“Bee-ing There”, 2021

Bee-ing There

Bee-ing There, oils on gallery canvas, 10″ x 10″. My inspiration was the Echinacea in my garden which is usually visited by bees all summer long.

“Early Autumn at the Lake”, 2021

Early Autumn at the Lake

Early Autumn at the Lake,  acrylics on canvas, 8″ x 16″ came from a moment on the deck at our cottage. We chose to leave a maple sapling alone that was growing very close to the deck. It rewards us each autumn with glorious colour.

Pond Lilies, 20″ x 20″ acrylics on canvas, 2021


Pond Lilies, 20″ x 20″, acrylics on canvas, 2021 – There’s an abundance of healthy yellow Pond Lilies on South Portage Lake near Haliburton, Ontario. The forested hills all around the lake and the strong reflections in the waters of this small spring-fed lake can result in absolutely stunning sunrises and sunsets. The lilies in front of our cottage were my inspiration for painting Pond Lilies. Gallery – Up Close with Nature
