Lemay watercolour 8x10

"Le May"
I pushed this watercolor of a Canadian iconic figure,
 in keeping with her fame and strength as a woman ice skater.
I copied her face from Whoopi Goldberg's show, The view. 
She is much nicer in real life than in this image.

Stay tuned, watch this blog often, it's where I post my new work.

Scrape & save 2 (re-using old canvas boards)

Scrape and save - yes this is a painting that didn't work out
 so I scraped it, turned it on its side
 and painted a new scene "Nanaimo Bridge" using this same
6 x 12-inch board.

Winter cover - moonlight bay oil 50cm x 70cm. Oils on stretched canvas. CLICK TO ENLARGE

Prudent owners cover the innards during winter and hibernate, others (like the boat on the right) keep living aboard no matter the weather! Available.


South Rim - Grand Canyon 16.5 x 30 inches oil on stretched canvas (The best). CLICK TO ENLARGE

Famous US artist Thomas Moran painted the Grand Canyon from this point which is where we also stood, many years later. I enjoyed painting the rocky cliff but also the far distant mountains. 
Many Canadians who visit the canyon also stand at the same spot, enjoying the view, and this 50cm by 70cm painting, on stretched canvas, is full of cheerful russet hues, different from our greens and blues.
Available direct from me. Send email.

"Alison" 6x6 oil on canvas board


By Ron Wilson with a salute to the style of  Milt Kobayashi.
 It was from the inspiration of artists such as Velasquez, Whistler, Chase, Sargent
 and others that Milt found his particular use of color,
 pattern, and his compositional style. My mentors too.
