Painting for Mother Earth


Painting, like any creative endeavour, is a voyage of self-discovery. What and how we paint differs for every artist. And the answers to those questions continue to evolve and change as we learn and grow. From the start, I’ve been inspired by the natural environment. My favourite work includes trees, lakes, skies, clouds, flowers, Dragonflies, …

From Inspiration to Interesting Places

Well, here it goes. In this post I’ll attempt to explain my painting process to you. The focus will be acrylic painting. The first thing I need to do is decide what to paint. Most often I’m drawn to nature but I also enjoy painting barns, unusual buildings and architectural details, like windows and doors. …

Mother Earth’s Day?


Tonight I’ll be reading at a special annual event to honour mothers. Walking in My Mother’s Shoes involves musicians, visual artists and writers, all contributing their unique talents.  In addition to my written piece, I created  the painting, Mother Earth – View of Africa, (featured above) for the event. This year as I thought about …

Dates with Paints


My painting papers and canvases are talking to me! Well, maybe not literally but these day I sense more easily what I need to do and I’m not trying any longer to copy or reproduce photographs when I paint. Today, as my artistic journey continues, I am more interested in communicating my impressions of a subject …

Who I am as an Artist


This summer I’ll be participating in three Saturday art shows (July 21, 28 and Aug 4) here in Bracebridge. Known as Art in the Heart (http://www.theheartofmuskoka.com/Play-ArtintheHeart2012.htm) and fashioned after the street art market in Quebec City (Rue du Trésor), emerging artists are allotted a space on Chancery Lane or along Manitoba Street in downtown Bracebridge …

A Glorious Day to Say Goodbye


Yesterday we said goodbye to Joyce, the beloved cousin and friend of those who gathered by her graveside. Our numbers were small but our love immense. This  special woman touched each of us and changed us forever. Although Joyce passed away in November, her cousin delayed interment of her ashes until the spring when we …

Cultivating Patience


Have patience with all things, But, first of all with yourself.  –  Saint Francis de Sales (Patron Saint of Writers and Journalists)  Such wise words, aren’t they? But are you like me – able to have abundant patience with others yet when it comes to you, it’s a different story? Two days ago, I finished …

Sister’s Keeper?


Walking The Path that winds itself through the underground maze of downtown Toronto shops and restaurants, I noticed how people avoided eye contact and didn’t return a friendly smile or a “good morning” greeting. Is it due to the intensity of the city, the sardine closeness of their morning train commute, the density of the …
