Here is a black and white sketch using chalk pastel pencils. After I completed the black and white sketch, I liked it so much that I tried the same picture in oil. (the chalk pastel has a black background- first six pictures, the oil has a dark grey background- last four pictures)
Here is a step by step of an oil painting I recently finished.
Painting a picnic scene in the middle of winter, with snow on the ground, reminds me of days gone by when a short drive and quiet reflections were a high priority. Definitely will be doing this again once warmer weather arrives :)
This is a picture of a couple of children playing at the water's edge, with the Port Rowan Lighthouse in the distance and a picnic in the foreground.
Port Rowan is a lovely community that I'd like to visit more often :)
This was a fun piece I made for one of my grandsons. What a wonderful heritage to have a history of farming. A farm presents endless hours of exploration, imagination and fun for children.
I love old barns, they have such character and I wonder what story the barns could tell us of years gone by.
And what boy wouldn't absolutely love to be in and around a tractor!
I finished this piece in January 2020.

My paintings are little bits of me, moving from within me and out onto the canvas. Each painting comes from an emotional connection I feel with the painting’s inspiration.
