It's snowing like crazy here in Toronto! Fortunately, it's been mild, so it's the fun kind of snow... sleigh day snow! The fire escape was fun to paint. It is one of the few fire escapes on the houses around here. (I may have overdrawn it, but it's still cool looking). ; )

$100 - 6x8" original oil painting with sides painted to match.
These cheerful violets with their bright yellow centres are certainly lightening the snowy mood today. Just because it's cold outside doesn't mean you can't find some cheer for inside. ; )

I was missing my watercolour paints, what with all the oil painting I've been doing, so I painted this wonderful little still life. Fridge contents make great subjects!

|(see the cat?!)|
These are the latest oil sketches I've done... all on Zoom with my awesome Portrait Pals. : ) I call them sketches because the poses are short and the panels are about 7x9". Sometimes I touch them up but often, I leave them alone. They are what they are! : )

Another great Zoom Portrait Sessions. WooHoo! I think the whole group of artists, who pose for each other for 20 minutes, are all getting really good. This weekly practise is really paying off. Everyone has improved!! And today, being Halloween, the costumes made things super fun. Happy Halloween Y'all!!

Meet Blossom Bear! She's been helping me out with my hand studies lately. Hee hee. She's added a nice touch to my little oil painting project. Over the years I've collected lots of finger puppets... and there will be more cutie-patooties to come!

Dogs go back to school in September... don't they? ; ) This smart Husky sure does. Well, more like go to the beach and fetch sticks and splash around in the water... #hehe Seriously, I love the fall and I guess because of school, I still feel like September is the start of a 'new year'.

6x6" original oil painting on 3/4" panel
Well, that's the second spoon I ever painted! (The first was from a Carol Marine reference photo and this one is from a Sarah Sedwick photo). Reflections in silver are always fun, like the green apples, but this time there's a kick on light on the inside of the creamer! Every painting brings a new little somethin'-somethin' to the game. ; )
