New sketches happening . I’m interested to see what happens when they get bigger . It’s been awhile since I was interested in painting panoramic type paintings but I think that might be changing . #change #sketch #study #bridge #spring ...

This 54x54” -arcs of light- was available through the #agoartrental it’s been placed apparently 🙂 . ......................That little piece I’m offering to someone who donates towards a charity of their choice has one more day for entries. I’m quite pleased with the response . I’ve had over 10 entries , yay. It’s a beautiful , sunny spring day. Hankering to get down to my allotment garden, alas not today. Happy spring!! #painting #oilpainting #abstractlandscape #contemporarylandscape #spring ...

I went to my studio yesterday to pick up some me things so I could work from home. The area around my studio is a ghost town except for the homeless and struggling people who’ve been forgotten in this crisis . Certainly it is not easy being an artist but I manage to keep myself housed and fed . Let’s do what we can to help the vulnerable and struggling people out there . Please share this post and please help . #community #helpeachother #wetogether

At the studio in artist isolation mode . The place smells of bleach . Trying to muster the courage to pick up the tools again after a prolonged break due to my broken wrist. It won’t be for long . Amazing how much muscles atrophy in such a short time . #studio #art #oilpainting #contemporarypainting #contemporarylandscape ...

This 12x24” piece is from my unplugged series. They were drawn from my canoe and kayaking trips this past summer. Quick sketches on and off the water , taken back to the studio and voila, they became something else. That’s the thing about art, I hope it evokes a sense of wonder for the artist and hopefully they’ll be some conversation engaged between the piece and the viewer that takes beyond wherever the artist went.... my cast came off today and for the first time in almost 6 weeks I can hold a brush however briefly . #unfiltered #artoftheday #abstractlandscape #unplugged #contemporarylandscape ...

Happy Saint Patrick’s day. Searching for calm in an age of uncertainty I give you this piece which evokes a sense of forest bathing. From my series ‘forest interiors revisited- canopy’ 40x60” @diannawittegallery . I hope it transports you to a happier less complicated time for an instant. #abstractlandscape #contemporarypainting #artbreak #forestbathing #treepainting ...

I’ve been busily writing up proposals at my studio where I was able to take a photo without any staging. Amazing how tidy I can be for moments on end ... not many moments mind you . Anyway, it’s come to my attention that I have only one roll of toilet paper at home so walked to a store and , bedlam! Eek !
I hope we remember to take care of people who are struggling at the best of times . I am fortunately able to take a couple of rolls of toilet paper home from my studio, I count myself lucky ! #studio #artstudio #contemporarypainting #womenartists #fineart

Here’s a piece from a few years ago I just hung up at my new studio. It’s from ‘where the lines are drawn” a series of paintings based on my urban allotment garden near the Leslie spit and my friend Alan’s which is near old fort York in Toronto. Both neighborhoods have changed hugely in the past few years. I do find them a source of peace and replenishment in chaotic times. This piece is 36x36 . My studio is open for visits . Come! Washing hands firmly encouraged 🙂 ...

Stacked studies of bridges at the studio. I’m chomping at the bit to get back at it . A bit more than a week til the cast comes off. My left handed writing has improved immensely, my left handed painting, not so much . #artiststudio #artistsoninstagram #painting #contemporarypainting ...
