ready for the third gallery

These three are going to The Dunes Gallery as soon as I can deliver them. All three were very difficult to photograph accurately and look better in real life, and I forgot to take a picture of "Kitchen Table" , done on suede matboard, until it was framed under glass.  All are oil pastels
"Heritage Road Haymeadow", 11x14          (EDIT: this one is now at Details, Past and Present)                                                               SOLD

Heritage Roads in P.E.I. are unpaved and cannot be developed within a certain distance of the road.
"Kingston Hills",   6 1/2x14 1/2     SOLD

"Kitchen Table"  8 1/2x 8 1/2   This is a larger version of a little one I did in 2009, now in a private collection.

I've been out a few times with my oil pastels and have done some plein air work, just little ones. They are posted in the blog section of my page on the Plein Air Painters website.

Winter 2012

First commission of 2012:

 This is a scene from the unique Caribbean island of Saba. The reference photo is mine, taken in March 2011, and is a view of Mt. Scenery, a dormant volcano. The person who commissioned it had spent time on Saba the previous year.

I am now represented in Saint John by Handworks Gallery
These 3 paintings (from 2011 except for the third one, which was completed this year) are now hanging there.



Just delivered these 3  to Details Past and Present Gallery in Charlottetown:


Now I'm getting a few ready for when The Dunes opens next month, and will show them in a later post.

All of the above are oil pastels. Here are a few in other media.
This is a small gouache study. I will likely use it for a studio painting later on.

These are all done for the WetCanvas Weekend Drawing Events. The stray cat is PanPastels on Canson, and the other two are acrylics.                      (SOLD)
