Summer Garden poppy paintiing Check out my ETSY store

Summer Garden

Heavily textured painting of red poppies.

Last summer, the island in our cul de sac was a sea of beautiful red poppies.  I loved it!!  This summer, it is daisies.  So lovely, with a little path and a couple of benches to sit and enjoy the flowers.  Jordyn Lavallee seems to be doing all the weeding though.  I think about it, then she's already been out there doing it. 
I'll post a photo of it soon.

This painting is done primarily with a pallet knife and lots of paint.  It is gallery wrapped and finished with a coat of varnish.  Signed and ready to hang.
Proudly made in Canada!

Golden Moments dog portrait golden retriever Check out my ETSY store
Golden Moments
8 x 10
acrylic on canvas
painted on the sides ready to hang.
We were walking in the park near our house with our granddaughter and met a nice lady with her
kids and her beautiful dog.
I asked if I could take a picture of her dog, explaining that I am an artist, and she said yes.
I later realised that I didn't pay much attention to her children, ooops. 
But her golden retriever made a great model.

The Boys of Fall
These boys played football all three years in high school, and won the Wheatland division all three years, 2008, 2009 and 2010.
This June they will graduate, and go out into the world, taking with them the friendships and memories created and strengthened on the field.
