About Me

My photo
Quispamsis, NB, Canada
As long as I can remember I have been drawing and painting. Although my subject matter may have changed with time, what has not changed it my attraction to nature. Being drawn in by sunlight, shadows textures and details all with rich colors. I know I am best challenged when the work has a high element of complexity. I spend much time and effort exploring my subjects - striving to gather as much information as possible before I begin working. My first love is working with water mediums - from watercolors, through acrylics and most recently water soluble oils. Often I may explore the same or similar subject in different mediums.

Queen Cecropia

One night while watching tv, this rather large moth kept flying into our window -. At first I thought it was a bird gone wrong - but at closer inspection I realized it was a really big moth. I took many photos - and this is the result.

This is the first of a few painting I will do of this moth - I could not believe a moth could be so large and so beautiful. I plan to complete a few more - only much larger soon.

I have so many large work so close to completion - I neded a diversion - so I took a few hours to paint this.  Then I buckled down to face the larger peices - really good painting day.
