One of my new paintings that was  exhibited from September 5th  to Otober 26th in  the Lobby Gallery, Regina Performing Arts Centre, 1077 Angus St   

 

The theme and title is New Ground: Explored and Revealed and was exhibited with the Regina Art Collective. 

 

In this exhibition I have used my drawings that I did while walking or riding as a starting point for the paintings. The drawings became layered and more obscured as I was drawing  while moving.  The paintings  all have red backgrounds to symbolize the wild strawberries that were found on the prairie land that was settled and where my first studio sat. 

 

 

 


My first garden in several years and what a jungle it has turned out to be with overgrown plants and vines creeping all over the place.  As subject matter I was interested in the undergrowth view on my knees close to the ground.  Here are two of the results. 

 










Sitting amongst 5 of the 42 panels. My 1000 painting project finished in 2 1/2 years.  Now just numbering and mounting left to do.  



A few productive days in the Wallace Stegner House in Eastend Saskatchewan with artist Paula Timm resulted in reaching painting #500 of the 1000 painting project. 






Painting on the beach in Mexico is a great way to spend time on a holiday.
