12 Mile Creek 2

7"X5" Acrylic on board

I apologize for my lack of posts recently. My problem is partly that I have been coping with all sorts of "stuff" in my life and partly that my muse has deserted me, perhaps the two are related.

This one is rather a poor excuse for a paintng but at least I managed to achieve something. Actually I have been doing a fair amount of sketching but my scanner is in an awkward place and not as easy to use as it was, so I haven't bothered posting any of my sketches. I will try to get back into my routine soon but I think that it is time for a change, so it might be a new medium, format or subject. we shall see.

Blossom 2



7"X5" Oil on board

More blossom, this time caught against the backdrop of Lake Ontario, glistening in the noonday sun.

Blossom



7"X5" Oil on board

I spent most of the day painting doors and digging dandelions. It isn't nearly as much fun as painting blossom but the weather was good and we have to strike while the iron is hot, make hay while the sun shines etc.

This image of the tractor almost obscured by the fruit trees caught my eye. The blossom is early this year I think, we had some unseasonably warm weather a couple of weeks ago and everything was excelerated. It did get cold again but at least there was no frost
