Hi there and welcome to my blog. While I can't promise regular postings, I do hope to update when I can and let you know a little more about me and the way that I work creatively as an artist. I'll keep this posting short as I mainly want to show a painting that sold recently - (above). The title is 'Early Snow'. Painted in oil on canvas, the size is 16" X 20".
This is a scene typical of the area around where I live once you get away from busy streets. I am lucky to live next to a Nature Reserve and within two minutes I can be in the reserve painting. Within the reserve are two forested areas and open fields, smaller stands of trees and two smallish lakes that are fed by three streams. Resident in the reserve are White-tailed Deer, Beaver, Red and Grey Fox, Possum and Raccoon along with other animals such as Eastern Cottontail and a number of different rodents etc. Snakes and Turtles are common and I have a large bird list that includes Eagles, Peregrine Falcon, Raven etc. Red-tailed Hawk breed here as does Coopers Hawk and many smaller passerines. I find this place a welcome retreat and a great inspiration for some of my paintings. The seasons change noticeably and give me many different scenes to choose from. Such was one of them that inspired Early Snow.
