The days are short,
The sun a spark
Hung thin between
The dark and dark
. Updike

Between “dark and dark” is the perfect expression of a January day in Canada…sometimes the sun and the moon seem to meet, greet briefly, and pass on so quickly you wonder where the day went…Ontario, Canada…

Watercolour on Arches Not Paper…

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..
