I have been getting into the winter spirit with lots of snow paintings. Here are a few of them – there are more in the “Landscapes” section of the website.

I painted this 36″ x 12″ Acrylic from a photo taken a few years ago. I used just three colours (with titanium White) for the sunset colours: Cadmium Orange, Cobalt Blue, and Alizarin Crimson. I love the purple that Cobalt Blue and Alizarin Crimson make. For the black I mixed Ultramarine Blue and Raw Umber. This will most likely be put up for sale in the next group art sale – hopefully we can start those again soon.
On The Rocks
This was painted from a photo taken by Kelsey Ann Alpaugh (@k.double.a on instagram). She takes lovely photos around Vancouver Island and she very kindly gave me permission to paint it. I especially enjoyed painting the rocks under the surface. It is a 22×28″ acrylic on gallery wrap canvas.
I just finished this painting: Misty Mount Assiniboine. It is an 18 x 24 Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped canvas. This was the view from our cabin on a recent trip to Mount Assiniboine Lodge.
I sold two paintings today! They were both 12″ x 36″ rock paintings done from photos taken along the Elbow River in the Elbow Falls area. I was given a challenge of posting photos of 5 paintings in 5 days on Facebook and the buyers saw my posting and contacted me. The two were favourites of mine so it was a bit hard to see them go but they had just been sitting in my closet and will now go to a new home where they will get to be on display. That sure beats a life in a closet.
