Pathway to the Elbow River
Mixed Media on BoardPainting #246 - It sure is a lot easier to create a painting from a photograph. Usually, I create my landscapes from memory and feeling but I had a reference photo for this piece. This painting is my last for 2017 and marks my 30th piece of the year! Whew, I didn't think I was going to meet that goal this year. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Sparkles Along the Bow River
Mixed Media on BoardPainting #244 - I didn't plan on painting my tree this way, however, this is what I got. I like the addition of rhinestones in the piece. The whole painting lights up when the sun hits it!

Take the Leap
Mixed Media on BoardPainting #239 - I'm continuing with my small paintings. I used an analogous colour scheme of blue, green and purple. I like the roots in the foreground and continue to enjoy the freedom I feel while painting these small pieces.

Mixed Media on BoardPainting #237 - I was playing around with inks and this is a photo transfer of the same piece I did on watercolour paper (which I like better). I have great memories of New Hamburg's fall fair when I was I kid and that's what I tried to capture.

The In Crowd - Redo
Mixed Media on CanvasI decided to change a few of my paintings that have been in my inventory for a while. In this painting I added some warm coloured leaves to represent the change of season. I also added some "jewels" - their shine really catches my eye!

A Child is Born
Mixed Media on CanvasPainting #233 - This was a commissioned piece, which really pushed me because of its size and "trying to get it right" for my clients. Unfortunately, I didn't get a good photo before it went to its new home!

After the Rain
Mixed Media on CanvasPainting #232 - I don't think this painting is finished. I'm experimenting with skies because I have a commissioned sky painting. I struggle with leaving the canvas so "simple" ... why do I want to see more? I like the calmness presented here but a part of me is saying, "so what?". I need help ...
