New Representation: my art is now available at the Assiniboia Gallery in Regina! They are located at 2266 Smith Street, a vibrant, bustling part of town.

November 15 - December 31, 2017: Holiday Salon - Small Works Show at Darrell Bell Gallery (street level ), running through the holidays, Darrell and his team have installed a grid of twenty of my 8x8's as well as a small wall of larger pieces at the front of the gallery. Lots of great gift ideas to be found by the many gallery artists on display.

Ongoing: my 8x8" original oil paintings are available exclusively at Darrell Bell Gallery located in the Canada Building in downtown Saskatoon. As well, some of my large oil paintings are now available in this beautiful local gallery.

Whew! This one put me through H-E-double-hockey-sticks! It is amazing there is such a difference between a 6x6" format and an 8x8" format. I've gotten used to the slightly larger size. I initially tried to put waaaaaay to much information in this one and it just wasn't working. My photo reference had more clouds and a strong reflection of the sun right below the land line... a very glowing white/yellow patch. I tried to get it all in and it was just not happening. I almost scrapped the whole thing but then I decided to try editing. I'm glad I did because I am pleased with the end result. This was most certainly a learning piece, both in composition and colour. I'm glad I struggled through the pain!


Note:  I have decided to begin to include the PayPal "buy" link when I post my 6x6" paintings. This size makes up the majority of the paintings in my Daily Paintworks Gallery; the link will take you there to see the purchase/shipping info. Clicking on this link does not mean you are committing to the purchase of the painting- it just takes you to the spot where more information is available.
