Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my newsletter, where I will be posting my new paintings with progression photos showing the creation stages from beginning to completion, as well as art news of awards and upcoming shows.

Happily, my painting "Perennial Tapestry" – Watercolour on Paper, Framed 37" X 37 ½" – has just been awarded the Carl Schaeffer Award of Excellence. This painting was juried into the International Watercolour Exhibit organized by the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour (CSPWC), hanging at the Aird Gallery in Toronto.

I am including this painting here in my first newsletter, along with it's progression photos. The inspiration for this series has been the beautiful, bountiful landscape here in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
