Curious Trumpeter | Etsy

Curious Trumpeter is an original oil painting on canvas board. This is the first trumpeter swan I ever painted. We were getting to know each other and were both slightly scared of each other! And yet, we were curious. I was thrilled to find the trumpeter swans in 2019 wintering over at the Bay. Unlike mute swans, they make trumpeting sounds which I love. The whole flock pipes up together for quite a good effect! This is an outdoor Winter snow painting. Framed in a new frame with pretty…

That Funny Cormorant | Etsy

"That Funny Cormorant" is a new pastel in 2020. It shows the Humber Bay with the CN Tower in the distance. It is part of the Hundred Views of the CN Tower series I am working on inspired by Hokusai's One Hundred Views of Mount Fuji. Cormorants are so amusing the way they dive under the water and you do not know where they will reappear. So cute. That Funny Cormorant is a pastel on 9 x 12 inch paper. It is shipped in a clear envelope. Please keep the pastel inside the envelope until…

Majestic Swans

Majestic Swans is a 12 x 16 inch oil painting on canvas paper. It was painted on the beach in Winter. The parent swan is carefully guarding two cygnets. The cygnets are changing from brown to white as they are growing up. One naps while the other grazes. Such beautiful, friendly birds! Painting this reminded me of my days as a graphic artist at United Press International. One day, Princess Diana was in town. How I wanted to go and see her! The photographers all around me were getting…

Seagull in the Surf

Seagull in the Surf is an original painting that is ready to hang. That is, it balances well even without a wire in back. This scene will brighten up your space and act as a little window.

On a windy day, waves appear. ***Free Shipping*** 8 x 8 x 1.5 inches, acrylic on stretched canvas Think of all the walls that could be improved with…

Canada Goose in a Snowy Field

Canada Goose in a Snowy Field is an original pastel drawing. Created in 2020, I like to call it En Route because the flock was stopping for a snack in the field en route to somewhere else. In Ontario, we have En Route stops for motorists along the highway where you can have a snack. Paper: 12 x 16 inches, acid free, tan pastel paper Signature: signed lower right. It is made to look like grass. Framing suggestions are on my website. The link is below. This pastel is big enough to be…

Swan on the Nest in the Cattails

Swan on the Nest in the Cat tails is an acrylic painting on hand stretched canvas. It makes a perfect gift for Mom. Medium: acrylic paint on hand stretched canvas For the past few years I have been studying how Charles-Francois Daubigny encouraged Claude Monet to paint in a boat on the Seine River. I like to study the people who influenced Claude Monet to better understand how he worked. The swans are very beautiful and majestic birds. The older people get, the more they appreciate…

Black and White Swan | Etsy

Black and White Swan at Toronto is a landscape of the Toronto skyline featuring Lake Ontario and a swan which is both black and white. In fact, it was a white swan, but I painted it white and black in honor of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's gift of 6 pairs of black Australian swans and 6 pairs of white mute swans to Canada in 1967. This skyline shows how it was in 2013 which is pretty much the same now. There is the CN Tower, the Sunnyside Pavilion and the windmill in addition to modern…
