Busy creating Christmas cards….

I have been creating Christmas cards as fast as I can. These are just a sampling of the ones I have made so far this year. No two are the same, ergo, “one of a kind”. This year my “one of a kind” cards are available for sale at Rikki Lou Who’s Gift Emporium downtown Salmon Arm BC. I am pleased to have this opportunity. Thank you for shopping local and supporting your local small business owners and artisans.

As always I hope my happy quirky critters make you smile.

New art!! “Sunny Disposition”

New art!! So new it’s still drying on my easel and I have just given it a title, “Sunny Disposition”.

It’s something bright and cheerful just for you on what is a rather dull day here in the Shuswap Lake area of British Columbia.

I have included photos of my process and progress. One photo also shows how I finish the sides of every painting I do on a gallery canvas.

Fingers crossed it cheers everyone. I do like it when my art causes smiles.

“Sunset on Mara”

Sunset on Mara

Sunset on Mara. This painting has a lot of meaning for me. It is emotionally charged. Firstly it is the first painting since the death of our youngest son. Secondly it is based on a photo that I took the evening after his death. I could see a bird taking flight in the cloud formation. It was a perfect evening and a spectacular sunset. A beautiful memory to have and hold. Ergo it had to be memorialized on canvas by my hands, brushes and imagination.

Finding solace in my art

I am fortunate to have my art. Since I started painting in 2009 it’s always gotten me through the tuff times in life. This week I found solace once again. Like taking small steps everyday to move on I started with small things like cards. I then moved onto a bigger canvas. I will share photos of that when I am done but I am sharing photos of the four cards I made. The cards are now available at Rikki Lou Who’s Gift Emporium downtown Salmon Arm on Alexander St.

I dropped off 6 new “one of a kind” hand painted greeting cards at Rikki Lou Who’s Gift Emporium downtown Salmon Arm on Alexander St today as well.

We have been recovering from or trying to find our way through the grief following the death of our youngest son. Thanks to the love and support of our friends and loved ones we are finding our way.

It is almost time for me to set up my easel and escape into my art….

Small art and a new venue…

Recently I have been trying to rebuild my small painting inventory. The first two paintings are 10″ x 10″ acrylic on canvas. Can you tell that I was having fun with my palette knives?

I am pleased to announce that my “one of a kind”, hand painted greeting cards are now available for sale at Rikki Lou Who’s Gift Emporium on Alexander Street downtown Salmon Arm BC. I would like to thank the owner, Rachele for the opportunity and for supporting local artists. There are several photos of my cards above. I dropped off 15 to see how they sell. Fingers crossed. I am excited and looking forward to coming up with some more fun ideas for my cards.
