Here's good friend, Rick McDiarmid and I in the demo tent at Painters Lodge last weekend. It was the 19th annual gathering of Painters at Painters in Campbell River and we had a wonderful time as always. I was just freshly home from Italy so was a little jet lagged but it was well worth the effort to get there.
I just went through my Italy photos and I have so many good ones, I don't know where to start. Italian paintings coming soon. Meanwhile, for anyone who wants to see the finished version of the painting I was working on at Painters, I will post it when it's done.
Here are sequential shots of my latest painting. It's a 30 x 40" acrylic and I used green gold as the under-painting colour. I love the image- it's my favourite kind of place and the painting unfolded without too much struggle, despite all those little rocks under the water. Good thing because I abandoned the previous painting after struggling with it for days. And so it goes..........
I have been a full time artist for over 30 years. I live in a small village outside Vancouver with my husband Alan, who is also an artist. I love to paint and I love to teach people how to paint. When I'm not painting, my favorite thing to do is spend time outdoors with my dog, Havoc.
