Hot Off The Easel!

I just posted "Anthurium" an acrylic painting that I finished today. At times the painting comes easy like this one and at others it is a painstaking process. I have 3 more drawings ready to go so I will be updating soon. Don't forget to check out my other blog at the link provided on the About The Artist page. Take care of yourself, I will see you soon.

Back at my easel!

I am finally back at my easel after an illness and the newest creation is now uploaded and ready for sale. I love Canada geese and I hope that it shows in my painting. Growing up on the prairies, their familiar honking overhead signified the change of seasons. I loved to watch them as they landed on the nearby marshes and field to glean the last of the fall crops as they journeyed southward to their next nesting grounds. I am also adding a second piece called Bougainvillea. I loved doing the first piece called Bougainvillea Pots and had a new idea to do it in another way. It was a fun piece to create and I was satisfied with the end result. I have several new pieces in the works so I will be continually updating. This is just an exerpt from my 'real' blog. The link for that blog is on my About The Artist page. It is updated more frequently. Thanks for reading, see you soon. Sue

Where I Live

Undergoing MyBlogLog Verification As I sit here sipping my moccha, I ponder what I should have to say today. I guess I should begin by telling you a bit about where I live. I live in the northern BC town of Terrace, located on the Skeena River 153 km (96 miles) east of Prince Rupert and 581km (365 miles) west of Prince George. Terrace is 58km (36 miles) north of Kitimat, home to Alcan Aluminum. We boast of a population of about 11,000 in town and about 18,500 in the surrounding area. We are in a hybrid coastal/interior rainforest climate with about 129.5 cm (51 inches) of rain annually. We are also home to the Kermode or Spirit bear (Link: There is also great fishing in our area. In fact, the world record spring salmon was caught at the junction of the Kalum and Skeena Rivers with rod and reel, weighing in at 41.7 kilograms (92.5 lbs.)!! It is a beautiful area, full of wonderful things to photograph and paint. A better version of this blog is available at: See you soon!
