My focus is exploring, creating and reflecting upon the positives of life and connecting them to my art whether it be photography, pen and ink drawings, watercolour paintings, mixed media, digital media or any other possible media I dive into!
I hope you join me on my art adventure!

Positively Surrounded By Canola
Now that the summer days are actually sunny, I have noticed that I am positively surrounded by canola. The bright yellowy green fields provide beautiful contrast to the amazingly blue skies and the deep green grass surrounding it. This painting is a compilation of different images I have seen in the past few days, brilliant yellow canola fields, bright red barns, black tractor tire planters (don't we all have one?), what I imagined farm houses should look like, yes I am a traditionalist, fields of freshly baled hay, and of course, fence posts. My challenge was to do the painting in one hour. Hopefully, the scent of the canola won't drive my head crazy, but for now, I appreciate being positively surrounded by the beautiful, brilliant yellow canola fields!
