Forgot to take progress shots of this (belated) little wedding gift but here’s me making some adjustments - the water was too contrasty and wavy here. I’ll post the final piece soon. Anyone know what place this image is of :)
I painted this from a Plein air sketch and photo references I took while at this months Marc Hanson workshop. It was one of those fall days that still felt like summer. And oh! The light glowing in this poplar stand — just dazzling! Poplars are not a common sight in the city anymore. City dwellers don’t like them because of their shallow and massive root spread. They’re looked at as a nuisance. So it’s a treat when I can see them in the country, where they can grow to their full glory. It was a ‘good to be alive’ kind of day. #poplars #fallcolors #fenceline #yycartist #pleinair #landscapepainting #fineart #artistsoninstagram #oilpainting #marchansonart @marcrhanson
I’ve been working on some floral studies that I am planning to paint big in the future!
8.5x10” acrylic painting on 11x14” canvas board. AVAILABLE.
Inspired by a @blackearthfloral arrangement! Check out their shop in Calgary!!!
In our cozy home office space working on a digital illustration commission this weekend. The office is meant to be my primary workspace in my other role as an email marketing specialist, however when the Cintiq comes out then it means I've put my digital illustration cap back on and it’s time to get artsy.
I also share the office with my partner who is busy working on his Masters at the moment and I've enjoyed adding lots of fun touches to the space like our magnetic dartboard and a place for Lola to snooze between our desks.
And full credit and a hat tip to @japicasso for the Wonder Woman and Okoye art that I keep as my laptop wallpaper as a reminder of all the badass women out there doing great things.

If you haven’t been to The Dandelion Cafe in Ramsey yet, I’m telling you, you need to go! The food is gourmet, the staff are absolute gems, and the atmosphere is wonderful. This place is a treasure for sure!
As well, I will be selling canvas prints from there until November. Scroll to the right to check them out. They are 24”x24” for $100. 🎨

Six beautiful flip cups!! 😍😍😍 This one is drying very well so far 🤞I'm super happy with the result!! (thank goodness because that was a LOT of paint 💸😝).
Watch for the marble I have to retrieve at the end because it fell out of the paint bottle into the cup as I was prepping 😂🙊
Happy Sunday morning! It's the start of a new week. Let's erase those negative thoughts and doubt. 😁😁
It’s a Myth…that Light Weights and High Reps Tone Best🏋️
This myth, popularized in the 90’s, that very high repetitions of very light weights would result in a toned physique, has become outdated. These high repetitions will increase your muscular endurance but will not add strength or tone.
We now know that in order to truly challenge your muscles, heavier weights with lower repetitions are a must. Start with an 8-10 repetition range and push your muscles with each set.
It’s my passion to make exercise a part of your life that you look forward to and are rewarded by. DM me for info on my 90 Day Health and Wellness Program. Completely online! 🤸🤸🤸
