These paintings are two of about 20 that will be at the Candler Art Gallery July 24-Mid August. In addition to the still lifes I'll be showing my new hybrid paintings publicly for the first time. I call them hybrids because they are a coming together of my fine art and illustration.

The Candler Art Gallery is in Camrose, Alberta on historical main street at 5002-50 St.

Early summer is one of my favourite times of the year, marsh ragwort season! Such a common name for such a beautiful all be it stinky plant. The sloughs in Alberta are ringed with gold while last year's grass and reeds glow salmon and pink in the sunshine. A week ago I painted this plein air at Elk Island, a national park just a short drive from my home. If you are interested in meeting people from other parts of the world this is the place to be. A contingent of international conservationists and an elderly couple from Switzerland were a welcomed interruption. For some reason people love to talk to artists!
