Hello, Summer

Hello, Summer

I decided to reach out to family, friends and all the people who have been interested in my paintings and supported me over the years. I have had a bit of a relapse in my painting since my husband died four-and-a-half years ago, but through this time I realized that you have to be thankful for what your have – and I have a lot to be thankful for.

Family and friends are very important when you lose someone you love and I want to thank everyone who helped me and encouraged me to keep painting. Also, I realized that life is very wonderful and you shouldn’t waste any of it.

I just returned from a six-week trip to Panama. My son Cameron, who lives there, and his partner Natasha spoiled me totally. The highlight of my trip was painting plein air in the mountain. The constantly moving clouds over the peaks are breathtaking.

Here is a picture of one of my mountain paintings.

This summer I will be spending time at the lake and doing lots of painting by the water.

I would like to share my just competed latest painting entitled  “Ready for a Paddle.” This painting was inspired by my life at the lake, my favorite place to be. Many paddles I have enjoyed in this 90-year-old cedar strip canoe that has spent its entire life at the cottage.

The newly restored canoe is now the subject for many of my paintings. This exact piece will be heading to the art gallery at Deerhurst Resort to hang with some of my other paintings.
