Staying at Home 9 – Vegetable Beds

Watercolour and ink on paper

Yesterday it was both warm and cool enough to sit outside and sketch for half an hour. We haven’t had many of those and when the weather was right I have been busy gardening. The boards are there to try to keep the animals from digging.

Still #uskathome in St. Catharines.

Lock 4 (again)

12”X12” acrylic on canvas

It looks as if the “Small Feats” fundraiser may have to be cancelled or postponed. This would be a shame as I know it is a significant source of income for the Niagara Artists Centre. Perhaps they will figure out a way of selling the paintings on line.
This is Lock 4 on the Welland Canal, as seen from the Glendale lift bridge. I am not sure why this view appeals to me, I have painted it before. I am reworking a lot of old themes these days, maybe with constant repetition I will finally be able to get them right. Sort of like a musician practicing her scales.

Sts. Cyril and Methodius (again)

12″X12” Acrylic on canvas

Here is another square foot painting, possibly for submission to Small Feats, the annual Niagara Artists Centre show and fundraiser. We shall see.
Sts. Cyril and Methodius is a Ukrainian Catholic church in St. Catharines. It is a familiar sight to anyone who drives the Queen Elizabeth Way between Hamilton and Niagara Falls, as it is right by the highway.
