"Sunset Crescent" 14 x 10  inches oil on cotton canvas mounted to hardboard 

( Landscape Category)

 

 

posted by Robert March 28, 2013

Clouds, what are they? A scientist might describe them as the engine of Earths weather system, or  water  vapor  that settles on dust particles in the atmosphere. This description while true, does not describe  their affect upon  the human eye and mind, or upon our emotions. Who among us hasn't looked up on occasion and noticed the play of light and shadow taking place there in the clouds?  More poignant though is this, who hasn't felt the drama of that play and been amazed by the churning visual artistry therein?  

Another point of interest is earth’s moon, bound by invisible gravitational forces it moves silently across a day or night sky, a celestial figure so familiar to us as to become almost ordinary.  When the moon is full, there is something eerily enchanting in its cool pail reflective light upon glittering waters and twilit lands. In this painting, the crescent moon adds yet another lair to nature’s subtle sky drama and mystery all around.

posted by Robert February 13, 2013

While visiting friends in the town of Thornbury this summer, I could not help notice the wonderful array of flowers planted around their home. This particular arrangement stood at the foot of the stairs leading up to the front deck. The dappled sunlight through the cedars that stood to the left played whimsically upon the paving stones, cedar stairs and flowers alike . . . a painting of my impression of that moment ensued.

"The Healing Hands of Intention" 18 x 14  inches oil on linen mounted to hardboard 

( Portrait Allegory)

The idea for this painting came suddenly upon me while on a walk.  It marks the start of a new category to be added among those of Portraiture, Landscape, Homes & Cottages, Historical and Still Life. I now include "Allegory" among them.

"Dandelions Edge" 12 x 10 inches oil on canvas mounted to hardboard 

( Landscape Category)

At the foot of a cascading waterfall by the Elora Mill, I saw these familiar yellow flowers of the dandelion hanging on tenaciously to a rocky outcropping. Of course it quickly dawned on me that this might make an interesting subject in a painting.
