I have never done one of these, so why not give it a go?

When my daughter asked me to do a paint and wine event at her home I was unsure. It takes years of training and practice to become an artist. But that's not the point of this art party is it? It's about learning a...

30 paintings in 30 days. Nope not gonna happen.

But I did paint and I did learn something from the daily painting exercise.

"DAILY" doesn't necessarily mean daily. Not every painting has to be a masterpiece - smaller daily paintings allowed me to attempt to take a more...

Wish me luck! This will be a very interesting ride.

Have you heard of those daily painting challenges? It was started by Duane Keiser in 2004. The daily painting movement or “painting a day concept” is the practice of creating a painting a day during a certain time peri...

I am very excited to start a new commission.

This work will be acrylic on stretched canvas. 30" x 40". This blog will take you through the process from start to finish giving an insight into my thought process and practical application of the paint.

Landing your trophy. You may think you have your fish whipped and you’ve brought it in close enough to touch, but the fight isn’t over yet!

grateful for all of my patrons, family, and friends that have and continue to support me in my journey. Honestly, I could never have done it without you all.

I am excited for what this n...

These small paintings are so much fun to do. I find them a wonderful escape into the things I love like fly fishing and history. I am presently on the hunt for a suitable frame for this work.

I was recently watching a program about Salmon fishing in Canadian rivers duri...

Celebrities, shopping, artwork and workshops, fans of all things pop culture. My paintings are ready.

Third year in a row participating in the Artist Alley at the Vancouver Fan Expo and approaching each show a tad differently.  This year I painted comic panels that refl...

I am in the process of transforming a Vintage motorhome into a mobile art studio experience. A little spray paint, a little airbrush... presto! a hand painted graphic.

DAY 1:  My goal on Day 1 was to map out the sketch and have base colours on the entire surface of...
