The garden steps at Swan Lake in Victoria BC. I did this painting in front of about twenty-five thousand strollers-by as a demo at the Moss Street paint in, 2009. It's based on my smaller oil sketch which I painted en plein air some weeks ago. Click on the little white envelope below for any questions. Click on the image for a larger view of my painting.

Because of my weekly contact with other artists, I'm beginning to paint looser and thicker which certainly helps produce the kind of TEXTURE I'm looking for in my paintings. It's the portrayal of LIGHT combined with sound COMPOSITION that matters to me now.
