Ghosts of Christmas Past

Gallery 78 in Fredericton New Brunswick has an annual show for the season called Christmas Choice. The paintings above are my contribution to the show for this year. For many, Christmas is a treasure trove of memories, and these images remind me of some special ones. I hope the Ghosts of Christmas’s Past are kind to you this season, if they’re not please be kind to yourself.

Fall is just around the corner and it’s a great time for preserves. On Prince Edward Island a great place to pick up a tasty bit of the summer’s harvest is The Prince Edward Island Preserve Company. Today’s watercolour is a painting of one of their delicious creations.

Today’s post is the finished version of “Tapestry”. The two panels are joined together to form the final image. The ornate decorations and the machined functionality continue to call. I am looking forward to revisiting this combo in future pieces.

Today’s post is the finished version of “Phoebe’s Singer”. I’ve always loved the combination of the mechanical and the ornate that flows through the design of these sewing machines. This one held a place of honor in our family’s farmhouse kitchen. It was used to create or mend, and the rocking of its pedal provided much amusement for many a youngster (me included).
