paintings do not often begin with a swipe of colour across a page or canvas. Some do but, most don't. Many artists use reference photographs they or a friend have snapped.  The photo inspires and can even be combined with another photo or two to evolve into a painting that exists in the artists head and heart. Special colours, light, emotion take shape and a painting is created.
Vaseux Lake Reference Photo

I paint with watercolours and have found, with experience, that my painting usually starts with the reference photo nearby inspiring colours and shapes, but over time as the painting evolves, I refer less and less to the picture and more and more paint from my head, my memory, or even my heart. I believe my best paintings are those that tell a story. Maybe that is because I am a writer. I often describe feelings as colours in my writing; perhaps the colours in my paintings expand on the feelings the painting evokes in my heart: wonder, excitement, tranquillity, serenity - and the list goes on. My painting and my writing connect at some point and truly, I have my laptop on one end of my desk and my paints on the other - long and narrow so I can zip my chair from one media to the next with the spin of the wheels on the office chair.

Ready; Set; Go

With a year of experience under my belt, I am amazed at how much I still enjoy playing with pots of paint. Art is a somewhat cultured statement when I often see the results as a child might view their fingerpainting picture - wonderful in the eyes of Mom but MINE, all mine!! Well, now that I have been at it for over a year, I am finally ready to let some go. For sale - as in, for you if you are interested! See some paintings below. Many can be made into art cards for your pleasure as well. So fun you stopped by! Please feel free to return often!

All paintings are unframed and unmatted. Shipping is not included and will be calculated at the time of order. Payment can be arranged by email at this time - I will get more sophisticated soon!!
