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.

Work in progress - Rosy Red Roses (?)

This painitng of carpet roses has me a bit consumed.  It is 30 x 22 so on the large size again.  I am fascinated by the range of colors in the roses - particularly the fading petals.  If you look closely, you will see the first ant!

I am actually working on two paintings at the same time. The other is another poured painting of daisies.  Loose and fun so the focus on this one will not make me too crazy!.

The name above may not stick but for now I'll use it.
