Morning Commute

12”X12” Oil on canvas

It’s about 7:30 am, somewhere between St. Catharines and Niagara-on-the-Lake, late Summer.

This is one that I think I will submit to the Small Feats show at NAC on April 6. All 12×12 paintings will be offered for $200 with some or all proceeds going to the Niagara Artists Centre

Evening Commute

12″X12″ Oil on canvas

I seem to have spent my entire adult life living west of my place of work. This means that for about three months of the year I am driving into the sun in the mornings or the evenings (or both).
Driving from Niagara-on-the-Lake to St. Catharines requires crossing the Welland Canal. There are several lift bridges as well as a high-level “Skyway”. This is the Lakeshore Rd. bridge, by Lock 1. The date would be somewhere in early November.
I think I will submit this one to the “Small FeatsNAC fundraiser.

Smugglers’ Cove (again)

12″X12″ Oil on canvas

I painted this in a smaller format a few years ago, all of these pieces are based on smaller oil sketches..

This is one of those almost secret spots in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Tucked down a steep path, on the bank of the river, there is a small marina here. From the name we can assume it was used for more nefarious purposed at one time. The far bank is Youngstown NY.

I’m back (maybe)

12″X12″ Oil on canvas

I finally have some time on my hands and am able to paint again with some regularity, so perhaps I can post a little more frequently too.

Every April, NAC (Niagara Artists Centre) hold a fund-raiser called “Small Feats”. I have posted about it before but I haven’t submitted anything for a couple of years. Over the past couple of weeks I have painted 7 square foot paintings with a view to choosing 3 to submit for consideration. I think I already know which ones I will submit, but I will post them all here anyway. They all have a Niagara theme, as do most of my paintings.

This one shows a couple of the wind machines that guard our vineyards against late and early frost. Everywhere else in the world a windmill usually generates electricity, here in wine country they actually require propane to run.

Small Feats WIP

The Niagara Artists Centre holds a fundraiser every year called “Small Feats”. Members are invited to submit up to three paintings (12″X12″) and they will be sold at a special event on Saturday April 12th with half or all of the proceeds going to NAC.

I participated a couple of years ago and plan to do so again this year. Last time I painted three “Niagara Winter Morning” pictures.

I liked the way they worked together and decided to try a similar theme this time. I am painting three “Niagara Sky” pictures and as I am going to be away for a couple of weeks in March, I thought I should get started. Here are my works in progress.

Valentines Day

I am trying again with Ebay and listing a few small paintings. Just in time for Valentines Day, why not give something a little more permanent this year?these small paintings (5″x7″) are all signed but unframed, oil on board. Fresh flowers wilt, chocolates are soon consumed but these will last a lifetime (or more)
