A new painting for a new year!

Happy New Year! Starting things off with a new little painting titled “River Rocks”. This is a scene from Englishman River Falls in Parksville BC, a lovely spot for a walk and a picnic.

Water is a favourite subject of mine to paint. The way it moves, the colours and the volume of it, as well as objects in it, offer an excellent challenge for painting!

Thank you!

The year is winding down and the holidays are fast approaching, which – ideally – means less painting and more eggnog!

I’d like to give a great big THANK YOU!! to everyone who has taken time to visit this site over the last year. Thanks for your support and kind comments, your kindness is greatly appreciated. Happy holidays folks, stay safe and see you next year!

This tiny miniature painting is of a scene along the Ridge Meadows Dykes in Maple Ridge BC. A beautiful spot for a frosty morning walk.
