Tender Innocence

Tender Innocence
14x20"
sold

Tender Innocence I started awhile ago but was finally able to complete it this past week. I moved into a new place that I will be housesitting until I have finished my courses. It is perfect with only the basics and right on the ocean. It has inspired me to paint and I think that is why I was able to complete this painting.

Moss Street Paint In 2011

Moss St Paint In

Saturday was the Moss Street Paint In here in Victoria. The day started off with downpours of rain and colder than usual. I ended up only bringing my smaller pieces since they fit into plastic containers and stayed dry in the back of the truck. By the start of the event at 11:00, the rain had stopped (yeah!). The sun finally appeared as the event was ending but it was good to see so many people come out during the day.
Thank you to all of you that were able to make it.

Work, work, work

Harry
Commissioned Portrait
14x20"

The above piece is a commission I finished just before I started school. It was done for Harry's 80th birthday.

I originally thought I would have a separate blog for what I accomplish in school over the next 6 weeks but it has become too much to think about. My head is already hurting from all the reading and thinking I have to do! I am usually too busy making art (and helping kids) to analyze why I am making art. Not to mention the writing!
I did start a painting last Friday. It is the weight of the world on my shoulders. Hopefully it will start to manifest itself more as I paint.



However, over the weekend I did not get to work on it. Instead I worked on another commission and did writing homework. I am currently staying with my mother in law so she was able to document the work.

Homework!

Red Canoe

Red Canoe
14x20"

Two weeks ago I taught a workshop at April Point Resort and Spa on Quadra Island. It was the last one before my summer studies started at UVic. I planned on posting it sooner but in my haste to return home my children in Vancouver, I left it at my friend's house in Victoria and undocumented by my camera. Now that I am back in Victoria, I was able to retrieve it and photograph it for all of you to see.
School started yesterday and I am already overwhelmed by the experience. I am considering blogging about it all on a different site. My only drawback is the time. Will I have the time or will I be soooo into painting that I will lose the concept of time? However, I do have to be in classes at certain times so it can't pass me by too much.  It is all still to be determined and I will keep you posted.

Beach's Edge

Beach's Edge
11x14"

I really enjoy painting foggy scenes. This is another painting of Tofino, BC. Tofino is along the west coast of Vancouver Island. It has a long sandy beach and great waves for surfing.
This painting is of a special place for me because this is where my husband proposed to me. It was actually on the other side of those rocks and in the fog! Perhaps that is why I enjoyed painting it so much.
