Winter is the coldest season of the year, in the northern hemisphere from December to February and in the southern hemisphere from June to August. It's a time associated with plunging temperatures and icy weather, but a season that can provide angry blizzards, yet stunning views of nature's palette.

  • Sundown

Sundown

Acrylic
16" x 12"
$300

Sunsets are always a great way to start a painting. It can be challenging otherwise to get some vivid colors into a winter scene. My parents last home was on a rural road surrounded by farms and bush; so, this is a nostalgic piece of those cozy winter nights all snug inside while outside the air was crisp and sometimes the wind howled loudly.


  • Sunday Afternoon Family Skate

Sunday Afternoon Family Skate

Acrylic
16" x 12"
$300

Some of my fondest memories are of skating on an open pond. I know there are rinks around Hamilton but they can become very busy. A private pond is much more fun because you know all the people. We had great games of tag and made long lines of people hand in hand making a human "whip". Great fun and good exercise too!

These are my paintings from my 2017 exhibition, "A Conversation With Trees". They were created using an image transfer process incorporating several of my photographs combined with painted layers and other media.

  • Spring Lies Underfoot

Spring Lies Underfoot

Mixed Media
8" x 8"
SOLD

There is a sublime beauty to winter, that I am very drawn to: a beautiful stillness, nature in repose, yet I can feel the energy of life below my feet, just wanting to surface in the spring. I like the black shape of my friend's legs agains the starkenss of the snow.


  • All Is White

All Is White

Mixed Media
10" x 10"
SOLD

Though not fond of winter, strangely enough, it has a magic quality that inspires and fascinates me. I like the subdued colour palette and bare brancehs of trees that move in the wind, agains moody winter skies and falling snow.


  • Stillness

Stillness

Mixed Media
8" x 8"
SOLD

Branches encased in ice, creating wonderful textures; a world frozen after the 2013 ice storm. For me, it was a moment of exhilerating excitement and seemed to unlock my creativity and change me to take my art into a new direction.
