Recent Painting – Sunset in Misty Rain at Captain Passage

I went outside to take in the sunset on the ferry trip home back to the island. I was struck by the incongruence this evening. There was a misty rain, but also clear visibility and blue sky. There was a chill in the air, but a warm glow from the setting sun. Parts of the sky was dark and brooding, but the rest was calm and still.

The original 10×20″ acrylic on canvas painting is available for sale here.

2019 Mosaic Art Show at Goward House

I am pleased to announce that several paintings of mine will be in a group show at Goward House, January 26 – March 18, 2018. There will be an opening reception on Sunday, January 27 from 1:30-3:30pm. If you are reading this, you are invited. It’d be great to see you!

This show is comprised of 6 artists. We met at the Cedar Hill Arts Centre studio, where we all paint. When I took up painting again in 2016, this was the community I found there. We don’t paint in similar styles, and most of the time we spend together we spend quietly at work. We do, however, draw inspiration from one another, and from time to time we give and receive valuable feedback on our works in progress.

Signing up at the studio was something I did at the time because I felt I needed a hobby, but being there, I found I just couldn’t get enough of it. Painting has grown in my life to become a bigger passion for me than I ever could have predicted. I’m now focussing my career on painting full-time.

I am so grateful to have come back to my art practise. The studio, and these artists have been a big part of that for me.
