This pen and ink drawing of a Snow Bunting is my submission for the January issue of the Wood Duck, the magazine of the Hamilton Naturalists’ Club. The monthly feature is called Barry’s Birds.
Snow Buntings visit windswept and snowbound rural fields in our region every winter. This individual had a kernel of corn in it’s beak.
My hobby is birding. As such, I’m a member in a few clubs and organizations. One of these is the Hamilton Naturalists’ Club. The club produces the Wood Duck magazine nine times a year, from September to May. I recently submitted a pen and ink drawing of an American Kestrel for the December issue. The editor liked it and suggested we make it a regular feature. Barry’s Birds has hatched and taken flight!
ArtWorks 2016 is a bi-annual OCADU (Ontario College of Art and Design University) alumni juried exhibition. The exhibition is hosted by the Dignam Gallery of the Women’s Art Association of Canada. The twenty nine artists selected represent six decades of graduates and a beautiful catalogue has been produced to record the event.
The three jurors selected a strong and varied group of work and I’m pleased that HARVEST, my acrylic on canvas (18 x 24″), was accepted. I graduated from Fine Arts in 1981.

I’ve been represented by the Art Etc. Gallery Shop at the Art Gallery of Burlington, Ontario for two years. Recently, the volunteers and staff collaborated on a delicious project. The result is Potluck Postscripts, “a collection of favourite recipes paired with images of original artwork from Art Etc. Gallery Shop.”
The book is beautifully designed and four of my watercolours are featured. The first two images shown in the book are VIN ROUGE, by yours truly, and FENCE AND BARN, an oil pastel by Aleda O’Connor. We’re side by side in the cause of art and cooking as we are in everyday life.
If you’re looking for a Christmas gift with a creative flavour, drop by the Art Etc. Gallery Shop. It’s located in the Art Gallery of Burlington at 1333 Lakeshore Road, Burlington, Ontario.

The Saturday morning paper was a particularly enjoyable read today. Regina Haggo of the Hamilton Spectator has written a very nice review of the On The Rock exhibition at the Carnegie Gallery in Dundas, Ontario. I was very flattered and pleased to see my watercolour, YELLOW LLAMA, featured prominently.
Read the review online here. The exhibition continues until March 30.
Leisure Painter is the best-selling ‘Learn to Paint’ magazine from the United Kingdom. Last April, the magazine featured my watercolours on the cover and with a four-page article.
Leisure Painter is available in North American bookstores and can be purchased online and through Itunes.
My gouache on paper, YELLOW TREE, is featured in the Spring 2013 issue of Interiors Magazine. My thanks to the team at Interiors for the nicely written profile and for choosing my work. Here’s a look at YELLOW TREE in it’s entirety.
Last fall, I was commissioned by Leisure Painter, the best-selling ‘learn to paint and draw’ magazine from the United Kingdom. I submitted an article describing the evolution of my watercolour style. Obviously, I was very excited about the prospect of contributing to such a well-known magazine but the reality has exceeded my expectations.
A detail of my watercolour, THE STUDY, is on the front cover! In addition to that, I’ve been asked to produce more articles for Leisure Painter.
The April 2013 issue is at bookstores and news stands now. It can be purchased online at Painters Online and also from iTunes.
Thank you to everyone at Leisure Painter, particularly editor Ingrid Lyon, for believing in my work and giving me this wonderful opportunity. As always, I’m very grateful to my supportive students and to all of you who follow my efforts on this blog, which received it’s 75,000th view a few weeks ago.
