BIRD HEAVEN

This painting turned out much brighter than I had intended.  I think it was because of the beautiful weather outside.

BOLD PERSONALITY

6 x 6 inch
oil on 1/8th inch gesso board
$80.00

I have had this photo for quite some time, today it spoke to me.  I kept the brush strokes really loose and messy for this painting. Whenever I paint something red I always addd fuchsia pink, it just seems to give just a little more definition and interest.

BREATHTAKING

6 x 8 inch
oil on 1/8th inch gesso board
$95.00

This painting is from a photo taken off of Laburnum road just outside of Qualicum Beach, one of our favourite places to walk.  There is a long trail and if you follow it until the end there is a beaver pond which is just magical, the trees that they busily chew on look like great big sharpened pencils.

REDHEADS

6 x 8 inch
oil on 1/8th inch gesso board
$85.00

I was driving home a couple of days ago when these amazing poppies caught my eye, they were on the side of the road swaying in the breeze. I usually don't use a a lot of red in my paintings so these were really fun to paint for a change.
