Spring was always a time for marbles, and a solid mason jar provided a good place to keep your collection.
Preserved Fiona Tree
Last fall our island was hit with the remnants of Hurricane Fiona. It caused much damage to shorelines, cottages, and houses, but mostly it took down trees (which in turn damaged many other things). Today’s painting preserves one of the trees that was damaged, but managed to hold on to see another season.
Spring is making its appearance in my little corner of the world. The days are lengthening and life is once again emerging from the soil. I know sunflowers are not exactly a spring flower, but their optimistic nature seems to fit the season. Hope everyone is having a good day. Cheers!
House and Jar
Today’s painting consists of fragments of time and memory preserved in a mason jar.
Boat and Bottle
Today’s painting is one of my mason jars. I’ve always admired the skill and craftsmanship of those who can painstakingly and almost magically create ships in a bottle. This is my attempt.
If Only For A Moment
Our world is a busy place. A thousand bits and pieces scream out for attention. I hope you all can find a place to pause “If Only For A Moment”.
Today’s painting includes a still-life within a still-life. In my painting, I’ve included a postcard of a painting by one of my favourite 18th century painters, Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin.
I’ve started to work on a few of these fragmented images. The world dissolved into confetti shaped bits of sharp edged colour.
Hope everyone’s had a good start to the new year.
As you can tell from Yum apparently my sweet tooth has survived into 2023.
Not Just a Jam Jar
I can’t seem to get enough candy lately. Yum!
