This is a miniature rose which I enlarged. I painted it because I liked the colour and value changes and also because I found it a real challenge to depict the petals.

Lighthouse Cape Spear Newfoundland

Lighthouse Cape Spear Nfld. 8 x 8" oil on canvas $125.00

I painted this painting as a reminder of a trip to Newfoundland a few years ago. Cape Spear is the farthest point east in the Atlantic ocean of Canada. It is a sight to behold. As I took the photo, a fishing boat happened to appear on the right, which was a bonus.

Pansies 8 x 8" oil on board $100

I just bought these pansies from the nursery down the road so I thought I had better paint them before I planted them.
They have such saucy looking faces and don't mind the cooler weather.

60th Bouquet

60th Bouquet  10" x 8" watercolor  $125 unmatted

I have painted in watercolor most of my art career, until about 8 years ago when I started painting in acrylics. So just now I am refreshing my watercolors. I did this painting from a picture I took of the flowers from our sixtieth anniversary which was two years ago. I wanted to combine soft and hard edges and give he essence of the flowers.

Peppers  acrylic 8" x 8" on gessoboard  $100

Still Life with Pear

Still Life with Pear  acrylic 10 x 8" on board
