What comes to mind - coffee, beards, man-buns... and bison... no?
"Wait, what if we had TWO horses?? Like, two big ones so we could ride side-by-side, instead of doubling all the time... someday."
Out of naive excitement, we always seemed to anticipate it to be a quick and easy job. At the end of the lane and under heavy snowfall, waited the perfect ice...
we just had to clear the dug out.
Oh, the inventive minds of the old days! Rather than being wasteful (or perhaps, realistic...) you kept EVERY little piece of this, because you could maybe use it later - for that.
His excitement was so obvious - because the closer we’d get to the farm, the faster we’d go...
We were cozy inside on a cool day (not bad at all for November though!) in the lovely little gallery space at Art Concepts. I felt like a proud mother-hen watching my...
For the past year or so now I've been working at documenting my artistic processes - from video footage to chemical experiments...
When I first picked up the little black and white photo, my jaw dropped. “Is that Lilah?” I hadn’t really seen many pictures from her younger years...
“I expect Ray will invite them in.”
I can picture her peering out the window at the farm. The unsung hero behind the famous hospitality of...
On October 11, 2019 in Estevan - at the perfect little gallery called Art Concepts - one of my life-long dreams become a reality. After so many months of working hard, planning...
As my subscribers have already learned - I have some exciting news to come in the next few weeks! So firstly, I need to officially address the rebranding that you may have noticed...
We were so proud - this time we had succeeded in getting both the bridle AND the saddle in place... or so we thought.
Well it's time to happily reveal another painting in the Common Ground series - "Prairie Rosemaling", a 12x12 coffee-colour of my late Grandmother.
I’d like to finally introduce the first coffee painting in the series - what I’ve been hinting at over the past number of months. My work has taken a new direction that I am so passionate about.
Thinking about spring brings back two specific memories for me. Firstly, it’s
the crocus. These little beauties still pop up in our pastures, and I can actually feel my heart tugging when I see them...
"Our morning coffee is very important for us on the farm. We all meet at the main house every morning - where we plan our days work, laugh, and even cry sometimes. We have a close family farming...
“When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore are the founders of human civilization.” Senator Daniel Webster (1840)
Good morning, dear friends.
I figure there’s no better time than a Monday morning to bring it up again – yeah… coffee. Coffee art. Not the latte kind (though I wish someone would embellish me an espresso right now!) but oh,
a very satisfying blending of two of my favorite things.
Here I am - the first quiet night of 2019. I’ve got my sketchbook and I am brimming with inspiration for the new creative days on the horizon. The coming 365 feel like a big messy pile of blank pages...
Yes, the first word is delicious... but the second, well, not so much! These two 'c's don't typically belong together in your thoughts... or do they?
My 'Faded Keeper' was the first of two commissioned paintings of the iconic Macoun Elevator (the second being 'Coffee and Crickets', a more historical version).
I drive back through my little hometown almost every week, so it really startled me when I stopped to take my reference photos and I realized the sad condition of the landmark! In my mind, I honestly expected that it wasn't much different than it was when I was on my way to school as a kid all those years ago...
Humboldt. A small town that's become known around the world through the most devastating of circumstances...
Yet in the wake of this dark trial, there's a light shining through.
"They woke up that morning hoping to win a playoff game - but they united the world instead." This is the tragic story of April 6, 2018.
I am so pleased to announce that
my entry "Deer in the Mist", in the Weyburn show placed THIRD - after 1280 votes were cast - competing against 37 entries! Wow, I was stunned!
This happens to be the first People's Choice competition I've entered, so placing was truly an honour! I am so grateful...
The satirical, acronym take-over of Valentine's Day: "Singles Awareness Day" - it just so conveniently spells out "sad"!
