About This Piece
Beautiful, realist oil painting celbrating the extreme color of the red sands, green trees and blue sky of Prince Edward Island, Canada. As the tides pull out near Charlottetown, P.E.I., a red sand beach & tidal pools sre reavealed to explore. Along the shore's edge these welcoming ladder staircases offer a welcoming back to the cottage for the explorer who gets lost in the beauty of nature in this Atlantic province.
No matter the subject matter, I strive to reveal the spirit and story within. My appreciation for solitude, that is not lonely, is often a theme to my work. A positive thinking artist, my work often reflects this in its beautiful colour, the viewpoint of looking up, and sometimes a touch of humor. The impact of scale on a work intrigues me. My cat painting portraits, for example, are 4 - 6 feet tall. My portraits of people are often large scale, or just the opposite - 6" x 6" small - the little faces, usually of children, equally full of character. I love the act of oil painting, the blending, glow and beautiful colours of the oil paints.
