"The Family"


We know a little girl who is fighting a serious illness but is surrounded by her family and friends enveloped in their love. 
Their faith is seeing them through as they rest in God for strength. 
When families stand together, no matter what, miracles are apt to happen, 
like cows jumping over the moon.

"Prudence Dear"



Did this a while ago. She's in a gallery in Calgary. 
Trying now to get something going and paint again. The slumps are no fun. 
Yikes! 
I know the best way to deal with it is to just paint. 
My favourite approach is to get out the sketch book and just start drawing. 
It's from the sketch books that the ideas begin to flow. 
The next step is to commit to one or more of these sketches. 
Put them down on canvas or paper. Then paint. 
So far i have about a half dozen drawn and ready to go. 
Just have to grab those brushes! Right?

"Cowperate Ladder"



Some good folks wanted a painting based on the photo shown. 
They said they went out to check on the herd one day and this is what they found. 
Pretty funny to think the cow was wandering around with a ladder stuck on it's head.
