Christmas Skates - Sold


Christmas Skates, 12x24 oil


 
I have a tradition, that I started a few years back, to do a painting for Christmas. It can be such a busy time of year, shopping, parties, and all that fun stuff that comes with the season, as well as getting paintings done for others in time for the special day. I usually try to have it finished by the beginning of December, but I seem to be running a little late this year, but better late than never. So here it is! Happy Holidays!

Persimmon


Persimmon
6x6 oil

Persimmons are pretty little fruits with their bright orange colour. I remember liking them as a child, probably because of their surprisingly mild flavour.

Off Duty - Sold

Off Duty
24x12 oil

I thoroughly enjoyed painting this still life. I knew what I wanted it to look like before I even started.
Luckily at the last minute, I decided to enter this painting into the Burlington Art Centre, Fine Arts Guild annual juried show. Well I not only got accepted, but received and 'honourable mention'. It'll be on display at the Centre until the end of November I believe.
