This is my 1st Blog Post.

Remember the minus cold below nights back in January! I sure did, trying to keep warm with wool blankets and drinking ginger tea, eating curry. I am sure glad the cold snap is over!!

On those cold nights I painted 5 new "Northern Lights" paintings, sizes 5x7. I was experimenting with trying to get that green emerald color in the sky, not an easy thing to do, because you have to put all the paint at once and hope for the best. I had to try many times, my favorite one is the 8x10 with the caribou walking down hill.

My "Backlit" Heron was taken at Burnaby Lake, with the early morning sun lighting up his back and head.

Also, the above painting and photo are now in the LUMINESCENCE Art Show.

A juried art show at the Deer Lake Gallery in Burnaby, now until April 8th.

Reception this Sat March 18th at 7:00 pm.

You can also click on ART SHOWS on my website, for where I will be showing next. And, I will also NOT be sending out all my less urgent blogs, so you read them anytime on my website.

Have a good day, Spring is arriving soon I hope!


Thanks again, will keep you posted
