Mountain Meadow

Well, here it is….’Mountain Meadow’….the painting is completed and ready for framing. Green in every combination I could come up with is in this painting. There’s not too much left to say about it (having done so already in previous posts), and I think it deserves a home now. It is the first of a new series I have started on Alberta rural landscapes. (To see it larger, place your cursor over it and click on the image….it will enlarge to fill your screen. It is Oil on Canvas – 24 in. x 40 in.)

Up for it! June 6, 2010

Well, I finally finished my GREEN painting. What a lot of work! Green is not green as I had noticed, but rather many mixtures of blues, yellows, purples, even black, to make all those wonderful colors in nature. And I did it….it was a great experience with enough frustration in different parts of the work to make my stay with the project. I will post it up as soon as I get my photo of it taken.

On another note, today I am off to visit the beautiful Devonian Botanical Gardens, in particular, the Japanese Gardens. They are having Japanese Cultural events all day: tea ceremony, martial arts demonstrations, Japanese music, dance, songs, and many sweets to eat. I am going to use my camera a lot today. I am looking forward to also seeing the beautiful silk embroideries that are so famous for embellishing kimonos and obis. I have an interest in this part of the day because in about three weeks, I will be learning the art of Nuido – the way of embroidery. Its another part of my journey and personal curiosity. So, my camera and I are up for it today…taking many shots of flowers, people, and whatever else piques my interest. It should be a good day.

Thank you for visiting my website! This is my online studio, expressions and thoughts for friends of art, artists, and those curious enough to explore my work.  I paint because I must…it is my inborn curiosity of life around me and the people within it that inspires me to begin.  There is always a work in progress even if it is still in my mind.

My Latest Exhibition ‘Rural Alberta Landscapes’, October 2010:
The opening reception of my recent art show was very successful. The attendance was strong and many people had great comments about my work. Here is a short excerpt from Scott Hayes, a Staff Writer for the St. Albert Gazette regarding his comments on my work: “Of Local Interest is the latest exhibit at Art Beat. It’s a loving homage to the diversity of the Alberta landscape and at the same time, it’s also a tribute to the talent of the artist(s) themselves.” Also, ” I loved her warm palette this time around but what really sruck me is how well she captures depth of perspective in some compelling situations. One image of hoodoos in the Badlands shows sandy rock in front of sandy rock but somehow she manages to make my eye see the distance between the two. Another paintng of a series of birch trees amplified this effect 10 times.”

All pieces are available for sale. Please go to my Contact page for details on purchasing, framing, etc. My gallery will be very happy to hear from you.
