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.

Late Bloomers
(12” x 24”, oil on canvas)

Anyone familiar with my work will know that I do not do a lot of flower paintings, except for my annual geranium piece. These hardy blooms are always the last bits of color in our garden, and once they are gone I know the cold weather is just around the corner. I am always sorry to see them go.

Do, Re, Mi (A Trio of Purple Finch)
(8” x 8” each, oil on canvas)

We were inundated with purple finches this summer. These beauties travel in packs, are highly sociable and eat a lot. And I do mean a lot!

While called purple they are actually red with a red or brown streaked belly. The most apt description I’ve come across is that they look as if they have been dipped in raspberry juice. Having just made jam, I say they are the colour of my stained fingers.

Sophie  2001-2016
(White charcoal on black card)

Things have been pretty quiet around the studio. Sophie, my constant companion of 15 years, left us a few weeks ago to join her buddies that have passed before her (especially Codie, her BFF).

There is a big hole in our home and in our hearts, but we know she is much better off now.

My husband and I will soon start haunting the local shelters, because our house is not a home without a dog. I know Sophie would approve.

For anyone in the Montreal area, I cannot speak highly enough of the folks at K911. They made a dreadful decision just that much easier.
