Autumn is here!

“Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile.” – William Cullen Bryant

For me, autumn comes comes with crisp morning air, golden afternoons and cozy evenings. And not infrequently, if you live on the west coast, a generous downpour of rain. It’s my favourite time of year, puddles and all, and my gumboots and camera are never far from hand.

Unexpected inspiration for the above painting came as I was on my way to somewhere else and I now stop to visit this little marshland whenever I pass by. Onward to new autumn adventures!



New Miniature Painting! “The Red Canoe”

The Red Canoe (1.75 x 5.25 inches)

A new miniature painting, fresh off my drawing table, “The Red Canoe” features a coastal scene along Gabriola Island, near Nanaimo BC. I felt particularly Canadian while painting this little piece and it reminded me of how lovely it is to paddle about in a canoe or row boat, or kayak for that matter!
