Client Feedback

I love when collector's share their pictures with me after purchasing a painting.  It is great to see where my paintings go and how the new owners decorate their homes with my artwork.  It will never cease to bring me joy!

"Cottage Memories"

Starting off 2017 with a Commission Bang!  Three so far, but this one is my favourite.

I have done several paintings for this collector so I was thrilled when they asked me to create another piece for them.  A painting of "the cottage".  This Muskoka gem holds fond memories for the couple and the entire family.  It was great to hear the stories of times spent there, of watching their children grow up there - I felt that I was part of something special. 

They no longer own the cottage but perhaps through this painting the memories can live on......

If you are interested in your own, unique commissioned piece email me and I'll discuss with you how the process works.

Winter Has Arrived With A Fury

I am not a winter person, in fact, I don't enjoy winter at all which is ironic as I love to paint winter scenes.  There is a beauty to winter.  The fresh fallen snow on the trees,  the sun shining on the snow making it glisten and sparkle.  There can also be a calm beauty to a winter scene.  In Grey County where I live, more often than not the days are grey and the snow squalls off Lake Huron are common closing roads and forcing hibernation.  The view from our house looks over a valley and nearby farmland.  We can watch the snow squalls come across the valley.  Strangely, I do find the scene peaceful and calming.  This is what I try to bring out in my winter paintings.  My new series...."Winter's Calm"

Final Commission for 2016

 
Delivered my final commission for 2016 to a wonderful couple from Collingwood, Ontario.  The day was beautiful with warm temperatures, magnificent fall colours and the best part - happy clients.  It was a pleasure doing this commission and a challenge.  It is a good thing as an artist to keep pushing into new territory, learning new things and this painting did that.  I am feeling very blessed that I was able to complete this painting for Karen and Walter.  Thank you!
