I'm trying to get back to the studio after a bit of a break. There are several works in progress needing attention! This is the first to cross the finish line.
Also: I still have some Christmas/holiday cards for sale if you are interested, featuring the image below. They are 5.5 x 5.5", printed on glossy stock: 5 for $12, 10 for $20, plus $5 shipping (envelopes included). Let me know if you're interested!
Last but not least, I have a holiday show coming up in my home, December 8 to 10. Details to come!
Thanks to all who followed my daily art journey.Read More
I have let my daily art project slide lately, although I have been very busy doing art-related things!
I haven't decided how to proceed, vis-a-vis my blog, etc. More on this later. But for now, I did do this is my art journal today, during (and after) a concert I went to in Trenton by the Durham County Poets.
I have given up on the trees for the moment, but this one should be ready in time for the weekend!
It has been a long gap between postings this time, but I have been working on my big watercolours every day. The trees one is finally at the peeling stage (time to remove all the masking and see what's left to deal with!). This is actually a fun step, and Teddy enjoys helping with it:Read More

My whole house was my studio today!Read More
After puttering around doing art-related stuff like prepping surfaces, etc. yesterday and today, I finally got to some actual painting this evening. I started my biggest-ever watercolour; if it goes as planned it will be a 36 x 36" painting of trees, and if it's show-worthy, I will mount it on a wood panel for hanging without a frame. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, and all that...
By the way, I had good news today: my painting "Venetian Pear III" sold at the Colborne Art Gallery. Hurray!
I think this might be finished now.
Hello! I'm back in the land of Wi-fi. While still away in cottage county the past few days, l have been adding layers to this, another wildflowers watercolour. Today I peeled off the masking and was left with this. Not sure I will be able to resolve this one... but we'll see!
This was another experiment, trying my "resistance painting" technique on a new subject (wildflowers, grasses, etc., as seen along a country road).
This is another one of the watercolours I've been working on at the cottage this week. It's inspired by looking into the woods as I walk along the road.
I haven't been posting my "art of the day" online, but I have been working on this painting daily. Today I spent most of the day on it.Read More
I didn't post any "art of the day" yesterday, for the first time since I began this blog 18 1/2 months ago. I did start a little watercolour, though. (The point of posting online has always been to motivate myself, and this practice seems to have established the daily art habit rather well.)
I am at the cottage, and I now have three watercolours on the go. If I don't use up all my cellular data, I will get back to my daily posting!
