Another Plane Tree

Platane II
acrylic on canvas  - 30" x 36"
This is for sale - contact me for price if interested.
After I finished the first Platane tree painting (see below) last winter, I wanted to do another.  I started this one and it languished.......until recently. I just love these trees and the opportunity they present for colourful play.

The Not-So-Plane Tree

Thursday, 21 November 2013


It has been a busy fall, not so much with painting, but with teaching and traveling. In the latter part of September I spent twelve days traveling in British Columbia and Alberta. The scenery from Victoria to the Pacific Ocean to the interior of BC and through the Canadian Rockies and the national parks of Jasper and Banff, was truly spectacular. I now have delightful memories and over 1400 photos to remind me of what I saw, and to inspire new paintings.  Here is some of what I saw.....if you have not been west, go!
