Stopping By

Posted on Updated on

This is an 11 x 14 oil on a panel. It's around the area where I live. I've had the reference for a long time and even painted a smaller version, but it was when I cropped the reference close up that I fell in love with the scene. To me, it depicted a friend stopping by for a visit - a stranger would have parked in the lane.

Just Us Chickens

This is an 11 x 14 oil on a panel. I was attracted to the lovely colors I saw in the barn. The chickens added some life and helped with the story.

Wool Gathering

This painting is an 11 x 14 oil on linen and was sold at Art at the Mill. 

The reference was taken when another artist and I went to plein air at a beautiful local farm. I later painted the same scene for a friend who liked the painting and wanted one of her own.

Marketplace

Marketplace

This is an 11 x 14 on a canvas.

It depicts a busy marketplace. The reference was from a photo of my dad’s. It has a date on the back in the early nineteen hundreds, also noting that it was a marketplace in Ontario where my grandmother was born. Since the photo was in black and white, I used my imagination to decide what might have been fashionable in that day. The painting was sold at Art at the Mill.

Milan Commute

Milan Commute

This is an 11 x 14 oil on a panel.

The reference photo was one my daughter took when she and her husband were in Milan. Rather than have so much uninteresting road, I decided to add the figure on a bicycle, which brought life to the painting and helped to tell a story.  This painting sold at Art at the Mill Show to an artist friend!
