Wild Words

Surfing the Net the other day, I came across a contest for a book cover.  I've never done a book cover and since I had a painting I thought suited the book's concept (see my previous entry), I sent it off.  Here it is.  I got a lot of my inspiration from an amazing website, The Book Cover Archive.

Old Lady Stomping

I'll be showing at the beautiful Red Brick CafĂ© in Guelph from October 2 to November 13, 2011 and plan to paint different urbanscapes of Guelph and the surrounding area.  Here's a view of the downtown from Eramosa Road.  It's one of the first scenes I've painted with snow.  I would have loved to paint it outdoors but my paints would have frozen!
