The South Shore

I saw "The South Shore" from a window looking out over the Hillsborough Bay just at the point where the three rivers, North, West and Hillsborough, meet. It was a fleeting look and I retained an image in my mind of the light on the water and in the sky.



The first work on paper was very spontaneous and was finished very quickly. It became a study for this canvas which is one of three hanging in The Dunes at Brackley Beach.
 
Dimensions: 18" x 20", Medium: acrylic on canvas.

Free Range Fields

Free Range Fields portrays the landscape of Prince Edward Island with its distinctive red soil. The potato field appears animated as the green rows and furrowed red soil rush down to the sea. The sky is reflected in the water.





This canvas is one of a series that highlights the rural views of Prince Edward Island and is one of three hanging in The Dunes at Brackley Beach.

Dimensions: 20" x 26", Medium: acrylic on canvas.

The Faces in Question

Drawings start with a doodle and expand into something a little more developed.

 The elements find themselves in need of rearranging,


or elaboration,


 or rescue!
