Secrets Series #1

I am going to try something a little different. The paintings will vary in size, most will be quite large. The first is Sky, Forest and Pond done in a watery style. On two squares of recycled wood I have painted what is hidden in the Forest. A perfect robins nest, three robins egg blue eggs safe inside, far from prying eyes. In the bracken of the forest lies a newborn Fawn, safe in its ability to disappear into the colors at the bottom of the trees. Hidden from predators eyes.

The one I have started today will be Urban Secrets. Two Apartment buildings with soft sandstone colors, large windows impossible to see into on a sunny day. The secrets will be revealed on small canvases, one to be Despair, one to be Hope and one to be Death. We all wonder whats behind the windows we pass. In all of us is a little "peeping Tom" though we will deny it. #2 in my series will let you see what is hidden behind those windows.

A Gift For my Nephew - Wolf Cub

This one is almost complete. The softening of the fur is the final step and is time consuming as each bit has to be stroked with a fine brush. it will be lovely when done.

Snow Suit Fundraiser Successful

We raised over $1100 for the snow suit fund this year. Well done! The crowd was small, it seems night might not be the best time for this sort of event, but everyone was enthusiastic and the auction was great. Lots of nice items and my two paintings fetched a respectable amount for the charity.

October 16th Fund Raiser - Art Auction

On October 16th at 7p.m. there will be a fund raiser for the Childrens Aid Snow Suit Fund. It is being held at The Grinds in Perth. 1 Sherbrook Street. Inside the old Shoe Factory. The Grinds coffee shop has graciously allowed us the use of their premises. As the group putting this on is the Perth Writers Guild it will mainly be literary. Authors will read from their published works and sign and sell their books. There will be a live auction and I have donated the two paintings you see here. There will be numerous other items of interest to be auctioned. I hope you can come out that evening in support of the Snowsuit Fund.

The Grizzly - Price $1200.00

This is a very large painting of a fierce Grizzly Bear. It would be best displayed as the only piece on a wall, unframed.

The Old Bucket

I had a few suggestions as to the Dragonfly and did put one in at the end of the shovel. Looks pretty good there.
