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.

Wow, Paula - I think this is stunning! I love the colors - and I agree; what better illustration/s can there be for the promoting of fresh food?

Paula - This is one amazing painting! The translucency of the leaves is breathtaking. Beautiful cool colors and I love the way your single subject fills the entire picture area.

Congratulations on your show at Centre 64. We're both fortunate to have our art out there in the world - at galleries. Thank you for your very supportive comments. I'm very excited about doing figure painting. Keep up your good work! Marie
