For the birds!

Always experimenting, I started painting birds (I am an avid photographer, and one of my favourite pastimes is bird watching). You might want to check out some of my photos.

Landscapes

After my 40 year hiatus, I started painting again, which took a lot of work and time to get to the point where I was able to do a presentable work of art.  Here are a few of my landscapes:

SPIRIT ISLAND, JASPER

JASPER AT SUNRISE

WHITE LAKE

MOUNTAIN REFLECTION

HELMKYN FALLS, BC

Abandoned houses

There are times when I need to expand my horizons, try painting something different and unusual.  I love old houses that have a story to tell, these three are an example. Some people like these paintings, some asked me “why did you paint them?” My answer: ” I had to”.

 

SWAMP HOUSE

HISTORICAL VICTORIAN

HAUNTED HOUSE

Paintings from the ocean to the prairies, old trucks and cars

Painting has always been a part of me, I relish the times when I can sit at my dining room table, and create.  My husband and I went to Vancouver Islands years ago, and these two photos emerged. They are hung in our dining room.

      

 

 

 

 

 

I was born and “partially” raised (I am an Army Brat) in Calgary, Alberta, and the beauty of the prairies and mountains are not only captured by my camera, but by my paint brush as well:

 

I also love old cars and trucks, especially if I discover them buried in grass or covered with branches and leaves in the woods.  These two are not far from where I live.
