Google Art Project15,504,272Thursday *12 September at 11am ET*, join *Norman Rockwell Museum curators* Stephanie Plunkett and Joyce K. Schiller for a discussion of *the influences Norman Rockwell absorbed to become one of America’s most beloved illustrators.* They will look beyond the narratives of Norman Rockwell’s art to explore the deeper foundations of his paintings.  A creative force in 20th century American visual culture, Rockwell was an engaged observer of the world of art, and often called upon classic and contemporary masters for artistic direction and inspiration. This conversation reveals the depth of Rockwell’s interest in the art of other creators, and their impact on his imagery for the covers and pages of mass-circulation magazines.  *Ask your questions to the curators on this page* or by using  #Arttalks !Art Talk with the Norman Rockwell Museum: Norman Rockwell’s Influences and Borrowings2013-09-12 17:00:00369

Sunset Tonight on Chesterman Beach in Tofino.

There is this thing I have about studying a small patch of landscape. It takes days and even years to truly grasp the intricacies and relationships between the various elements. I am not done yet with this one bit of the beach! My apologies if you feel you have seen it enough already.

It was bloody windy and cold but here is today's quick 8 x10 inch acrylic sketch from Confederation Landing. Glorious sunshine, 8 degrees and my fingers got so stiff in the wind that I could hardly move them. I couldn't take photographs with my big camera as I was using it for a weight to keep the easel upright. Early spring Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Invigorating!

Sitting on the floor undecided as to what to do next. Nothing sort of has a nice ring to it.

Home studio mostly organized for visitors while I am away. Luck you and me, I have someone available to do the hosting. So just contact me in the usual way and arrangements will be made.

Crazy focused on getting all my stray ducks lined up in the next couple few days! But it is #earthday2016   today. I know, for me, it is earth day everyday. But just the same, I have released as print and merchandise "On the Rocks in Tofino" to celebrate. There is a new chiffon top that works well with this painting print. However, it is the throw pillow which has really caught my eye.

There is a tension for me in releasing products of my original painting on earth day. Yet, the original is certainly not something everyone can add to their personal art collection and not everyone can stand beside the ocean for days taking in its natural rhythms to balance their ever day lives. So, here we have a few accessible ways to enjoy the benefits of this work with many of them being ordinary objects use anyway. Enjoy!

New Release....
Cherry Blossoms Mayne Island Japanese Garden
20 x 24 inch oil on canvas

Clouds of pink blossoms fill the morning sky with petals drifting slowly onto the garden paths. It is Cherry blossom season in Mayne Island’s Japanese Garden. The season of sakura is here! Want to go hanami?

This painting was started plein air while standing on the edge of the path in the garden for several hours and then finished in the studio the next day. As I was painting, visitors came by who have lived on the island for more than twenty years and helped in the development of this garden. The Japanese Garden was built and is maintained by volunteers with funding that comes from donations. They told me that the current design was centered around nine original cherry trees that were planted by the Japanese family who owned the land before their interment in the second world war.

New Release....
Cherry Blossoms Mayne Island Japanese Garden
20 x 24 inch oil on canvas

Clouds of pink blossoms fill the morning sky with petals drifting slowly onto the garden paths. It is Cherry blossom season in Mayne Island’s Japanese Garden. The season of sakura is here! Want to go hanami?

This painting was started plein air while standing on the edge of the path in the garden for several hours and then finished in the studio the next day. As I was painting, visitors came by who have lived on the island for more than twenty years and helped in the development of this garden. The Japanese Garden was built and is maintained by volunteers with funding that comes from donations. They told me that the current design was centered around nine original cherry trees that were planted by the Japanese family who owned the land before their interment in the second world war. This garden is a way of acknowledging this part of Mayne Island's history and helping to heal the past. For me, as a painter in the garden that day, this acknowledgment and healing is alive and ongoing. While my brushes moved quickly across the canvas, a Japanese family came by to enjoy the garden and stopped to watch me paint. The grandmother spoke only in Japanese while the two young adults quickly translated both my words and her words mixed in with conversation and observations of their own. This painting of cherry blossoms holds what is left of our shared experiences or at least as much as I was able to render on the canvas.

Also, released as prints and merchandise on Redbubble at the same time. Link can be provide if desired.___

I do believe this painting has come together rather nicely this morning...

Cherry Blossoms Mayne Island Japanese Garden "resting" 18 x 24 inch oil on canvas

I will leave it for a bit now and wander off to do some of the other tasks on my list. Earlier this week a company was setting up a full page spread about my work for their catalogue. I slightly amused to see they had it in the section for "Realism." But if Van Gogh can be described as a realism painter by art historians because he painted from life then I suppose I can live with this categorization too.

Enjoy your Monday and I wish for you in a wee bit of time in nature doing nothing in particular!

Northern California Surf Building 16 x 20 inch oil on canvas

Knowing what is coming and yet unable to decide whether to stay or to move forward or back from the surf as it builds its strength before coming ashore again.

The first of three works in the series.

Happy Monday to you!

Chesterman Beach Sunset 20 x 24 inch oil on canvas

Those last moments before dark when broken promises are forgiven. Though less than perfection, it is okay and going to be alright. Sleep will come easy even as the rains come. Chesterman Beach in Tofino, British Columbia Canada.

How fast are you? If you have a moment, I am wondering if you could give me a hand - how fast can you find the online gallery with my original oil paintings and acrylic sketches from my website home page? Was it hard or easy? Where did you find the reference?

I have made some changes and your feedback would be most appreciated!

Today is whipping up a good storm with 12 foot waves forecast for this afternoon and 40 kmp winds from the west. The quite of last evening with a break in the rain coming at sunset is a fond memory.

It is early spring on the southwest coast of Canada and the plum trees are swishing their blossom skirts. So a little different kind of west coast landscape for you today. It is not released yet but maybe soon :)

Happy Tuesday from Mayne Island!

From up on the hill in Avignon looking across the river to Villeneuve les Avignon in France. A favourite artist of mine is Camille Corot. His landscape from Avignon called “Villeneuve-lez-Avignon La Tour Philippe le Bel” from 1843 struck a significantcord with me as I had stood in about the same place painting 171 years later.

Painting completed using plein air acrylic and photography sketches as references once I was back home in the studio.

If you are just beginning to paint, take the time to organize the bones of a composition maybe fifty or even a 100 times without ever proceeding to the tendons, muscles, skin, clothes and some fine jewelry of a finished painting. This skill, accomplished quickly with large brushes, is essential to the later quality of the painting. It is the support beams and studs of your painting building. This is not the time to be hanging curtains or putting down a throw rug! ....

I finally did it - a post on the basic steps to learning to oil paint wet-on-wet.

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY!

Today I thought, rather than a scattered acknowledgement of the many women artists that have come before me, I would choose just one and find one good read about that artist. I have chose the Italian Baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi (1593-1653) and an article from 2013 written by Marina Lorenzini in Hyperallergic.

The bonus is that there is a historical fiction novel about Artemisia by Susan Vreeland mentioned too ;)

Enjoy the read and all the best to women artists and women everywhere!



HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY!

Today I thought, rather than a scattered acknowledgement of the many women artists that have come before me, I would choose just one and find one good read about that artist. I have chose the Italian Baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi (1593-1653) and an article from 2013 written by Marina Lorenzini in Hyperallergic.

The bonus is that there is a historical fiction novel about Artemisia by Susan Vreeland mentioned too ;)

Enjoy the read and all the best to women artists and women everywhere!

The end of today's work....

"Plum Blossoms Japanese Garden" resting 20 x 16 inch oil on canvas

Well, this has been quiet the day! A plein air start in the garden this morning with rain and bright sun then slipping into my shelter. So took everything home and spent the afternoon in the studio continuing on with what I had started. But the canvas is now full of spring and can now be set aside for a second look in the tomorrow.

Quiet spring day in the studio with yesterday's painting that is still shiny and wet...

Suggestion of Daffodils 16 x 16 inch oil on canvas

This was painted as part of a colour and light and shadow demonstration in today's painting class. But no painting is simply a demonstration when one works at it until it comes to rest. At that point, the painting becomes part of teacher's learning in the rendering of the ordinariness of our everyday. I can still hear the sounds of the room and the smell of the flowers. Pure joy!

Okay, I do get out of the studio every once in a while. Enjoy! ....

Here are a few photographs by Glenda King and myself from the "Sense of Place" pop up art show at The Groove. Island Kitchen that was held on Sunday February 21, 2016. We had about 25 people come for this ticketed event and over $200 was raised for our local food bank. Kesia Nagata delighted the audience with her beautiful voice and some of her original songs. There was such warmth and joy in this evening, making it a deep pleasure to partner with others for an art gala event in my small community of Mayne Island. A night to treasure! A huge thank you to Sherrie and Andrew for brainstorming this idea and the invitation to participate!___Okay, I do get out of the studio every once in a while. Enjoy! ....

There are certain subjects that drag me back to their presence over and over again - like this big old fir tree. It is all blown over and stands well above its neighbours. With our west coast winter winds, this is a good way to get your top knocked off. But somehow it has survived in all its crooked delight. Photography doesn't really do it justice. I know I will have to take my brushes, paints and a canvas to really capture what I am experiencing every time I meet this tree. Soon, someday soon. From yesterday's afternoon walk...

One of the new paintings that will be shown next Sunday...

Early March at Arena Lighthouse California Coast 18 x 24 inch oil on canvas

The dynamic movement of the sea, sky and light at Arena Lighthouse in northern California mesmerizes and inspires.

This is what it looked like in the studio this afternoon. I have been asked to teach an oil painting class for years and finally caved. Six artists joined me in the studio today. We really did have a great time. Two of them had traveled from the nearby city of Victoria and had come over by ferry for the day. Now that takes dedications!

Climbing up into the gardens to the westerly viewpoint in Avignon early on a June morning is magic and mystery. Across the way there is the Villeneuve lez Avignon with the broken Pont D’ Avignon below falling short of the reach across the Rhone River. The scene is not as easy to compose as I had initially thought. I move here and then there and then back to here and finally set up the easel and paint.

The light is changing quickly but there is still time for my eyes to rest on the scene. They do not. Fluttering across the landscape, with the same sweeping loops as the swallows above, I do not hover or allow my gaze to settle. I search for…. something and maybe nothing at all in the vast countryside – where last evening’s gypsy music and the chiming clink of hands moving to mouths along the narrow streets of the old-city still echoes in the sleeper passages of my consciousness.

An artist's life..... One of my jobs today is to get us access to our kitchen table. I am not sure I completely understand the problem, but I am working on it!

Old Stone Weathered by the Sea

Hard, resistant edges
spiral back as far as eighty-eight.
Our first embrace.
We greet, this stone and I.
No need to speak of the years that have passed.
The stone has remained much the same,
not I so much.

Rocks and Sea Dallas Road Victoria BC

I have other photographs from today's walk, even a few with some blue sky, but this is one I favour. It is the tension between the elements that gets me flattened out on the pebble beach hunting for the right angle, the right wave and the right light.... waiting, holding, ready and then... there it is!

"Westerly Winter Winds Victoria BC" 30 x 40 inch walnut oil on canvas

The painting is not really a restful work but I believe it is still hopeful. This snatch of hinted colour in the sky is sometimes all we get during winter storms. Then the sea turns black as the wind wails and we hunch our shoulders and head in doors out of the cold.

This work will be released for a pop up solo show Sunday, February 21, 2016 at The Groove on Mayne Island. More on this ticketed event soon.

Almost done....

"Westerly Winter Winds Victoria BC" 30 x40 inch oil on canvas

I worked late last evening using a new studio lamp I picked up. There is still some minor adjustments to make but this is pretty much it. Not really a restful work but I believe it is still hopeful.

Thanks for following along during the creative process.
