3790 – Crocus Surprise

3790 – Crocus Surprise Acrylic on Canvas panel 16 x 12 inches Framed Every spring we find crocus popping up in unexpected places where they were likely ‘planted’ by squirrels that dig up the bulbs and move them. I’d been going through a creative slump when I came upon this collection in an out of the way spot on our property. Inspired by the flowers and enticed by a warm spring day, I gathered together my supplies and sat outdoors to paint.  I later finished it in my studio. It was good that I acted so quickly. Later the same day, our resident groundhog, Gustav the Great, decided the crocus flowers would make a...

I was attracted to the stature and unique character of this pine tree alongside the Muskoka River.

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. When asked what she would like in a painting, she told them she wanted Trees and Roots. Inspired by a hike on Whiskey Rapids Trail in Algonquin Park, Ontario, I added the Raven flying down the path in the distance to guide the viewer into the forest. The Raven brings with him the ability to bend time and space for the perfect moment at the right time. He signifies rebirth, renewal, reflection and healing. He helps the transitions and transformations move along smoothly by casting light into the...
