Time Well Wasted, Macdonald Marine, Hamilton

11 x 14 oil on canvas
We have a small sailboat in Hamilton Harbour and spend part of the summer around boats. Every summer, I like to do a few marina scenes. This scene features the dock across from us just after a rain. The dark clouds were receding and a bit of light trying to break through. I like the name of the middle boat "Time Well Wasted" ..

Jazz and Art Show at Petroff Gallery

36 x 48 oil on canvas
I have been away from the studio for a bit, spending time with visiting family and various other summer time commitments. I hope to get back to steady painting very soon. In the meantime, I wanted to mention the Jazz and Art show that is presently on at Petroff Gallery. The show runs until August 8 and features some great paintings, glass, jewellery and  sculpture. It is a beautiful setting on Eglinton Avenue in a renovated bank. I was very impressed with how they combined the colours of my paintings with the other items for sale. Stop in and have a look
