YEAH!!!! It's Spring

Went for my first bike ride today with my sketchbag and camera in the bike basket. Came home and produced a painting in record time of one of the shots I took today. Way cool...........

Acrylic on stretched gallery canvas 18" x 18" called Applecroft. I think the sub-division that the bike path is in is called Applecroft... hence the title.
Don't you just love it when things happen without too much planning interference.
It's called "A Happening"....... so much for the sixties :)
....... showing my age again... sorry !!!!

The Trilliums are Blooming

This painting is finally finished.... I think ! This was started last spring when the trilliums were blooming.... family health issues abounded and the work was put away.
I resurrected it a few weeks ago along with some others patiently waiting in the wings.
This scene is behind the Ajax General Hospital in a wooded area I think it's called Clements Woods.
The work is on stretched canvas done in acrylic and measures 36" x 36".
I've also just posted it to the front page of my website.
