Painting Tools

Oil on Canvas board 6 x 8" - This is my contribution to the Daily Paintworks "Paint What You Paint With Challenge". When I thought about the challenge, I realized that I use my camera and computer a lot, so I included them. The hard part was doing it without my favourite tools.

Beans and Peas

Oil on Hardboard 6 x 7" - I brought in the first of the beans from the garden today as well as the last of the peas. All the peas fought valiantly to reach the house but only this one made it.

My Cup is Running Over

Oil On Hardboard 7 x 6" - I found this silver cup in my stuff. It has my initials on it so I guess my parents bought it for me when I was a child. The finish is starting to lose its luster from age. How's that for a reflection?

The Lighthouse at Peggy's Cove

Oil on canvas board 6 x 8. Tourist places are sometimes popular for a reason. Peggy's Cove in Nova Scotia is one of my favourite places. If you go there, make sure you have gingerbread and ice cream at the restaurant but make sure that you do not go to close to the shore. Regularly, tourists are swept into the sea by surprise waves.
