Mia Moo - a pet portrait


"Mia Moo"    SOLD
9" x 9" Acrylic on gallery wrap (with painted sides)

This wonderful Great Dane was a commission that was going to be given as a gift. This beauty's attitude really came through in the photo I was given...what a great way to spend my birthday. It was fun using so many colours even though Mia Moo is black and white, I did not use black! I just love her name! I also worked on another commission that I will post later.

Purple Dance



Purple Dance
Plein Air Oil on canvas board 8" x 10"
$75 unframed      #20013915

Instead of a vista, this time I looked for something closer at hand. These flowers were in the arched gate entrance to the back yard in Sicamous. It felt strange setting up my easel in the driveway, but enjoyed the fact I didn't have to pack everything so far.

Sicamous Public Beach View

I found a shady spot under a very large tree next to the sandy public beach. The sky started out clear but quickly turned very smokey resulting in very pale muted background mountains and hills and a very flat view. It a very peaceful scene and as I was painting early in the morning, the beach was empty except for 1 family so very calm and peaceful as well. The view is just left of my easel with the channel marker for the boats going in and out of the channel.
