Another year at the easel has produced several additions to my on-going Prairie "Family Series". (with intermittent still   life/landscape/portrait works). Oil paint continues to be my   medium of choice. Inspiration comes from a chocolate box of old photo negatives and my studio mates; Dyane Brown and Patricia Robison.  The Garden Studio - 87 Nicol Street(below Arbutus Books) 250 753 1036. Ample free parking. See you there:)
