This painting was a challenge! There are so many wee details in the photo reference for this one that I was hard pressed to decide which were important and which I could simplify. These are my grandparents Victor and Clara Matson. I believe this was taken in the mid 50s. It was a bright sunny day so they’re both squinting as they smile. A treasure of a photo. Enjoy!
I spent some time today painting 4”x4” aluminum tiles for Lloydminster’s mosaic. It’s a huge project and I was fascinated to see how it all came together in just a few days. Hundreds of tilesnpainted by individuals in the community. The mural “train” runs clear across Canada. Lloydminster’s features our clock tower and all things lloyd (border markers, wheat, oil, business logos, pets, whatever people love. Here are a few of the photos I took today. I’ll post a photo of the installed mural in about 3 weeks at the celebration.
I’ve just returned from spending 3 weeks beach-side, surrounded by the jungle in Japan. It was wonderful to spend time with our daughter and her family there.
I put together this abstract which, for me, evokes memories of the light enjoyed by the residents at Takayama Beach Company on sunny summer days. I hope it makes you think of summer too!
Welcome! I hope you enjoy my painting blog. Painting gives me so much joy and I love sharing my journey. Thanks for visiting!
