I painted the more formal gardens with established structure of Van Dusen Botanical Gardens. I had to paint this piece in a hurry as one of the gardeners asked me to move.
I painted this little piece in the Sunflower Garden in Van Dusen Botanical Gardens. The Sunflower faces all look towards the sun.
So many great memories of the wonderful little town of Lahaina, Maui. The fire that destroyed the town of Lahaina, Maui is now a sad fact of life and will always be hard to accept.
The daffodil fields in Chilliwack are a lovely sight to see! I painted this from photos I took when the daffs were in bloom.
Hydrangeas again, I can’t stop myself…so fun to paint!
The white Hydrangeas are in full bloom! One of my favourites!
With so many lovely flowers out in bloom this time on year it is nice to take advantage of what is in the garden to set up a bouquet for painting!
I set up my light box with a few different floral bouquets. Here is the result and I am pretty happy with it! A prelude to a larger piece, perhaps. This was my first time painting on dura-lar, it is very smooth and the brush flows around the flowers with ease. Very Fun!!
Right in my own backyard, so close to home. Lovely to paint in the shade and observe the filtered sun patterns change momentarily throughout the day!
I have always loved the look of an Air Stream trailer. Such a classic! This one often parks close to where I often walk and the reflections on its walls are very fun to paint!
