Thank You From The Bottom Of My Heart

The love I felt was huge


First off I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your interest in my articles, artwork and my journey. My previous article was about my life and coping with a chronic illness. The support I received was overwhelming, I cannot express how it touched me to read all of the comments and emails that were sent. I so appreciate those who shared their own story. The love I felt was huge. Thank you. I am so grateful to be able to share my passion with such a wonderful group. I was really blown away.

So as you know I took a little break (I needed to produce some paintings) and decided that going forward I will be doing bi-monthly articles. I would like to do some in-depth demos and weekly doesn’t allow for that. I put a lot of work into the articles and I still need time to paint 🙂


Paintings for an upcoming group show about the Weather

Secondly, I thought I would share what I have been up to. I have been hard at work painting. These are paintings that I did for a group show on the weather. The show is at the Fog Forest Gallery in Sackville, New Brunswick and opens September 13th.

These paintings are done with acrylic and I really enjoyed painting them. I find the more I paint the more I move away from realism especially with my acrylics and oils.

My Studio is Empty Without You


I wanted to share this picture again. Since my last post, my sweet dog Jack has left us. It is so hard to lose a beloved pet. They are our family. Jack was in my studio every time I was, it is empty in here without him. He had a wonderful life, he was 12 and 3/4s, he was loyal and always had a wag in his tail (actually his whole back end lol) He will be forever missed. Poor Charlie keeps looking for him :(.

Experience the Joy of Art
