Serenity – Acrylic Painting

This is one of last year’s favorites. I really had a whole other plan for this one but somehow, this icy perspective came out as if it had a life of its own.

Unfinished but Lovely 

Phases one, two and three of the piece I’m currently working on. I’m excellent at starting paintings, proving to myself that I can pull off what I intend on expressing but not actually finishing them until I absolutely have to… Maybe at last minute before a potential buyer is coming to view it or just before I’m submitting for a show.

This, like others is at the point that I love it but, no it’s not finished. I’m determined though. I think I’m going to finish it.

Not only that, but I might actually finish some others. I might just…


  

Solace – My newest painting!

I’m very proud of my newest piece! I’ve been focusing on painting a LOT! Absolutely loving the therapeutic process. This one is almost finished. I’ve got a few minor adjustments to make but I couldn’t wait to start sharing my progress with you.

Please, comment if you enjoy this forest painting.
Does it strike an emotion or a memory?

Undertaking of the Windy Blue Flower

Of all my floral shots, this photo from Stanley Park has been a source of pride for a couple of years. I finally decided to paint it despite a slight feeling of intimidation due to the complexity of detail in the petals. I’m three sessions into it and so glad I took a change on this one. So far I have pleasantly surprised myself. Scroll down for my current progress.

I’ve been experimenting with the fun process of applying complementary colours first, then adding the actual colours over top. This takes a bit of trial and error but allowing a bit of the original layer shine through adds real impact.

There’s more work to be done but I’m enjoying the progress. Here is end of session 3:

And the end of session one:

As you can see, the changes from one session to the next are dramatic. I find this process inspiring as I apply each layer. I hope to retain generous amounts of the original colours shining through in the final stages. Stay tuned as I will post more progress soon.

I feel inspired today. It’s Monday in November and quite brisk outside but the sun is bright just like this wonderfully vibrant yellow daisy. I hope this beautiful flower will help uplift you the way it has managed to uplift me.

Sea Wall Long Exposure Photography

For a little something “much” different… I love to play with long exposures when I’m outdoors. This time, instead of the more common silky water long exposure, I incorporated lines and angles along side ghostly figures as people walk down the sea wall, and a perfect line of ships way out in the distance. I added some dramatic edits for a vintage feel and viola! A pretty cool shot. You think?

A Blooming Getaway Part 1

This summer has been full of fun, nature and beauty. As absent as I’ve been from the blog due to all this fun, I’ve managed to compile quite a library of images for you all to enjoy. Here is a little something from a lovely recent getaway to entice you for the next while as fall approaches and I get back into the old routine.

Dragonfly

What a surprise this dragonfly was! Just hanging out on one plant and then the next. Lucky me! I love the black and white stripes on its wings. I’ve actually never seen this type of dragonfly before so it was a really a treat to have it so close and so still for me to photograph.

Aldergrove Zoo, Part 4 – Pink Flowers

Such amazing pinks! When in full bloom, these resemble a wild rose-bush, but the buds are quite different from the wild roses I’m familiar with. Do you know what these are?
