Autumn Square
(16” x 16”, oil on canvas)


Combine blue skies with autumn sunlight. Filter this light through brightly-coloured leaves and you have one of nature’s most breathtaking sights; one that captivates us all, year after year after year.

Mixed Woods
(18” x 24”, oil on canvas)

Here, I am exploring different types of trees with different types of bark patterns and textures against a backdrop of deep forest. I have endeavoured to create both a vertical rhythm using the trees, and a horizontal rhythm using the snow.

Birch Grid
(18” x 36”, oil on canvas)
Birches, with their distinctive pattern and colors, are a joy to paint. Given their somewhat graphic appeal, I was inspired to do a composition that would showcase these attributes.

Winter Vertical
24” x 12”, oil on canvas
I chose a vertical format to emphasize the height of the foreground trees and used both negative and positive spaces to set up a pleasing pattern. The distant band of dense forest anchors the composition and serves to heighten contrast between the light and dark trees. 

Welcome back to Painting of the Week.
Having focused on still life for many years, I moved onto the more lighthearted subject of backyard birds.
Now, after a year’s absence, during which time I taught and researched my next subject, I am back to present my newest body of work: trees in the landscape. I believe I have some exciting new work to present over the coming months and I hope you will stay tuned.

Perch

A female cardinal surveys her snow-covered domain—our back yard, that is.

Many thanks to all for your support over the past year. May all your days be merry and bright.

Snow Bird
(8” x 8”, oil on canvas)
This lone Junco was caught in last week’s first snowfall. I don’t know who was more surprised that the first snow came and stayed the week, him or me.
