portage on mccraney lake

This summer was the launch of my new watercolour series, The Park, inspired by the rugged landscapes of Algonquin Park. Some painted from the canoe, others back at home… from the biggest tree to the smallest clump of moss, I just love painting it! Now that access to the park is limited in the winter,…

last autumn market

This weekend I will be a vendor at the Autumn at Andrews market at Andrews Scenic Acres. As well as my autumn trees, landscapes, toads, bats, and pumpkins, I will be bringing these new acrylic paintings framed in reclaimed wood. I have been making the most of some gorgeous little pumpkins I picked up there…

Art at Andrews : Dahlias

This is a little acrylic on canvas I painted en plein air at Andrews Farm & Winery. It was an overcast day, cool and wet… I brought a picnic blanket to sit on and paint from, but quickly realized the best view was from a standing position. So I basically held my little canvas &…

wild mushroom watercolours

One of my absolute favourite things to discover in Ontario are the tiny colourful wild mushrooms on the forest floor. I had some fun painting a few this past summer, took a lot of photos to bring home and paint from. This is a little collection I am eager to continue with… once harvest season…

mini moose

Having a break from pumpkins, started looking through my recent photos of Algonquin Park to study the trees and water. Enjoyed painting more mini-moose! Part of The Park limited watercolour collection.

Rain Lake : Day 6 after dinner

Last on my easel during our camping trip to Rain Lake in Algonquin Park this summer… 12×12 acrylic study of the view to the west of the cabin. I painted it on a canvas I had primed with blue, and I had used that canvas to wipe off excess paint… giving it interesting texture and…

Rain Lake : Day 6 watercolour

Before I started working on the acrylic painting affectionately called “Before Breakie,” I did a little watercolour study of the same scene.

Rain Lake : Day 6 before breakie

On my easel the sixth day day in Algonquin Park on Rain Lake… a last 12×12 acrylic study of the view. Painted on a canvas I had primed with purple, you can see the flecks of purple colours poking through.
