Nothing new.

So I haven’t been doing much painting lately. Time is short as we are packing up for a potential move. As I was pulling things out from the back of my closet, I found boxes of old watercolours.

White Horse - Tiny Painting, 3" x 3"

I would love to be running through a sunny field of flowers right now. During my run today, I experienced snow, hail, rain and wind. Is anyone else as ready for summer as I am? I guess I will just keep painting it until it arrives.

Small Paintings

I will soon be delivering these tiny paintings to Oh Brothers. They are 3” x 3”. I love working on these little canvases and hope to finish a bunch more before Christmas (might be perfect for that hard-to-buy-for person on your list…).

In other news, I just finished another painting, but I can’t post it here yet. I have submitted it to the Anonymous Show put on by the North Vancouver Arts Council. The show will consist of over 600 unsigned 8” x 8” paintings, all priced at $100. The sale and opening is on Nov. 24, 7-9:30pm. All the info is here.
