Today’s painting was completed way back in 2005. I’ve continued to work on these preserve paintings, and Maple Leafs still manage to find their way into the jars.
It’s no longer a work-in-progress. “Canadian Mason” joins my batch of preserves, and the tradition of leaf in a jar paintings (a somewhat minor tradition, but one of my own).
The anticipation, mystery, and joy of the wrapped present.
Last night we decorated our Christmas tree. Each little treasure of glass and metal that we took out of its box to place on the tree was a piece of family history. They, like the ghost of Christmas past, bring back our children’s childhoods and our own. Today’s watercolour includes one such decoration.
Today is the beginning of a new week, and the start of a new painting.
As all Canadians know “Winter is Coming”.
November is here and the temperature is dropping, it’s only a matter of time before the landscape is covered with snow. In today’s painting we have a “Snow Show”. It’s an arrangement of ice-covered landscapes and the conversation such displays encourage.
