New mini: Spring Meadow

Spring time in pretty Beacon Hill park on Vancouver Island, where lovely camas blooms in the grass and blue skies shine overhead. Lovely spot for a ramble on a sunny day!

Autumn in miniature

Autumn is one of my favourite seasons in which to paint the landscape. Like spring, the fall season here on the west coast is colourful and full of energy. Leaves are changing, storms are brewing and the landscape is busily preparing for a winter nap.

I painted this little miniature several years ago, featuring some old train tracks running through the small town of Chemainus on Vancouver Island, still a lovely place to visit.

A Walk Through the Park – in miniature

I find few things lovelier than a leisurely stroll through a beautiful park, on a very fine spring day. Largely, I suspect, because I don’t have to battle allergies that accompany spring’s grand arrival.

This painting depicts springtime in Beacon Hill Park, Victoria BC.
