Vines Contre Jour

6"X8" Oil on board
A couple of years ago the Niagara Artists’ Centre annual fundraiser Small Feats experimented with offering smaller, 6”X8”, paintings as well as the usual square foot works. As I was swamped with work at the time I decided to go with this size. None of mine sold and I guess it wasn’t generally very successful because they didn’t repeat this size the following year.
At the time I forgot (or didn’t have time) to scan and post them and I just remembered them now that another of my favourite local arts organizations is looking for donations.
This one will be available at the Carousel Caravan silent auction. It is valued at $100 but starting bid will probably be around $10, so you may be able to pick up a bargain.

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.
