"The Sliding Hill" Limited Edition
I am very grateful that the City of Fredericton chose my image, "The Sliding Hill", for their holiday greeting Last Christmas. Many residents told me of the times that their families had spent on the Neill Farm and expressed their desire to have a copy of this painting. As a result, I have produced a limited edition of signed and numbered archival reproductions and offer these either framed or matted.
The image size is 8" x 10" and the frame dimension is 14" x 17". As these are collectible and there will only be 25 available, they are expected to sell out quickly. A significant portion of each sale will be given to the Fredericton SPCA.
"University Avenue", 11" x 14", is a painting I did recently as we settled into fall with kids returning to university and the leaves changing colour. I was taken with the colourful building shapes and the "tunnel-like" contrast. This was largely done on location and completed in my studio.
During a little mini-vacation to Maine, Helen Jean and I made a detour to Reid State Park on the Maine coast as I've wanted to explore there for several years but hadn't made it until now. It was well worth the visit as I got lots of reference photos and bagged this one while there. "Coastal Reverie", 11" x 14", is the result, painted mostly en plein air and completed in studio.
This is a tiny painting I did in my studio on a recent Sunday afternoon. Only 8" x 6" in size, this image feels like a much larger painting to me.
In fact, I think I might paint a larger version of it as I am very happy with the way "November Light" turned out. Particularly appealing to me are the bold colours as well as the composition or design.
Since the sun is lower at this time of year, November has some of my very favorite light as it can be very intense.
Coming Up Soon
Once again, I will be participating in the Fredericton Society of Artists' Annual Fall Exhibition to run from Thursday, December 7th through Sunday, December 10th. As is past years, this show will be held at the Provincial Archives building on the UNB campus. Please note the shorter duration. In recent years, our shows have run for ten days or so but we are getting back to a long weekend showing as we had done previously.
I will have four pieces for sale this year: "University Avenue", "Coastal Reverie", "The Swing" and "The Beaver Fountain".
The opening reception for the Annual Fall Exhibition will be held on Dec. 7th from 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM and the public is invited to come and see more than one hundred paintings on display and enjoy light refreshments and chat with the artists. I know that I enjoy meeting people and explaining my work or answering question so please stop and say hello!
New For The Holiday Season!
I have boxed sets of note cards featuring some of my favourite oil paintings. Perfect for Christmas gifts. Limited quantities available. Please contact me as soon as possible if interested to avoid disappointment.
These are beautifully packaged in a black box with a clear, plastic cover and secured with a gold elastic bow. Each box contains ten cards, each displaying a different image of some of my favourite paintings as shown below. These note cards are 4.25" x 5.5" with a glossy image on the front face and a blank, white, matt-finished interior for writing thank-you notes, all-occasion wishes or for just saying hello. Boxed set of ten notes with envelopes, $35.00, tax included. Shipping extra if required.
Consider these for stocking stuffers or for passing out to your staff at Christmas. I use these notes all the time and find them to be the perfect size for any occasion. Please contact me for special orders such as ten cards with envelopes of all the same image or for bulk orders.
"The Crashing Sea", 24" x 36", is a studio painting I did recently from photo references taken during a visit to Reid State Park in Maine. I loved the way waves slammed into the rocks and the foamy water swirled.
The rocks and surf were painted almost entirely with a palette knife. I enjoy painting this way because I seem to feel the movement in this scene more clearly. The paint application is also thicker than I would normally do with a brush.
I was happy with the result and anxious to get it in a frame to see how it looked on the wall. I think it works well!
