Google Art Project14,939,923Thursday *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

Low warm golden light drifts across the clear late November southwest coast Canadian landscape. Penetrating blues recede behind dancing arbutus trees as we stand soaking in the sun and the stillness.

Jardins del Turó del Putget Barcelona Spain
25 x 35 cm plein air acrylic painting sketch

There is one place where people let their shoulders rest easy and their stride loosens in Barcelona, Spain. It is in the Jardins del Turó del Putget. The people living near the gardens walk with their dogs, family and visit with friends on the benches sprinkled along the climb and at the top of the park. I walked here often.

I did not take my camera with me this particular time. Even though it feels safe in the park, I am unable to keep an adequate eye on its whereabouts while painting and it would interfere if I was to wear it. This time you will have to be content with just the finished painting sketch.

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.

"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.

Part of the set up for today's work as I commit myself to painting the edges on 11 paintings that are being considered for a pop up solo show later in February. The theme is "Sense of Place" which will cover a lot of my most recent work. Maybe some music to work by?

The Pont d’Avignon or Pont Saint-Bénézet once had 22 arches. The bridge was eventually abandon as the arches took too much upkeep due to being damaged when the Rhone river would flood. The four remaining arches are believed to have been built around 1345. The bridge was the inspiration for the song Sur le pont d’Avignon.

The subject for this work began with a plein air sketch while I was standing on the riverbank on an early morning in June of 2014 in Avignon France which I shared with you yesterday. Happy Friday!

Today's work set aside to dry ....

Beginning with underpainting of Westerly Winds Victoria BC 30 x 40 inch oil on canvas

Sometimes I am asked why do use this tool of a flowing, rather shapeless underpainting? Wouldn't a ground colour do? Why not just begin the painting and start with a pencil or charcoal sketch to mark the forms?

The answers to these questions are interrelated and to some extent personal and subjective to my intent. So lets start with my intent with this painting - I want my viewer to be standing along this specific shore on this specific day and be able to feel their presence within the landscape. Admittedly not a small task considering that 80% of the North American population lives in urban centres and has limited ability and time to spend watching how a specific landscape looks at different times of day and at different times in the year.... more »

Today's work set aside to dry ....

Beginning with underpainting of Westerly Winds Victoria BC 30 x 40 inch oil on canvas

Sometimes I am asked why do use this tool of a flowing, rather shapeless underpainting? Wouldn't a ground colour do? Why not just begin the painting and start with a pencil or charcoal sketch to mark the forms?

The answers to these questions are interrelated and to some extent personal and subjective to my intent. So lets start with my intent with this painting - I want my viewer to be standing along this specific shore on this specific day and be able to feel their presence within the landscape. Admittedly not a small task considering that 80% of the North American population lives in urban centres and has limited ability and time to spend watching how a specific landscape looks at different times of day and at different times in the year. Still, I believe part of my job is to provide this experience which then becomes more familiar to the viewer in the face of the actual physical environment. I make no assumption at all that the viewer is familiar with what it is I am about to paint. If we keep this in mind, it helps to understand the task I must complete with a rather simplistic landscape in order to convey the power of the universe through the sun, sea, and land.

First, in this case I began with a quick 20 minute plein air sketch yesterday. I wanted and needed that time on the shore to gather as many sensory notes as possible so that I can retrieve for this work. So let's unpack this underpainting process.

To proceed with a loose flowing "sketch" if you will in the underpainting is preferred in this case because the simplicity of the landscape makes it all the more difficult to render the movement and tension between the elements in the scene. This style of underpainting is preferred to a ground in this situation because the process provides a first check on the "rightness" of the composition for the intended purpose. The reds, yellows and oranges are simply a tool to bring the most movement and brilliance to the greys, blues, browns, yellows and whites of the finished landscape. Through trial and error I have found these pigments for underpaintings the most effective for capturing the significant range of lively blues in our west coast landscape. Therefore, the underpainting adds a strength to the end result that is near to impossible to replicate by beginning with the specific colours of the finished painting.

Do I always do an underpainting? No. Its use depends on my subject and my intention for the finished work. I sometimes do a quick painting sketch and work with the white canvas. I sometimes use a ground colour only. I sometimes work with wet grounds too. But this kind of underpainting used for this work is a favourite and there are reasons for this that go beyond any visual result and more to an intuitive remembering.

When I work a canvas up with this kind of underpainting I begin to physically learn the window of space and the painting language that will be translated onto the canvas from my sensory information which I have gathered up to this point. My physical reference material will often include both photography and painting sketches.The sensory information is much more than what I see. It includes what I heard, smelled, tasted, and felt. There was the rolling of the stones on the shore beside me and the steps of people walking past. I could feel wind pushing cold air into my back and brushing my hair across my face. I could smell the cold dampness of snow, rain and salt. My eyelashes were cool. My hands were stiff with cold. But there was a warmth in the gray, the blue-green and the a brightness in the sky that was punctuated by the sturdy cliffs and the jut of land. It is all of this that I must translate into brushstrokes. The movement of the brushstrokes for the underpainting are like rough notes for the beginning of this painting conversation. I am intimately aware of the forcefulness between the elements of this seascape. I want this on the canvas from the very beginning.

I hope this helps to explain why I sometimes find this particular process of underpainting necessary to the rendering of my final work. Thanks for joining me and all the best of today. ___

Nothing like an early morning done by Rhone River in Avignon, France in June - with brushes and paints...

June morning by Pont D' Avignon 25 x 35 cm acrylic plein air painting sketch. This later became part of the reference material for a larger studio work that is now in a private collection. But it is this quick sketch that most reminds me of that day.

Calling it done! Still only an iPhone photo but you will get the idea. Against my usual tendencies, there is an exactness of form that leans more towards visual stillness in some ways in this painting. I suppose it was that kind of an afternoon and the essence of this persisted in the work from beginning to end.

Thank you for following along with the creative process.

We have rented the home studio of a fellow artist in the James Bay Area of Victoria for the whole month of Janaury. I will be working in this space for this time.

Remembering the beginning of the day at the beginning of the year...

Today we begin our month of January visit to Victoria. I will be much closer to the ocean than here on the island but will need to share my walks with many others along Dallas Road and in Beacon Hill Park. We also plan on doing a lot more evening walks as there are street lights unlike on our small island.

So for now I am off to load three large paintings that have been requested by the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. More on that next weekend. All the best of Sunday to you!

Ancient Lapidary Blocks Stacked in Our Lady of Lamourguier of Narbonne, France.

I like to reminisce about Narbonne, France from our visit in the spring of 2014 and its 2,500 years of history. Oh, not the medieval town itself so much but the rows of ruins stacked high in Our Lady of Lamourguier. Since 1868, the 11th century church has been used as a warehouse to hold various carved elements removed from Narbonne’s walls during demolition and it contains approximately 2000 ancient Roman lapidary blocks. Since cameras were allowed during my visit I can take us inside. Shall we go have a look?

The church completes her warehouse status with grit settled thickly on the grainy foundation and only an outer shell of her religious history remaining.

Since cameras were allowed during my visit I can take us inside. Shall we go have a look?

The church completes her warehouse status with grit settled thickly on the grainy foundation and only an outer shell of her religious history remaining.

I am mesmerized by the pure abundance of carved blocks. They are all numbered but not necessarily stack in order. Possibly, they have even been moved for aesthetic pleasure. Or maybe it is just my artist and photographer’s eye that is doing the organizing?

Sometimes my attention settles on individual blocks. Other times, it is an oddity that catches my attention. What are these over-sized clay pots doing in here among the blocks? They seem out-of-place somehow.

Then there are the angels with their perfect child-like portioned bodies. If we watch closely they seem to move around and around the remains of this column, neither hurried nor stilled by time.

A guide book for a tour of the city states that the Romans arrived to Narbonne in 118 BC. The place that called Narbo Martius has been known as Rome’s first daughter ever since.

Walking the rows I begin to ponder.

What from this century might survive for the same period of time into the future? What structure might it be housed in?

Who will visit and will they know who we are?

Will they wonder what we ate? Or what it was that woke us on a Sunday morning? Or who it was that we loved? Did we live to be old, die in childbirth or in a protest against our government or sacking another city? Will a sword that tore through your heart remain all those years later with your DNA still on its blade?

If you could whisper one thing in the ear of a visitor hundreds of years from now as they walked pass an artifact that you had made or that you had used – what would you say to them?

Many more photographs that are part of this missive can be viewed on my Creative Potager blog at:

The Red Chair on Mayne Island

Sometimes the heaviness of drizzle and damp is so compelling I must given, while grabbing a spot of colour where I can. We are mostly quietly hanging out for the next week. Family visits happened earlier in the year. Now we sink into island time and the short days until the New Year. I have wished all the best of the holidays, individually and together more than once. But, please, allow me say it again - MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I was walking along this particular trail in the Arbutus Trees this morning and thought about this painting.

The trail is never exactly the same twice. With each season, each varied direction of the sun and the time of day, something new comes to our attention as the arbutus trees continue to spiral their way towards the sun.

In the only spot of sun we had that day, The Edge, on the easel, reworked and resting.

My husband asked when I was going to hang the painting back up on the wall. I replied that it would need to dry before we could easily get it up there but why did he ask?

His response was "I am not sure you have noticed but it is getting awfully crowded in here!"

This is our great room which is an open space holding our dining room table and what is normally a living room. We still have room to eat at the table so I thought we were good ;)

My husband asked when I was going to hang the painting back up on the wall. I replied that it would need to dry before we could easily get it up there but why did he ask?

His response was "I am not sure you have noticed but it is getting awfully crowded in here!"

It has only taken me three years to finally finish this painting to my satisfaction. I always liked it but so wished to really make it come alive. Yesterday, I pulled it down off the wall at the curve of the hallway and went to town. What do you think?

The Edge 48 x 24 inch oil on canvas

A sandstone bluff is battered by the wind and sea but also hosts a familiar arbutus tree on its top most tip. The Edge, a rare large, long, lean painting out of my studio, is about strength, beauty and opportunity.

It will still need a final, final photograph yet but it will need to be a bit less heavy grey than it is today to make that happen.

All the best of the Season to you and yours!

I spent way, way too long playing with straw mice and messing with little lights today but it was fun! Best of the Holidays to you and I am basically on a sort of home/studio time vacation from now until the New Year.

Take good care my friends!

From the studio to you and yours!!!

I wish you all the very best of the holiday season! May the New Year bring with it an abundance of kindness, courage, joy and caring.

Jardins del Turó del Putget Barcelona Spain
25 x 35 cm plein air acrylic painting sketch

There is one place where people let their shoulders rest easy and their stride loosens in Barcelona, Spain. It is in the Jardins del Turó del Putget. The people living near the gardens walk with their dogs, family and visit with friends on the benches sprinkled along the climb and at the top of the park. I walked here often.

I did not take my camera with me this particular time. Even though it feels safe in the park, I am unable to keep an adequate eye on its whereabouts while painting and it would interfere if I was to wear it. This time you will have to be content with just the finished painting sketch.

We are having a series of winter storms with high wind warnings and grey days. Here is one of these kind of days captured on canvas a view of years ago.

Storm Coming Through 24 x 36 oil on canvas (available)

Winds howl as the rain slaps driving mist across the landscape. It takes fortitude, girt and a bit of foolishness to be out on a day like this. With shoulders hunched I yell against the beastly day with no effect. The sounds are carried away, across the water, through the trees – gone, like the day that will end in nothing more than a short, perpetual early dawn. Such is a winter storm on the southwest coast of Canada.

Wild Seas with Mount Baker in the Distance

Almost exactly two years ago and I remember the day well. The wind was howling in from off shore and it was freezing even with my winter down coat on which I never really get to where here on the southwest coast of Canada. Oh but the thrill of the moment! It is the kind of weather that has a person hooping and hollering for no other reason than the fun of it!

There is a painting inspired from this day but I shall share that in a separate post soon.

Park Güell in Barcelona Spain

One of our most pressing reasons for coming to Barcelona in the spring of 2014 was to see Antoni Gaudi’s work in person. What we didn’t realize was how mainstream and popular his work had become with visitors. After we assessed the potential for crowds, lineups and disappointment we took a circular approach. This involved a few scouting trips before actually making a commitment to a more engaging visit to Park Güell.

At this time, I have no paintings from my visits in the park because Gaudi's work is so complete in itself. The photographs seem to be enough. Enjoy!

Outdoor studio yesterday..


Winter afternoon Navy Channel 11 x 14 inch acrylic plein air sketch on gessoed panel

The low golden light of a winter afternoon and arbutus trees hanging out over the water are irresistible to me. I did do a wee bit of finishing up this morning but likely only I would notice. Enjoy!

By way of an introduction to my art studio, I thought we could start here.....

I suppose I need to make a bit of room in the studio both physically and mentally. One of the challenges of a small studio is that artists have a hard time getting away from the work they have already done. Sometimes, if I am feeling hemmed in by earlier paintings, I will turn all of their faces to the wall. Other times, they are good company and reminders that much can be gained by taking risks, new approaches and trying new ideas. But often I find it helpful to go plein air painting and leave the studio all together. This is what I will be doing today, with a fellow artist even. But I thought you might like to snoop, I mean poke around, while I am gone. Catch up with you all later.

Plein air painting in our small private courtyard in Barcelona Spain

Community and park spaces are extremely limited. Our neighbourhood playgrounds are on spears of land beside major thoroughfares. Our ground-floor apartment has a most prized private courtyard in the middle of tall apartment buildings. Its value did not register with me when we arrived but now I more fully appreciate its rare pleasure. One morning I set up my paints.

I want to capture courtyards private beauty and mystery. To do so means painting the spaces between the actual forms using light and colour to guide the construction of a meaningful composition. The results are an abstraction of sorts but the energy of the space after the morning rain remains.

Eastside Heritage View of Vancouver skyline on a mid November Sunday morning.

It is a million dollar view in an old bunkhouse or boarding-house style apartment. This was my first look at the day and some of the only remaining sun that was left over from the day before. Viewing was easy but taking the photograph was a little more difficult. For a clear shot, I had to climb up on the back edge of the cast iron tub in the bathroom in my bare feet and then stretch out open window. Thought we should have it for the record though.

At some point this old apartment building will be torn down and high-end units will replace it. But for now, this view is like a city secret. A ragged building garden takes a swath beside the entrances steps where tenants gather to smoke, read and visit, only moving over when someone comes out to take their big dog for a walk which some ruffle and pet as they... more »

A ragged building garden takes a swath beside the entrances steps where tenants gather to smoke, read and visit, only moving over when someone comes out to take their big dog for a walk which some ruffle and pet as they greet the animal by name. I love staying here with its plywood covering the bottom half of the entrance door and the squeak of the wood under the frayed carpet as I climb the old staircase. There are small fairies, witches, and gargoyles sitting on door frames and extended light sockets in the hall. As I pass people, they all say hello and smile. There is community here in a tight old school kind of neighbourhood way. I am reminded of Jane Jacobs and her theories and best practices for urban planning. In a city known to be too expensive to live in this is a place to call home and it will leave the tenants ample for groceries and end of the week beers.

Have a great day!

The process of rendering parts of the Northern California coast with oil paints is one of the high points of this past year. EARLY SPRING MUIR BEACH OVERLOOK, an 18 x 24 inch oil on wood, was particularly challenging. If you are curious about how I managed to get from the underpainting and in the roughed painting sketch to the final painting it has been shared in a post on my Creative Potager blog at:

The old and new of Nice, France is hard for me to either untangle or integrate following our three day visit in the spring of 2014. I have neither painting sketch nor studio paintings yet from this time. It may take another longer visit to actually have more than a handful of photographs - a few of which I have shared with you here.

While in Nice, I visited the Museum dedicated to Henri Matisse and browsed through a large collection of his cutouts. I visited the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art where I saw the most brilliant collection of American Pop Art one can imagine in one place. Then it was back into the winding streets of the old city before crossing the modern square and walking up the boulevard to our rented apartment.

Even in remembering this visit, I blasted with sensory confusion that a climb to the lookout over the city did nothing to help me reorient. Visiting Nice was like experiencing huge blocks of fractured time, pleasant and intriguing and unorganized. I want to go back. I have yet to crack the mystery of this fine city of Nice in southern France.

On a frosty Vancouver morning looking out over the city I thought of this painting for some reason....

West Coast Blues Rolling Waves Oyster Bay – 36 x 72 inch oil on canvas (available)

The heavy ink blue of the dark sea rolls grand waves against the sandstone rocks as breaking clouds answer to the west coast blues. This is a large contemporary landscape painting which brings a view of the sea to any room that it is in. The scale of this painting is difficult to appreciate in this image – it is a full 3 feet high and six feet long.

Fresh Snow on Mount Baker yesterday...

It feels like an early start to the holiday season as I look out onto our west coast blues with a brisk wind calling for a warmer jacket. I am off this morning to go make shortbread and other things with the eldest grandson. Maybe we will have time to let you in on our adventures and maybe not. We shall see. Have a great weekend!

First sun in  the morning at Neskowin Oregon is a good place for plein air painting and taking a walk into a new day. This is a place I remember fondly from last February and hope to return in the future. Possibly, over the winter, a larger painting will come from this sketch yet.

I woke to a lovely sunrise even though now we have high cloud. It seems the storms have passed for the moment. I am working on a fascinating project at the moment. Sometimes it feels like waking up a sleeping giant whose temperament is unpredictable. So here I am with a small stick going tap-tap-tap and then in another spot tap-tap-tap, each time pausing and calling out "Are you awake yet?" In this vain of imagining I give to you the following image from recent trip to the Okanagan.
