Taking Off

Taking Off 30 x 24 acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas

This is another of my paintings now at Martins Gallery for the summer.  At 30 x 24, it's larger than average for me, but I wanted the impact those dimensions would bring.  I was especially delighted when the gallery owners placed it in the window. Here in the tourist region of Muskoka, this time of year means kids at camp and families at lakeside cottages. "Taking Off" is meant to evoke the joy of summer at the lake, whether cottage or camp.

Here are some progress photos:

The Explorers

The Explorers 14x18 acrylic on stretched canvas

Hello, blog buddies!  Even though I'm taking a hiatus from Daily Paintworks, I have been painting. Martins Framing and Gallery in nearby Bracebridge (Ontario) have shown my work in the past and are representing me again this summer. 

"The Explorers" celebrates the curiosity that enlivens a childhood summer. Who can resist exploring the shallows of a woodland glade? Below are some progress photos. Thanks for keeping an eye on what I'm up to!
