When the sun shines there are some interesting shapes to paint.

Winter Shadows 2

Acrylic on panel  8″x 8″

Some days the shadow is really vibrant against the snow and winter cattails. It seems the colder the darker.

Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery Exhibition

Looking Forward: Creating our Future                                                                                      November 3 – December 31, 2016                                                                                                          This is the painting I submitted for the  group exhition this year.


This painting represents the genetically modified tomato, first introduced in 1994 as the Flavr Savr. The insertion of a GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) into a plant changes its DNA and therefore changes the very essence of that plant. The foreign genes may come from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals or even humans. This creates a whole new plant that now may contain insecticides, fungicides, antibiotics, etc. and are owned and patented by big corporations.
The long term future effects on the environment, economy and our health are all still unknown.

More plein air painting





I was at the Lake of the Rivers again and thought I should show a bit of water this time.  I am still working from the same place…. today was the day of lady bugs and a little gopher who was watching me.

out again same place different view


This is at the same coulee by the Lake of the Rivers but just looking further along. It was done just a few days after the last one but somehow I never got it posted. So the colors are still july colors and the only wild adventure that day was a woodtic and garter snake.

Out Again

2016-07-02 15.29.18This is the second time I got out to paint at the Lake of the Rivers. The coulee is so beautiful with such a range of color. What a challenge to get the light colors in.  The weather was hot and windy but lovely. A mother deer and her fawn came up behind  me curious. She had been pawing at the ground ( she left two big holes in the ground that I saw after), which I never heard and then she snorted …which led me to scream …which then scared the both of them off. So I decided I better be a little more aware of my surroundings when Im out there!
