Paintings of spots along Forest Lea Road
Godin's Garden 6 x 6" Oil on Birch Panel
Our neighbours down the road keep a lovely garden which over looks fields to the south. The pink structure in the background is the foundation of an old barn that has fallen down many years ago. I love the view of the old foundation against the greens of the fields and the bright flowers of Rob and Peg's garden.
Walter's Hayfield 8 x 8" Oil on Birch Panel
The sun was nearly set when I started this painting of our neighbour's recently cut hay. The colours were rich and the lines produced by the rows of hay were important elements of the design, it was a very hot, humid Sunday evening but I couldn't resist what this scene had to offer. I was glad that I painted it when I did as the next day the hay was baled and the lovely rows of drying hay were gone.
