This weekend I'll be at the @artswhistler market in #whistler with my art! I'm down a few originals, but I still have this one and a group of others left, and I will be replenishing my framed prints and greeting cards. Come visit :)

Here's a little clip of what my space looked like after set up and before the #eastsideculturecrawl started, if you didn't make it out! 😊

The #eastsideculturecrawl has started and I will be at #octopusstudios today at 5pm-10pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 11am-6pm. I have so much stuff: cards, prints, framed prints ($40-$120), and originals (tiny to big). This painting, "A Waving Dance Study," is 10"x20", acrylic on canvas and it was inspired by a photo I took on a crisp autumn hike near #lakelouise and Canmore. Come visit! 😊

Blending from dark blue to yellow used to be such a mystery! How do I avoid the faint green layer in the middle?? I wondered. Here's another glimpse into my colour nerd side...I've since learned that as I am creating the different gradients of colour, I don't only need to add white, but just before I need to bring in yellow I add a bit of red. The tiny bit of red and light blue create a blue/grey colour that does not turn green when you add a bit of yellow. Then in the following gradient I add a little more red to cancel out even more blue so that I can add even more yellow...The strategy of cancelling out the blue with red to add yellow eliminates the danger of creating green! Magic!

I often don't let out my "paint nerd" side but here's a glimpse...I work with the colour blue the MOST. All kinds of blue...The biggest question I ask myself before starting to mix the colours in the sky is: do I start with a warm blue (pthalo blue red shade) or a cool blue (pthalo blue green shade)? Each blue reacts immensely differently depending on what I mix it with and if I use the wrong blue the rest of the painting will be off kilter... and I've either been picking up on an interesting pattern or I'm imagining things...But recently, I've worked on a couple of early morning paintings and I've found that I'm often working with a cool blue and cool violet. For dusk blue skies I'm usually working with a warm blue and warm red. The coldest part of the day is just before dawn, and I find it interesting that the temperature of the environment and time is captured in the "temperature" of the cool morning blues and vice versa with the warmer blues of sunsets. This pondering may seem so subtle and specific to people who don't spend hours of their lives mixing colour, but paying attention to these tiny details can save me a lot of time, and it also convinces me that I'm so deeply obsessed with what I do that I must be on the right path in life! In the photo, I've lined up dawn scenes on top with dusk scenes on the bottom.

This is the last painting I'll be working on before the #eastsideculturecrawl and will I finish it in time?? I love to hate deadlines, they can be so overwhelmingly, stressfully productive. I don't think I could live without them...kind of like my alarm clock in the morning. But some people don't use an alarm clock, they just wake up on their own, which makes me wonder if some people are naturally and consistently productive. Most of my productivity is born in an anxious frenzied state, but is it possible to be productive and relaxed? I have a feeling the answer may have something to do with the concepts of "routine" and "discipline"...am I right?

Getting started! It's amazing how much time spent being an "artist" means doing so many things that aren't painting....creating/updating websites, writing bios/stories/show applications/articles, researching and purchasing materials on sale....marketing and creating this Instagram post...endless non painting tasks...which means I get overly excited when I can sit down and JUST paint 😊😊#painthappy #letspaintalready

We had a great time raking up maple leaves for mulching our school gardens this week.
Benefits of mulching over winter: 🍁 Slows nutrient runoff from heavy rainfall 🍁 Insulates soil to help perennials overwinter 🍁 Feeds the soil and worms organic matter as the leaves break down 🍁 Suppresses weeds Maple leaves are great for this purpose. They can be shredded to speed up decomposition. Avoid leaves like oak and magnolia that can inhibit plant growth or that take too long to break down.
