From my sketchbook

I like sayings, motivational sayings.

Sometimes, doodling and not worrying about creating a "work of art" is
what is needed to get me motivated, to get me thinking about the next
project.  My sketch book is just for that. So sometimes I take a saying
that I like and just doodle with it - you never know where it will take you.

Calm Waters



This is a small 7x10 acrylic ink painting and the most recent one.  It seemed to be a lake painting right from the start and the rowboat, well that just seemed an appropriate fit.

Perched


This is a painting done in Acrylic inks and is 8x14 of 3 red winged blackbirds.  The fun part of these paintings is putting the colours down and letting them flow into a pattern. Then you find what you seen in them and what you can add to the create the illusion.

Birds of a Feather


This is one of my newer paintings in acrylic inks and one of the first done.  Acrylic Ink is a new medium for me and I'm finding I like the bright colours and semi abstract patterns.  This paintings is 14x10 on paper.

Along the Coquitlam River


This is a 14x10 painting of the area wooded hiking trail in Coquitlam, It leads up to Crystal Falls.
It is done with acrylics on paper.
