I know, I know, I'm always talking about the beach. But see what I find there.  Beach valentines. And the colours!  Wearing lots of green beach jewelry lately.  When I swim it wraps around my wrists and tucks itself into my suit so that I find it when...

Sometimes when I'm not sure about the painting I can still enjoy the palette. This is a big one, 30" x 40".  I have to do some more work on the middle of the flower.  It was a bit fiddly and made the spots behind my...

I think this might be a stinker but I'm not sure.  I can't seem to give up on it.  It's a little guy again (but wait till you see what I'm working on now!!!), as you can see by the bumpy canvas surface (should I...

Yes, I got a bit of time for painting!!!  Just a few hours but more to come!!! This is on Thormanby island, looking west.  All about sun, sand, and sparkly water. Not a very big painting, just 8x8, but it felt so good.  I'm very impatient to get back to...
