this is a 24×36″ acrylic on canvas with a gel matte finish! The finish is new, and makes it feel so fancy (to me, anyways). i have plans to properly photograph this with my dslr, so here’s an iphone pic to enjoy in the meantime!

spring thoughts


i’m thinking about spring colours today, the daffodils in my neighbour’s yard and the yellow roses outside my work building, and the pink cherry blossoms by the water! i’m feeling inspired and positively motivated. after work, i plan to pick up another 24×36″ canvas to play with on my days off.

acrylic fun!

spring is coming! the combo of new spring colours along with the bright blues of the pacific ocean near my house are very inspiring. i’m enjoying painting with my windows open for a spring breeze and the sound of birdsongs – here are some colour studies to enjoy.

blue, blue, blue


continuing my love for watercolours! this one is on a 8×14″ watercolour paper, which is so much better then the sketchbook i usually use. i’m looking forward to doing more on these papers!

giant canvases are the best.


honestly, i’m over the moon with this 4×6 foot painting. i did it in an all-nighter with a palate knife and some great music. the colours and the movement are wonderful to me, and while i know there is most definitely room for improvement, i would love to keep workin on a large scale such as this one. more big canvases for me please!

do you prefer to work on a large or small scale? let me know!

two new paintings!


since moving my art space to the living room where i have more area and better lighting i’m getting back into acrylic painting! here are some warm-up paintings i’ve done recently while playing with colours.
