In the Studio;

It’s been a slow year in the art studio. If only the heating there worked better in the winter! But this past year and for the foreseeable future I’ll be working on representational images of Alberta wildlife and livestock.

My coyote painting below was created with acrylic paint on canvas. I’m getting close to finishing my large painting of bison and have more canvasses ready to start.

I’m also looking forward to getting back to working with water based media on paper. More new art to come soon. Now that warmer days are ahead, I’ll be in the studio again!


My novel ‘Secrets, Lies and Rodeo’ is available in paperback on Amazon. I have been out and about promoting my book and am available to do readings and/or talks about writing and self-publishing at Central Alberta libraries or for book and writers groups.
