The top painting is the finished piece entitled "Last Light" completed in studio (12 x 24 inches). The painting below it is the plein air study (6 x 12 inches) that I based the larger painting on. "Last Light" was auctioned off in support of Halton Heroes, a charity that helps the families of injured Police officers in the Halton Region.

This is the study I did for a live painting I completed at the Art in Action Silent Auction a couple of weeks ago. This is the third time I have painted live at the event; lots of fun but I always do a practice run to work out the mixing of the colours and ensure I can finish the painting in 2 hours with time to enjoy the event too. The live painting I completed was very similiar to this one - just a little more polished.

This is a commission piece for my Dentist's office. It is 4 feet by 6 feet and in person the colour and texture are really striking. The children in the foreground are my Dentist's. It fits looks great in the office and the nice thing is I get to go and visit it regularly.

I am reposting a painting I did at the end of last year titled 'The Gift'. For the past few months I have been so busy that I have not entered a single post and rather than beat myself up for this I am going to look at it as a Gift. Other areas of my life have been so full and busy that my posting had to take second seat for a little bit while I concentrated on a new job and some fun painting commissions. More posting to come as I get back into the swing of painting for me!
