The end of August

I love big earthy sunflowers. I know they have been done before by better and more famous artists. I will paint my own anyway!

The plural of elk is elk

Lots of texture and bold colors. Abstracts look like they would be easy but they are not! I am hoping to try more over the winter.

This is my nephew Davin, who visited for a week. I think he enjoyed himself. It was so neat to get to know him as we have never had a lot of time together. He is very literate and intelligent and unfortunately has inherited the Cravens trait for sarcasm which can be funny but also mean.
Here he is contemplating a shave at Ft. Steele.

Brassica #!

This is one of the new paintings that will be in the Kimberley show. I am rather happy with this one. Cool blue tones are a departure for me but I like how it turned out.

I am hoping to become involved with the local food movement, looking at where and how are food is coming from, moving it back to the community. I think food and art would be wonderfully combined.

I sincerely want to thank Tony at Strand's restaurant in Inveremere for letting me and fellow artists show paintings in his beautiful restaurant.

Getting Ready

Wow, it has been a while since I posted anything. I have been enjoying lots of company this summer. Now I am desperately trying to do some last minute paintings to include in this show. Centre 64 is a beautiful facility. Here's hoping that some of the people in town for the Folkfest check out my show.

In Velvet

This is my most recent painting. The deer are very good about posing for me. One jumped the fence and was in the yard last night. I had to shoo her out so she wouldn't stomp the dog to pieces. For gentle creatures, they can be quite fierce.
