Sundown on Mietz Road

A ‘quick and dirty’ sketch at the end of an afternoon painting in Renfrew County. It got dark before I could refine the shapes but I was happy with the color mixes.

Birch and Balsam

Catching the first snow on my garden. Even the most hardy perennials have their leaves frozen after three nights of hard frost.

Sunday Morning, Papineau Creek

This beautiful spot on the Papineau Creek at Maynooth offered so many great painting opportunities that it was difficult to choose which composition to paint. I chose this view because I loved how the sunlight shone through some of the foliage with a beautiful warm yellow light and reflected off other spots harmonizing the whole scene. It was quiet and blissful and I was accompanied by some wonderful painters, Robert Strickland, who led the workshop, and my longtime painting buddies, Marina Laliberte and Sue Simington.
