New “Old” Painting Installed in The Break in Time Cafe

Just another reminder that my paintings are at The Break in Time Cafe here in Creston, BC!
Just installed this new “old” painting yesterday – this large piece has been hanging in my own home for years and this is the first time it’s ventured out into the great wide world. This is your chance to take a peek at it in real life!

‘Lake View’ – acrylic on canvas – 12 x 16

Over the next few months I’m working on creating a series of paintings inspired by local landscapes scenes and details. I love where I live and I’m truly excited about focusing in on the Creston Valley area. After I’ve completed this collection it will actually be on sale and displayed at a sweet little cafe here in town here called ‘Break in Time‘.  I’m super honoured that Break in Time asked me to display my work there and I promise I’ll take pictures when everything is up!

This piece here is inspired from a photo I took on a trip down to Kootenay Lake last summer. I saw these trees and couldn’t resist making my husband pull over. (I do that to him a lot… :D)

IMG_0855_SmallIMG_1943_SmallI am finding lately that study sketches help a great deal – particulalry because they get me more interested in and excited about painting. IMG_1968_SmallIMG_1994_SmallIMG_1996_SmallI kinda forgot part way through painting this one to take more progress pics… oops! So here’s a big jump to the finish line!
IMG_2000_SmallIMG_2003_SmallI find it interesting with this one that I didn’t focus right in on my rainbow bright but instead took a more green, yellow and blue subdued road. (Well, subdued for me that is.) 😉

Look forward to sharing more of this series with you as it develops. Happy weekend!!!
