This will be the smallest in my show, I usually work bigger but actually enjoyed painting this. I also discovered that the Delphinium is my new favourite flower to paint!

I'm almost finished my paintings for the group show I'm in this June. I loved this piece of fabric I found at a discount textile outlet here in Toronto. I have since used it in another painting and will post that soon along with some others that I will be signing and varnishing this week.

I love pattern and beautiful textiles! and I've been having a lot of fun introducing them into my paintings. It's brought back alot of memories of when I temporarily worked at a textile design house here in Toronto back in the late 80's. A ton of work went into designing and painting several colour ways for each design sample, all done by hand by the way.

Another one for my show coming up in June! For some reason I really enjoy painting in a square format, the compositions are more interesting to me. My next two are also square but then I'm back to working large and rectangular.

This is another for the group show in June. I've been experimenting with single blooms and textiles and also working a bit smaller than usual.

This is one of about ten new paintings I'm doing for a spring group show. It's an exciting time of year to be painting florals, all the flower shops are starting to get the first signs of spring in and that makes me VERY HAPPY!!
