Moose Marsh

3782 -Moose Marsh Acrylic on Canvas 24 x 24 inches SOLD In the fall of 2019, after dropping off paintings at the Algonquin Visitors Centre for the ECOAA, Mystery of the Park exhibit, we stopped on Hwy 60 with a huge crowd of people to take photos of a moose family in the marshy area south of the highway. They seemed undisturbed by the attention and I was able to get a number of great shots of them. It’s one thing to capture a single moose in the wild but to have the thrill of an entire family was a once in a lifetime experience. Moose Marsh was created to enter in the 2020 ECOAA Mystery of the Park exhibit that will be held October 2-November 1, 2020. Click on this link...

3780 – Welcoming Woods

3780 –  Welcoming Woods Acrylic on Canvas 20 x 16 inches PRIVATE COMMISSION Welcoming Woods was commissioned by the children of a friend as a birthday gift for her.

He helps the transitions and transformations move along smoothly by casting light into the...

In this period of social isolation, the earth has begun to breath deeper and we’ve been given the opportunity to work together for a common cause. Forest Commune...

3775 – Winter Solstice

3775 –  Winter Solstice Acrylic on Canvas 10 x 8 inches Unframed The word solstice is derived from the Latin sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still) because at the solstices the Sun’s declination appears to ‘stand still’. According to Forever Conscious, “The winter solstice celebrates the longest hours of darkness or the rebirth of the sun and is believed to hold a powerful energy for regeneration, renewal and self-reflection. In Pagan times the winter solstice was referred to as Yule and was a celebration of the Goddess (Moon). I chose colours to reflect the mystical and self-reflective qualities for this time of year.
