New and Used

I have this thing about old cd/record stores and used book stores. That yellowed light, the racks and racks of items and the low lying musty smell all bring a sense of comfort to me. I keep being drawn back to it.

Also, another thing I keep being drawn back to is portraiture. I started out only wanting to do portraits then decided to work on other subjects that didn't come as easily. Painting portraits feels the same as a well worn pair of slippers. Restful and relaxing.

You can find out more about this 12" x 18" canvas here.

Charity ARTS Auction

Hello! Long time, no post - my apologies to my regular readers. I am painting and trying to enjoy what little time in the garden I have.

The above piece has been accepted to the Empty Bowls Arts Festival held by the Airdrie Regional ARTS Society. All proceeds will go to support the Airdrie Food Bank.

Local patrons can check this painting and others at Benjamin's Coffee House all the way up to the auction on June 19th. Check here for ticket info for this charity event!
