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.

Presenting to you my latest painting, “Floral Wave”! I don’t think any explanation is needed except for this is purely my imagination at work. Having fun splashing acrylics about. I hope you like this happy painting as much as I enjoyed creating it.

New art completed! Title, “Radiant Vista”. Who can resist a meadow of wild flowers? I couldn’t. Poppies are always a popular subject. At least they are for me. Over the years I have painted several pieces that focus on the venerable and colorful poppy. I hope you enjoy my latest version.

“Dad’s Favourite”, my latest painting is drying on my easel. A little known fact is that I grew hollyhocks in my garden for years just for my Dad. He told me once that they were his favourite flower and that they reminded him of his grandmother and her garden. So here is my tribute to Dad’s favourite flower, the hollyhock. I no longer have a garden to plant the seeds that grow into these lovely old fashioned garden standards, but, I can certainly paint them.
There are several photos of my start to my finished painting. Enjoy.

The sky fascinates me. I could watch it and the ocean forever. This time my imagination has tried to capture a storm building over the ocean with the sun setting behind the thunderheads. This provides a plethora of color and light effects. Not to mention the layers of cloud and reflections. This one was fun to paint. I let my imagination go and that is always enjoyable.
Although this is my imagination and original work, I was influenced to create this scene by an article in the March 2022 PleinAir Magazine. The article is about artist Lisa Grossman titled Adventures In Skywatching.

This is Rory. He is a handsome young highlander. Don’t you think? I have painted highlanders before, Hamish and Fiona to name two. But those were always watercolor creations. Rory is acrylic on an 11″ x 14″ canvas board. He is another painting in my attempt to build my inventory of smaller works.

“My oh my!” My Iris painting is finished. It was a challenge with a few revisions and many hours spent at my easel. The reward? Well the painting itself of course and before I could finish it, it sold! Its always so reassuring to have someone love your creation enough to hang it in their personal space. See me smile? Thank you to the purchaser. I know “My oh my!” is going to a very good home.

I was asked to paint some purple Iris’s awhile back. Several months ago actually. I decided that it was time to see if I was up to the challenge. The photos are of my step by step process, progress and changes. Still very much a work in progress but I thought I would share anyway. I am enjoying myself and I am embracing my purple and violet hues, again. No photo reference, all original. Talk about flying by the seat of my pants. Ha ha!

Work or play? My newest in progress painting is on the easel. I am having fun playing with the light on the water and in the sky. As a rule, after the ground or base coat, I start from the furthest point away, usually the sky, and work my way forward. Right or wrong? I don’t know, it’s just how I’ve always done it. My imagination is working overtime on this one. This is also one of the biggest paintings I have done.
