Highbury Street 24″x18″

Autumn is my favourite painting season. My attempts at capturing the golden light, long shadows and intense colours are not always successful, but I have a lot of fun trying.

The season always feels too short for me to take it all in and explore as much as I’d like. For me, the magic of painting is that it allows me to fully immerse myself in a place, to explore the colours, textures and mood for as long as I want. Hopefully, in the end, I have a piece of art that captures the character of that place or moment. (Sometimes it actually works).

This painting takes me back to a cool fall morning when my son and I went for an early walk. He was looking for snails and frogs, and I was looking for painting inspiration. I came home with lots of ideas and (thankfully) he left the wildlife in the park.

Yes, it’s another tree. I love painting trees, but I am quickly running out of names for these paintings. My titles tend to be descriptive, so how many ways can I possibly describe a yellow maple in the fall? Or an orange oak? I am open to suggestions.

I’ve zoomed in on a detail here to show the brushwork more clearly. I kind of like the composition I accidentally made with my cropping.

I want to thank everyone at Hycroft for having my work up this month, and to everyone who attended the opening on Sunday. Great to meet so many nice people!

It is time for another show at Corner Cup, my local community coffee shop (4th and Blenheim, Vancouver). This painting and several others will be on display for the next month or so. If you stop by to see the artwork, chances are you might see me or a member of my family sitting and snacking – we spend far too much time there.

I know it’s cold and grey and almost winter, but I am just now getting excited about all of my fall photos and painting ideas. Here is the first one, a bit bigger than I usually paint.

I expect to be getting into winter paintings by the time spring rolls around.
