Today for #tbt , confined chaos , one of my urban garden pieces currently @bugeramathesongallery . This painting of my allotment garden seems timely with it’s garlic scapes and poppies and satellite dishes and exuberance. The gardeners I know are getting excited about seed catalogues and starting plants and planning .

Every year I look in envy at the people who map out their gardens. My gardens always need spaces for their self seeded arugula, poppies, nasturtiums and other welcome survivors.

It’s another snowy day outside. (Perfect snowman snow) inside the studio we have a fecund forest. It’s kind of steamy in there ,and the leaves are quivering in a slight breeze. What do you see?

This very wet as yet untitled piece is 24x48”

Jumping around to another format and time of year . This piece , 48x52” currently @diannawittegallery is a late summer piece . I like motion and odd palate of the piece. I also like the variety of marks . More abstract than some , less than others .

This piece @bugeramathesongallery . It’s so nice to see it again, like visiting an old friend. I like the different volumes of paint, the birdhouses, the lines . So many things I’m happy about with this piece .

It’s a particularly nice reminder on a day when we’ve just gotten 3 cm of snow in an hour. The piece is 54x60 inches . I’m being what I think of as typically Canadian. Imperial/metric measurements, looking at warmer images in a snowstorm or as much as a snow storm as we’ve had in awhile .

A piece from a few years ago. I called this series ‘explorations’. They came about because I was thinking of how when you move through spaces , in this case riding my bike , your mind takes pieces of imagery and assembles them into entire pictures. Fragmented, filtered light and images . I had a camera too but as always with my work , reality is just a departure point for the imagination. This piece is 36x48”
