Latest mountain baby is done her touch ups 🌄
Snowy peaks is approximately 18X24 inches on stretched canvas, the background is acrylic and the mountains/ trees are oil. I really adore this piece and prints will be available. Due to the oil paint it will take over a week for it to cure properly.
Message me with any interest
Thanks for looking 👽✨🌲 #ArtistsOfInstagram#OilPainting#MountainPainting#KootenayArtist#KootenayLife
An old painting, completed in London a few years ago. The original painting doesn’t exists anymore so now I only have a photo of it, and I re-used the canvas. (In fact the painting ‘Shoreditch’ has this image underneath it’s surface:-))
The reason I got rid of it is because I felt it didn’t do enough justice to the place, a town called San Pedro, at Lago d’atitlan in Guatemala. I spent some time there when I was backpacking in Central America, and the mountain is called ’nariz del Indio’ because of it’s shape. I’ve never been back, but this place will always be special! (And only those who know me well know why :-)) #paletteknifepainting#impastopainting#acrylicsoncanvas
We decided to take the weekend off from shows and ellebruxin’, as I like to call it, since our busy holiday schedule is coming up so soon. 😌✨
Instead of working we watched our friends get married, rode a few roller coasters at Kings Island, ate the biggest caramel apples we’ve ever seen, played countless games of Mario Party, and spent time caring for our plants and pets.
Sometimes it’s good to take a little break to recenter before getting back to work. Today was a sick day (am I allergic to peaceful weekends?) but tomorrow I’m back into production mode. I hope your weekends were just as lovely, and your Monday isn’t too bad, either!

The photo of what we will be painting is posted here called "Mountain Bloom".
No previous painting experience needed!
Today we have been skiing in the mountains and it has been IMMENSE! I paint mountains, I ski in them... just bloody love them! ⛷ 🏔 ❄️
Newest oil painting; 20” x 40” if I remember correctly... biggest piece I’ve done width-wise. Slightly daunting but such a fun challenge!
Mountain Harvest, 20x24 // Hmm... done or not done? I’ve opted to not add stitching on it, but am thinking of painting some detailed and textured wheat in the foreground. What do you think - as is or more detail and texture? 🌾
Another world gently, yet powerfully breaking into ours
Honestly, I felt a little vulnerable sharing every step of the process, because halfway through it was not done, not beautiful yet... And what if it wouldn't work out at all?
I decided to continue without letting pressure of performance dictate.
So, there it is 💁🏻♀️
Performance does not define you, it reveals where you are and you can choose how to go from there.
I wanted to try something new: more dramatic clouds! Still want to learn how to paint those better, but overall I'm happy about how this painting turned out.
Lemme hear your thoughts!
