Have you ever?

There are so many things that I would like to capture on canvas-so many things I would like to try.

Have you ever wanted to paint a full wall? Take a blank slate and just cover it in colour? A huge canvas and just set yourself free and smoosh, and splatter? What about taking the canvas and becoming the implement that paints, use your hands, your feet, your whole body to immerse yourself in the process so that you and the canvas become one.

Have you ever wanted to paint the smell of spring rain? The sound of the loons on the lake as it stills and reflects during the magic hour? The smell of the wood smoke from the sauna-the anticipation of relaxation before the plunge into the chill water that refreshed and rejuvenated the soul? The hush in the forest in winter when giant snowflakes drifting delicately to the ground is the only sound you will hear? The sound of a child’s laughter-the full belly kind that is pure unabashed joy? The feeling you get when you play with little baby toes and fingers? That kiss at the moment where things click and you melt? The warmth of a hug where all you need is the strength of the arms around you? The taste of tears? That deep satisfying moment where you are sitting with someone and not saying a word, and everything is good in the world?

Oh the things left to try.

New Year Sale!

Once again, with the new year, comes new things. However, in order to make room for new things, new styles, new fun, i need to downsize some of the pieces currently taking up residence in my limited studio space.

All works not currently associated with a gallery are on sale up to 40% off. If there is a piece that you have been eyeing up, send me a message with the title, and I will send you details regarding prices. Please note that prices do not include shipping. Pieces can be shipped on the stretcher bars, or I have successfully shipped different pieces around the world by taking them off the stretcher frame, rolling and sending. That would mean, however, that you would have to get them re-stretched, or framed accordingly. Please also check for import fees depending on your country.

Ahhh technology…

So says the artist as she tries to figure out a better, more user friendly way to put the art out there. After some suggestions from viewers, I’ve tried to make this just a tad easier for someone to try and find specific pieces, themes, etc. The “galleries” have been revamped a bit. I tried as much as possible to group them by series, or failing that, style. Let me know if this works better!

On another note, I am still taking a few more commissions. After the Art in the Yard show, I have had requests for variations of what I am dubbing my “Canadiana” series-the landscapes, endangered species and all the rest. I still have room for a few more, however keep in mind, that all of these are completed using oil paint. Oil paint naturally takes some time to dry, so while you might want your piece tomorrow, it’s gonna take a wee bit longer before I can let you take it home and put it on your wall.
Cheers,
Ann
