I challenged my Artistic self.........and I did it!

"My Lily" in 4 different Mediums!
This past summer, I challenged myself to paint this photo reference in 4 different mediums. The positive image of these white lilies drew me in and inspired me to paint a watercolour. Then this spring these same Oriental Casa Blanca Lilies came up and I decided to do an outdoor oil painting on wood. Next year the plan is to set up an easel with my oil painting on top of these blooming lilies at my front door to invite my friends and family. In July, I experimented with an acrylic on canvas. Today, I finished framing my watercolour & batik on rice paper and I am thrilled with the results!

Introducing ......

"Forest Floor" #697 Watercolour & Pen $350
 I have always been inspired to paint the intriguing knotting and knurls of the tree trunks at McGowan Falls. I marvel how these roots grow alongside the rocky terrain.
This summer, I took a break in teaching and new workshops now begins in September.

Show was a great success!

Every year, we meet old friends and make
new acquiantances. The show had a great
variety of art (watercolours, oils, acrylics,
jewellery, pottery, metal work, etc...)

The extra work was well worth it and returned home with 3 less paintings!

Hope that you have
a chance to stop by
for a coffee and visit
the Saugeen Room!

Our local Waterfalls and
the Saugeen River provided
me inspiration to paint
scenes not far from home.

Take the time this summer
and travel the waterfall tour.
You will enjoy every minute!

Thank you Cava Coffee Cafe for the

I like to thank my friend Tina Concetta Revie for taking a picture today at the Grand Opening of the Owen Sound Banners.  I was unable to attend because I was teaching a watercolour/batik workshop of the "Chantry Island Lighthouse" (off-site workshop through the Southampton Art School). The weekend weather was perfect to paint outside and everyone created beautifull paintings!

This  new method has alot more challenges, than my usual watercolours
but the end result gives me complete satisfaction!
Rice paper certainly creates an unique painting each time!

INTRODUCTION of 2012 SERIES "Lighthouses near & far" in Watercolour & Batik

I have added another painting to my series in the Painting Gallery. The name of this new painting "Thames River Mouth Lighthouse at Lake St Clair". Last January, my brother and his wife took us to visit this lighthouse of our childhood. There was a log jam and debris preventing the Thames River to flow into Lake St Clair.  This lighthouse brought back childhood memories of weekend summer fishing at the dock with my family.
I am enjoying this new technique of mix media using watercolours, pen, wax on rice paper!

What's special about this series is that the paintings will combine my love of wax and watercolours.

This particular painting of the Kincardine Lighthouse was created using watercolours, wax, and
pen on rice paper.  
Painting on rice paper have been around for over 2,000 years, and were established in China, Japan and Korea.  This ancient method of painting requires considerable practice and patience.  As I was learning, I recorded step-by-step instructions, so that I may one day teach a workshop to other artists.  I am planning to paint a few more lighthouses to feel more confident in this technique.
I do love the final effect and transparency of the final painting!

Check out my Painting Gallery as I introduce more paintings in this series!
