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.

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.

Painted in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, this painting speaks to the patience we need to develop with ourselves and others during the time of social distancing and isolation. It also is a reflection about the gains we made during that time. We made strides to find a treatment and a vaccine. We are also...
