Serendipidy

 

Serendipidy is a 24 inch x 36 inch acrylic palette knife and brush painting. The inspiration for this painting (and also my other recent painting Serenity”) came from a recent weekend up in Whistler with my youngest daughter. I noticed all of the lovely birch trees in gardens around the hotels and stores. One of the days while we were there, it was overcast with a grey sky back shadowing the trees. I was quite taken with the relaxing effect it gave in combination with the soft white of the birch. It felt very serene……and caught my eye while sipping my Earl Grey tea from a local coffee shop.

The Weekend

“The Weekend” is an acrylic palette knife painting in memory of a recent weekend up in Whistler with my youngest daughter. We both with our busy lives had such a rejuvenating time there with lots of laughs returning home with  a spring in our step.

The trees in this painting were made to reflect the essence of inukshuks as there was a large one very close to where we were staying in the main village. As we were biking and and taking long walks, I began to see the local trees as large supportive inukshuks lining the paths and guiding the way………to more of a relaxed state of mind letting go of the stressors of life and being more in the moment with my daughter.

The Wild Of Bamfiled, BC

“The Wild Of Bamfield” is a 30 inch x 40 inch acrylic palette knife painting reflecting the wild nature of Bamfield, British Columbia. Last year, I was lucky to spend four days at the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre (http://www.bamfieldmsc.com/) with my daughter on a school fieldtrip. We learned an incredible amount about our environment and marine life from the biologists there. I loved the untamed feel of this coastal area.

“The New Venture” is a  24″ x 36″ palette knife painting of a skier/snowshoer up in the mountains around Whistler, British Columbia. It reminds me of the feeling I get when I start a new venture with new ideas and fun possibilities:)
