Bailey 12 x 12 Acrylic on Canvas
I love that my friend chose a puppy photo for her commemorative portrait of her sweet Bailey. Even though she looks cute, she gave me quite a battle, and it took me three different tries until I felt that I had it "right'.  I'm glad I kept starting over, as...

Oakley 8x8 Acrylic on Canvas
I thought it would be fun to try to paint an owl on a smaller, square canvas as I usually paint them in a much larger, rectangular shape. It also gave me a chance to play around with the background colour (something I have been doing a lot of lately). I l...

Bart 18 x 24 Acrylic on canvas
I confess - I love to paint roosters! They have such attitude, and it is fun to paint something so bold and bright. I will be taking this guy and a few of his friends to On the Farm in Squamish tomorrow. I'm delighted that they will be showing some of my...

Harry 12x16 Acrylic on Canvas
I was feeling a little festive for Easter and thought I'd try to paint a hare. I've tried to paint a few other bunnies last year, but this is the first one that I've been happy with. I went with more of a neutral background but I love how you can still se...

This is my largest owl yet at 18 x 36 - I love his bushy brows! Oswald is headed up to Art Junction in Whistler tomorrow with a few of his friends. It made my day yesterday to hear that Big Al the Moose, and Norbert the Owl were both sold, and the gallery ...

Opie 36 x 12 Acrylic on Canvas
I have to confess I think this guy is one of my favorites.  I went with a taller canvas for him, and stuck with warmer colours for the background.  I think it works well with his brown feathers.  I hope you like him too

Pearl 10x10 Acrylic on Canvas
I confess the process of listing, and selling my house, hasn't exactly helped get my creative juices flowing.  When this happens, I often will revisit some of my favorite reference photos.  It's easier to take risks when I'm already in my comfort zone, and ...
