... exploring in my creativity further in 2017

Creating again...


It's been a while since I posted anything and life has been incredibly busy and chaotic especially lately with renovations. I did find a little time to create though (and of course work behind the scenes with Kristin at PPF - creation of a different sort). I am hoping I will have enough time to visit you this weekend, so here are some of my paintings since my last post...

Balloons in the Setting Sun


Spring Branch

Birds on a Wire

Paintings finished on my deck (I so enjoy painting outside... that is over for this year...)

I did a bit of work in my art journal....

How I Spent my Summer

Rainbow Unicorn

Our Moon with Mark Twain quote

Until I went away on vacation, I also participated in Tammy Garcia/Daisy Yellow's ICAD challenge. The first two are a Mondrian look at the colours of my garden...  (Others are posted on my instagram account along with a few photo challenges.)

Garden a la Mondrian #1

Garden a la Mondrian #2

Another theme of mine was Birds:

Blue Herons


False coloured....(I forget what...)

Colours of my Garden - Abstract

And a few Zen Doodles....


Yuri on the Railing

And those are some of the highlights of my creativity this summer. Hopefully it won' be as long until next post! ;)

Happy PPF! Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians and I look forward to visiting you!

Scenes from my Travel Sketchbook

If I am going away on a relaxing vacation, I often bring a sketchbook and a small selection of water colour paints. Sometimes I get a few pages done, other times none and once (Mexico) I finished the whole sketchbook!

Earlier this month I was in Costa Rica for a week and managed to paint two pages. There were these gorgeous bluebirds, almost like a blue jay but much fancier... they would hang around the pool and as soon as you left your pina colada unattended they would steal the pineapple garnish!

And of course there were iguanas! My friends suggested I paint this one the colours of the Costa Rican flag....

Happy PPF everyone!

Oh - Are you on instagram? I am finally on instagram where I first posted these, and a very few of the photos I took for inspiration. It's kind of fun for sharing a quick photo or for doing a photo challenge.
