Sunday Morning Surprise

Sunday morning I was pleasantly surprised when I opened an email and read this...........

"I just got Jumper back from the framer and wanted to share with you what it looks like. I'm absolutely thrilled with it, and have it in my kitchen so I can see it all the time. Your work is absolutely stunning - most unusual and very striking. The perfect thing for my walls! The framer "floated" the piece with the deckle edge showing, and also floated the frame for depth. It looks spectacular!
Thank you so much,

This really was one of those "Icing on the Cake" moments. Thanks Kim for making my day! 

I had such a fabulous time on my trip to Montana. Kalispell couldn't be a nicer place and the people were warm and engaging . I can hardly wait to go back up next year to the Event at    Rebecca Farm.

"Blue Note; Surfacing"

"Blue Note; Surfacing"
One day when I was watching the horses graze under the trees, I was intrigued by the play of light and shadow across their backs. The patterns kept shifting with the breeze and the horses languid walk as the looked for the sweetest grass.
The next time I went out to the farm, there they were in their favorite place. The light weaving a wonderful tapestry across them. Tomorrow I would bring a camera.
A few days later a friend of mine looked at the photos. “What are these about?” she asked. I am notorious for taking bad pictures, she thought these were no exception. I explained the light to her, she wasn’t impressed.
Over the next few weeks I used the photos as a rough road map. The murky, slightly out of focus pictures encouraged me to lose and find lines. To allow shapes to emerge and disappear. Layering veils of colour upon colour. To focus on small areas and not lose sight of the “Big Picture”.
That fall she came into the studio and saw the painting. She looked at me and smiled. “I get it now.”

I am proud to announce that this painting is on it's way to the
 Churchill Gallery
No. 6 Inn Street
