"Determined Thoughts"

This painting is cropped from a larger canvas. Originally 16" x 20" this version is roughly 6" x 12" oil on canvas. If you are interested in seeing the full version, let me know.

It appears that this beauty has serious things on her mind. Listening to her companion relate a certain series of events, you can sense the formation of an opinion. She knows her own mind... an open mind, one determined(guided) by principles long laid down.

I have a small study almost ready to post in a day or two. It is taken from the intersection of canal and river and I call it "Genesee Crossriver".

Til then... enjoy the weekend.

Castles Made of Sand

Here I am building sandcastles at the beach. This a favorite summer past time. I have come to this place on and off for over 40 years. Sauble Beach, Ontario on the base of the Bruce Peninsula of Lake Huron is quiet and little changed in all that time. This beach has it all, sand dunes, a long gradual incline into the water and great rolling breaker during the storm. Spectacular sunsets in the peaceful evenings.

This is 5" x 7" oil on canvas.
