Beausoleil Island Painting · Dec 30, 11:29 AM

Since our return from the Georgian Bay National Park’s Artist in Residency Program in September, I have completed laying out over 35 sketches – carefully viewing each photo, cropping, contemplating, dissecting, and sizing, I have officially started my Beausoleil Island of Georgian Bay Series with this one depicting the south side of Honeymoon Bay.

There will be more red tones, abstracts, and typical Georgian Bay landscapes within this exciting series.

Indian Harbour Georgian Bay Inukshuk Painting · Sep 23, 03:57 PM

A very intriguing ‘armed’ inukshuk located in Indian Harbour of Georgian Bay, this piece was commissioned by an avid boater who admired this ‘marker’ so many times on his journeys to Indian Harbour, that he wanted to capture it in a painting for his home.

New Painting - Inspired by Willisville Mountain, La Cloche Mountains. · Aug 24, 06:32 PM

This painting was a private commission for a person, who like me, grew up with Willsiville Mountain in their backyard. Now living between Toronto and Whitefish Falls, he provided me with a photo of himself with his two nephews looking out at Frood Lake from the top of Willisville Mountain.

Since I don’t paint people in my landscapes, we chose to represent the people with 3 erratics.

And once the painting was done prior to the addition of the large central tree, the client decided to keep a clear view so we opted not to add the tree, as in the reference photo and sketch.

A lovely view indeed! One that I have climbed for over 35 years!

What an honour to paint such a great memory.

The Pool, Baie Fine, North Channel - new painting! · Jul 31, 02:59 PM

As a young person, I have taken many trips to what is known as The Pool located at the end of Baie Fine, North Channel … a stunning place nicely sheltered for boaters by the La Cloche Mountains. And if you anchor there for a period of time, you may have taken a hike up to Lake Topaz of Killarney Provincial Park – one of the most amazing coloured lakes of the Park (and quite the hike!)

This painting was a private commission for a very special wedding gift. The couple have many memories of visiting this place while they were dating and engaged to be married.
