This past Fall my husband and I went on a two month trip to Hong Kong, Australia and Bali, to celebrate his retirement. It was the most amazingly fabulous trip with every single day rated 10 out of 10. Bali was our final destination, and it was very special for a number of reasons. The most important though, is that I was celebrating my 60th birthday ( I can't believe I typed that!), and both of my kids (now young adults) arrived in Ubud, Bali to surprise me for my birthday! The whole family spent two weeks together island hopping and bombing around on scooters. What a treasure of memories I have! This Bali painting is called 'Path Between the Rice Paddies'. This was a truly magical day in Ubud. After lunch at Sari Organics, an outdoor restaurant in the middle of the rice paddies and organic vegetable garden, we wandered this path for a few hours. It was so beautiful and exotic, and full of friendly smiling people whose conversations with us made the experience extra special.
Hi there. I'm a Still Life and Landscape Artist living in Victoria BC, Canada, situated on Vancouver Island. A Design graduate, I also studied Fine Arts in France and Victoria. I'm an award winning artist, and an Active Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.
I love painting, and the aim of this Blog is to document my journey as an painter. With each new painting I learn a lesson to hopefully add to my painting knowledge. The more I learn the more I realize that the learning is endless, which makes painting such a wonderful lifelong love. By painting small works frequently, I anticipate refining my painting style and skills to keep the learning fire burning, and I find that a really exciting prospect. Please feel free to comment and I hope you enjoy my posts.
