This one was a real blast to paint! I had to be very careful with placement and the amount of splatters and blobs!
I'm off for the rest of July! I may blog from vacation but if not, see you in August!

$80 - 8x10"painting
Continuing with my abstract art and really enjoying it! I always draw first then add watercolour paint however, this style has me jumping between drawing and painting... painting and drawing... just mixing it up.

fallen tree

$60 - 5x7"painting with 8x10"mat.
My aim for this piece was to keep the line and brush work as expressive as possible. This was done at the awesome Toronto Botanical Gardens when I didn't plan on being there, but was prepared to paint just in case!

This little eyeshadow case that I converted into a watercolour palette is wonderful. It really enables me to sit and paint anywhere and at any time.

pizza oven...mmm!


I spent the day at the lovely Riverdale Farm which was originally the Toronto Zoo. This lovely stone pizza oven heats up yummy pizzas on Sundays at noon!
