A spring not far off

Sometimes paintings work and sometimes I’m not sure. One thing is for certain, self doubt and fear of failure aren’t useful in the artist’s world.

The first painting was inspired from my stay on Galiano Island in 2006, working from my own photograph. Galiano is one of the Southern Gulf Islands between Vancouver Island and the lower mainland of British Columbia. The dark strips of land are the Ballingall Islets.

Trincomali Channel. Oil on canvas panel, 16.5″x20″, 2011.

A diptych inspired by Francis Poulenc’s (1899-1963) Sonata for the violin and piano.

Intermezzo. Acrylic on canvas panel, 8″x16″, 2011.

And Sonny the kitten got to go outside for the first time last week. Now she’s running all over the yard with Mama Bootsy, supervised by yours truly.

    What a lyrical set of paintings! They’d surely grace most walls. The alert little kitten is adorable, and I think she’s enjoying last autumn’s leaves.

    I hope you are right. If those are your kittens – they are too cute!

    I’m back, like a moth to the flame, to haunt the beautiful reds and oranges in “Intermezzo.” I wish this jpeg were bigger so I could steal and post on my desktop. Hint.
