Sketchbook Selections

Here are several selections of recent sketches from my travel sketchbook. I’ve had a number of sketchbooks but this is my old go to comfort one. I’ve been carrying it around in my purse for years. It’s become quite battered with dented corners and dirty edges. These sketches are from the very last pages as the book is finally filled up. I feel a little sad that I won’t be bringing it along with me anymore.

Bits and Bobs 5

I’ve been busy putting together a small show that’s currently running at a local performing arts centre. Here are 3 new pieces that I included in the exhibit. They’re all acrylic on 6′ x 6′ gallery wrapped canvas.

Foggy Corner

It’s a little hard to get an idea of the scale of these small canvases. I refrained from cropping this photo in order to provide reference points to better illustrate the sizes.

West Lorne Street Front- Study

W. Lorne Study

I live in a rural area with many communities that have suffered due to economic changes. As a result you don’t have to look hard to find those changes reflected on the small town main streets. I’ve been working with this study on and off for awhile now and since I began someone has started to restore these buildings. It’s great news for the community (but a little problematic for me as I realized about halfway through I wished I’d taken more resource photos- oops 😉 ).
