A Life Disrupted!

A Life Disrupted
I just won an Arts and Letters Award for this piece, A Life Disrupted. The awards ceremony was hosted at The Rooms on Saturday night and I felt so honored to be among so many talented people from this province. You can view the exhibition at The Rooms until May 26th. (my birthday) :)

Urchin, Shell and Crab!

Walking the beach and searching for treasures is something that I've always loved to do. I was so delighted when I came upon this little trio of sea creatures just laying there waiting for me to paint them. The gorgeous, rich color of the crab and the deep shadows cast by the brightly shining sun compelled me to create a watercolor full of light and memories.

Lemarchant Road!

The lovely color of the stone and the shadows cast by the brightly shining sun on a warm Spring day inspired me to paint this very interesting house on the corner. I loved the huge trees in front standing guard providing a place for the birds to sing their beautiful songs for any who may be walking past to hear and enjoy.

Chestnuts and Leaves!

My kids loved to collect chestnuts when they were small. We would go to the park for the day where the most amazing chestnut trees stood and they would run happily from tree to tree excitedly collecting chestnuts in a bag to be taken home and planted later. Sometimes they would lay the chestnuts on the ground among the fallen Autumn leaves and admire their find. Those days are gone but I captured that moment in time and created a painting that will always remind me of those cool Fall days spent with my family.
