A great week in the studio

I'm currently working on seven panels at once, which is a lot even for someone like me, who hails from Short Attention Span, Ontario. At the early stages, I often work similar motifs on all the paintings, they evolve gradually into something more unique.
Anyway, the painting is going really well, and here's a sampling of my past week at the studio. 

I can't get enough ombre, my resin work and
now my paintings have that dip-dye look.
The cats better watch out...

Did some collaged stripes with a 60's feel.

I started striping it, but I stopped since it looked great already.

The stripes led to patchwork patterns.

More crazy quilts, I think it's the combination of order and wild pattern I like.

 These lovely layers are already gone, and now I'm working on some florals inspired by spring.  Stay tuned...


  1. These are so beautiful! I love seeing how the process unfolds - keep it coming! And thanks for keeping me updated :)

  2. Thanks Genevieve, nothing like a little encouragement to keep me going in the studio!

    1. Thanks Rachael, I loved them too, it was tough to cover them up for the next layer. Maybe they'll be revealed at the end...

  4. A week's work that's so beautiful and tangible-that must be satisfying.

    1. Yes, I think photographing them in stages makes the process more permanent, and something to look back upon.
