(Home) – Studio Painting – 2nd Still-life Project – Limited Palette – Taking Shape

I was doubtful about this one, but I am still able to build up the volume from only two colours to play with. It takes a little more time, perhaps, but it's taking shape. I have to step away from it to see what I'm doing. I don't usually have to do that, so this … Continue reading (Home) – Studio Painting – 2nd Still-life Project – Limited Palette – Taking Shape

Unusual Green

My camera was picking up the green tint of the sunlight pushing through the canopy. It coloured everything green. Regardless of the filter, I played with, I couldn't render the grayscales of these mushrooms. So, I'll leave them with their toxic-radiation-green hue. I wonder if they glow in the moonlight too???  Prints & more available … Continue reading Unusual Green

The First Sign of…

This floated onto our breakfast table early last week on a particularly windy day. Could this be an early sign of f... You know what? Let's not mential the other "F" word just yet and just enjoy the beautiful colours that appeared at the breakfast table on this particularly windy, Summer's day!

Adding To My Palette

We discovered a new colour in the garden the other day... this gorgeous powder-blue. It popped up long enough for us to grab this shot and share it but quickly disappeared later that same day. We have yet to see other buds or blossoms from this vine and it makes it all the more spectacular … Continue reading Adding To My Palette

A Brightness of Yellow

In a field filled with greens, there spoke a tiny voice loudly! this tiny yellow flower shone with such volume that it became a brightness of colour. It shouted, "see me shine, see my beauty, see my yellow"! It is beautiful, joyous, and glorious. Prints & more available at Arts MPerron @ https://1-mario-perron.pixels.com

A Glory of Magenta

This one is all about the colour... impure magenta... flawed to perfection with white pollen and bug bites. The sun loves it! These petals often dry to a brittle paper and even keep some of this colour. I'll have to venture out this Fall to see how they look after their Summer of sun-love. Prints … Continue reading A Glory of Magenta

A Beautiful Diversity of Colours

I've made some effort to keep the garden in the pinks that my wife enjoys, but this little bush was hiding where I didn't notice it. It was a house gift from Easter 2019 and we thought it had died last year. It was mostly green when I transplanted it to a recently cleared spot. … Continue reading A Beautiful Diversity of Colours

Digital Sunspots

Do you ever just have fun squinting at things around you? I do. It was a gorgeous day. The sun was shining through the leaves of the trees, which were gently blowing in the wind. The air was full of bees, dragonflies, mosquitoes, and flying beetles. Live was all around and delivering a cacophony of … Continue reading Digital Sunspots

It Won’t Be Long Now – The Hollow Ones #43

Let hope in and know that all things must pass, including all this Covid-19 craziness. Let the darkness dissipate. Let the fear move on and embrace the joyful light. We don't need to get back to what was normal, that is what brought on this acceptance of fear. Be light, be happy, be different, be … Continue reading It Won’t Be Long Now – The Hollow Ones #43

Hooray, Spring is here!

I feel compelled to shoot these little beauties every year after the snow melts. They seem to stay hidden under the leaves until every speck of snow has melted under the Spring sun, then they pop up and celebrate the seasonal change. I have yet to be there at the moment when they pop up, … Continue reading Hooray, Spring is here!
