Alstroemeria

 
7"X5" Acrylic on board

Also known as the Peruvian Lily. This is another one for Valentines Day.
These are wonderfully long-lasting cut flowers, native to South America. I bought these in the market on Saturday, discounted to $2.00 a bunch because they weren't fresh bu after 3 days with a spoonful of sugar in the water they are still showing no signs of flagging. I bargain I think.

For even more long-lasting pleasure, buy this painting, $75 (+$10 S&H) and it is yours for ever.

Letting Sleeping Dogs Lie

I haven’t been doing as much painting recently, but still drawing and sketching.
Quite often it is the dog who gets to star. I really should make an effort to do some action sketches. Letting the sleeping dog lie is all very well but they get a bit repetitive.

Window Sketches

I am a big fan and follower of the urban sketchers group, but I am too much of a wuss to spend much time at it myself through the Ontario winter. I have to make do with these views through my windows.


Evening Commute

12"X12" Oil on canvas

I seem to have spent my entire adult life living west of my place of work. This means that for about three months of the year I am driving into the sun in the mornings or the evenings (or both).
Driving from Niagara-on-the-Lake to St. Catharines requires crossing the Welland Canal. There are several lift bridges as well as a high-level "Skyway". This is the Lakeshore Rd. bridge, by Lock 1. The date would be somewhere in early November.
I think I will submit this one to the "Small Feats" NAC fundraiser.
