Precambrian Autumn

My latest attempt at depicting the glory of our natural world, enjoy.  I once lived in northern Manitoba and continue to draw on that experience in my art making.

Oil on Canvas 
48x48 in.

 The photo doesn’t really do justice to this piece, it is very textural and nuanced. I’ve tried to express the serenity of the dawning of a new day on a Canadian boreal landscape.

Painting in a Kayak

Morning on Manitou  6x8 Oil on Board


I've been fortunate to be able to get out onto the water in my kayak and paint what I'm seeing of late. I have a small 6x8 pochade box that I take along because of its portability and size; not much room in the cockpit of my skin boat.  I'm loving it and look forward to doing more.

Afternoon Shadows

Afternoon Shadows Oil 20 x 20 in.
Its been awhile since I last posted, no real good excuse. The shadows are getting longer, a sure sign that the days are getting longer and spring is approaching. I encounter this scene regularly on my walks in the countryside around my home and was quite taken with what I saw here the other day and was inspired to paint it. Hope you enjoy it!
