"Leaves Falling, Jacksons Point, Lake Simcoe"
8"x10" oil on canvas
There comes a point in every artists life when an earthquake occurs. The ground shifts and everything the artist thought was right has just been shaken and disrupted. It comes in various forms and for this artist the shift came in the form of colour. This feeling that I wanted my paintings to embrace more. Envelope more. To reach out and touch you on your shoulder and offer warmth and comfort. Certainly drama is present but more than anything I want to project a happy warmth.
Going forward you will see it in my selection of colours. more earth tones, reddish brown, creams, warm yellows and rust. I want to project those assuring colours of coziness and have you feel secure. At home.
I hope you enjoy as these colours become a part of the new series forthcoming.

The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
