Fireflies in the Dusky Woods

I just completed this painting, which I’m delivering to Earls Court Gallery next week, for their “Out of the Back” show, featuring new work by gallery artists, February 23 to March 25. The painting is an exciting one for me in that there are figures in it (egads!) and it has a bit more of narrative feel. Fireflies in the Dusky Woods is derived from a bunch of photos I took of my three kids, meandering through the woods one evening when we were camping near Thunder Bay.

Three large paintings for December

The winter is my favourite time to be in the studio. I’ve completed these three pieces over the last few weeks, cozy indoors with the wood stove crackling, while it blusters and blows and snows out my windows. I love it!

The weather in Maynooth is getting chilly, but my wood stove is crackling warm and I’m happy and cozy in the studio! Even though the town has quietened down, The Black Spruce Gallery is still open.
