Painting #240 - I like this little gem! The ochre and purple compliment each other nicely. On to my next small piece ... Which colour scheme shall I choose next?

Painting #239 - I'm continuing with my small paintings. I used an analogous colour scheme of blue, green and purple. I like the roots in the foreground and continue to enjoy the freedom I feel while painting these small pieces.

Painting #238 - I'm painting a few small pieces as they are good for gifts. I enjoyed the freedom I felt doing this painting ... perhaps because of its size??

Painting #237 - I was playing around with inks and this is a photo transfer of the same piece I did on watercolour paper (which I like better). I have great memories of New Hamburg's fall fair when I was I kid and that's what I tried to capture.

Painting #236 - I began this painting when the weather started to change and a cold chill was in the air. The snow hadn't come but I knew it was on our doorstep!

Painting #235 - This was a commissioned piece and was a lot of fun to do because I knew the person it was for. Today is her birthday and I feel that she is a gift of grace to our world.

Painting #234 - In this painting I wanted to capture the beauty of the land as the season changed. Autumn is a colourful time of year and an inspiration for me.

Again, I added so branches and leaves in the foreground, which provides more interest and depth to the painting.

I decided to paint some bush branches in the foreground. I think it gives the painting more depth.

I decided to change a few of my paintings that have been in my inventory for a while. In this painting I added some warm coloured leaves to represent the change of season. I also added some "jewels" - their shine really catches my eye!

Painting #233 - This was a commissioned piece, which really pushed me because of its size and "trying to get it right" for my clients. Unfortunately, I didn't get a good photo before it went to its new home!

Painting #232 - I don't think this painting is finished. I'm experimenting with skies because I have a commissioned sky painting. I struggle with leaving the canvas so "simple" ... why do I want to see more? I like the calmness presented here but a part of me is saying, "so what?". I need help ...

Painting #230 - I'm participating in a show called Cultivation of Art at Vales Greenhouse in Black Diamond from June 23-25th. I thought my body of work should include a tractor. These little red guys are hard to find so I used an existing picture I had that was taken by a colleague. Hope to see you at the show!
