I have wanted to paint something to replace the Superman over our bed, and I couldn’t think of a place more beautiful than Positano, one of our Honeymoon destinations! It is a beautiful addition to our home, and has as much meaning to us as our Toronto Skyline painting :)
This painting is 30×40″ in Oil Paints.

This 11×14″ Taj Mahal was a colourful interpretation painted in Water Colours. You can see my work in progress below :)
After checking out Paintlouge in Markham and trying out Acrylic Paints seriously for the first time, I finally made it back to the Paintlounge in Toronto to learn how to build textures. The amazing 3D effect was a lot of fun to develop, and I had a great time practicing the techniques on this colourful freestyle peacock :)
As a Paint Nite instructor, I always tell my friends to find a location near them and check out Paint Nite. It’s a super relaxed environment and a lot of fun. That being said, PaintLounge is a great place to build on techniques, and the overall environment there is really inspiring.
This peacock painting in acrylics was done in a little over an hour for my PaintNite “Interview” :)
On September 22, Handicare International is having its annual fundraiser. I have always supported this charity, as over 90% of their proceeds go directly to help the cause. This year I will be donating a couple of paintings for their silent auction; Tangled, and two surprises :). I decided I’d attach a small card along with the paintings, to direct those who bid on my paintings to my website. I designed these two cards last week, and printed a few out on my HP printer.
(Please ignore my chipped nailpolish!)
A couple of years ago, I was painting on Canvas with Acrylic Paints. As I was waiting for a layer of paint to dry, I started doodling with the Acrylics on my hand, and ended up with this white & blue henna design. I’m not sure if I would ever sport something like this in public, but it was a fun way to kill time :)
Owls seem to be very “in” in the art world. I’ve stumbled across many Owl cards, Owl stuffed toys, and even Owl needle felts. I have to say, some of them are extremely cute, and I might try my own stuffed toy sometime soon.
In the interim, here is a quick Owl doodle I did using my Stabilo pens. Not complicated art by any means, but it did keep me occupied during my commute!
