Typical Winter Prairie Scene

Have you ever noticed that if a group of cattle don't know you, they will stand and stare until you pass by? I wonder what they are thinking? Actually maybe I don't want to know what they are thinking.....after all..we do eat them.

They are a hardy animal seemingly oblivious to the harsh weather around them. This is a painting of a scene that you would see just about anywhere on the prairies. Enjoy :)

Painted with acrylics this 6" x 4" OSWOA is listed on Ebay. Just click here

Northern Ligthts - Falling star paintings

It's in the -30s today. It is going to be in the -40s tomorrow with the windchill, so what better time to paint a cold crisp winter night. "Shooting Star" is an acrylic aceo (2.5" x 3.5") painted on paper canvas. It has a bit of "glitter" to give it that frosty starlit look.
"Northern Lights" is a 4" x 4" acrylic painting. I find it wierd that square seemed to be harder to paint than rectangle? I have no idea why. This one also has glitter, but I added just the slightest hint of blue and green in the northern lights to add to the magic :)
You will find them both listed on Ebay here

My Blog

I have shamefully neglected my blog these last few weeks. We've been moving. Not a far move, but a tiring one just the same. I'm no longer Southshoreartist from Kinookimaw, but Southshoreartist from Regina Beach. It just doesn't have the same ring to it, does it? LOL Anyway, I hope to get back to painting soon as I unpack all my art supplies.
