Shack wacky…

Bleak and monochromatic view from my studio today…still snowing and the enormous snow banks are making everything feel so closed in. Predictions are for a colder than normal March. Roads are too greasy to venture out. So, as we must do to preserve our sanity in these parts, I am heading south for warmth and colourful inspiration. See you all at the end of March. K.M.


Spain…in progress

When they are finished, these 2 pieces will hang together for a client. They provided me some photo references from Costa del Sol and Malaga. I’ve been wanting to paint a cafe interior scene for a while so this was a good opportunity.



Small semi-abstracts

When I need to get creative energy going, something I like to do is take some 9×12 in. watercolour paper that I’ve previously randomly prepped with leftover paint, see if I can find a shape in the the daubs and go with it. Todays results…”Puzzle Tree” and “Peppers”.




“Love Triangle” – acrylic still life

Happy Saint Valentine’s Day all – “Love Triangle” – why olives for Valentines? Not only do they have “love” in them – check out those sexy S curves. The ancient Greeks knew what they were on about with that art concept. Hmmm – maybe they got the idea from olives!

Dramatic Pears

A couple more vibrant acrylic pears. They are small but mighty. The second one is a re-do of one I posted yesterday which although “fine” lacked some drama for me. Hope you enjoy the new version “Who’s the Bosc?”.
