Landscapes and skies

Life drawing, portraits & still life 

I am fascinated by the formation of clouds and the wonderful complexity of the sky. Most of my work in this area is done on canvas with oils.

I began  to explore botanical drawing and painting over 30 years ago when we moved from Toronto to a  beautiful country property in Carlisle, Ontario.

Light on glass or crystal objects is another focus in my new work on the iPad. Most of my compositions are about immediate surroundings or valued possessions. 

A sampling of my works since 1975 when I first began to work in visual art. A real pot-pourri!
