1183 The Blue House, McGill Ghetto 8x10 egg tempera

sold-LA USA
Here's yet another version of "The Blue House". I really like the blockyness of this arrangement of buildings and the courtyard. And that tree is so elegant. I'm pleased with the way it turned out.

1180 St Dunstans Basilica, Charlottetown, 8x10, egg tempera

sold-Coon Rapids MN USA

Here's a New Year's scene from Charlottetown. The woman in the middle of the street walked by me and said "I'm going to New Year's Mass at the Basilica". She was bursting with energy and a huge smile. Her joy and enthusiasm was the best testament ever. I was so tempted to follow her. 

I will post this on an ebay auction tomorrow. I have started working on my website. ( I deleted the hundreds of images I had on there. Now I want redesign the website so that it is organized and the paintings are organized into what's available, prints, and auctions.  It's a free weebly website. It will do all that I want it to do. The problem is that I don't know how to build a website with weebly....Totally forgot how I did it in the first place. Now I have to relearn it and I'm a little technologically phobic. Plus the old brain is....well....old and wearing out.  I'm going to watch some youtube tutorials on how to build a website with weebly.

1178 Lorne Avenue, McGill Ghetto, 8x10, egg tempera

This is similar to an oil paining I did a while back. It was such a hit that I decided to do a similar scene in egg tempera. I wonder if it will get as many hits.It was fun to do. All those layers and layers of transparent paint. I like the dog.

1176 Learning to Skate at Outremont Park, 8x10, egg tempera

sold-Surrey BC

I just finished this one today. I really like the narrative. EBay has offered me a great promotion on auctions so I might put this on auction starting Saturday. Pictorem also has a new printing service for artists which I'm going to give a try as there seem to be no limitations on the quantity of images I can upload for free. However I will have to take the highest quality photographs. So I'll have to read the manual for my camera. Sheesh....I don't like reading manuals.

1175, Charlottetown, Steeples, 8x10, egg tempera


Another charming subject. This work has dozens of layers of glazes. Especially the snow in the foreground has a lot of depth.
I can go a little overboard with the snow on the branches and power lines...but it really is that snowy in Charlottetown. And the snow tends to be the sticky sort...perfect for making snowmen.
