I sure have been neglecting this poor old blog of mine lately even though I have quite a few paintings that I’ve completed. So here we go!
For someone who knows and cares very little about cars, I sure do paint a lot of them. Here is the newest addition to the collection, which was done as a commissioned piece.
Some step-by-step progress pictures.
Something I often struggle with is knowing when a painting is done. It’s so easy to get carried away and end up overdoing it. This painting is a good example of that. If you look at the second last progress picture and the final one, you’ll notice I had to “undo” a lot of what I painted. Live and learn
And the finished product:
And here I am with the finished painting.
This painting was a commissioned piece therefore it is already sold, however prints, up to 18″x12″ are available for sale here.
I recently started yet another commissioned car painting, and this one is huge!! 48″x36″!!! I can’t wait to finish this one and share it with you all. Like my Facebook page to see progress pictures.
Thank you Ottawa for hosting another super successful Timeraiser! The 7th Ottawa Timeraiser took place Nov 8th, 2014 at the Canadian War Museum in Gatineau, Quebec and it was a fantastic night.Things we can be proud of:
- The event raised 3695 hours of volunteer work for the Ottawa community
- There was an amazing chocolate fountain that kept me busy all night
- The venue was beautiful

Once again this year I am fortunate enough to have been selected as one of the artists for the Ottawa Timeraiser, taking place on November 8th, 2014 at the Canadian Museum of History (which is actually in Gatineau, but okay…). Here is your chance to go home with an original piece of artwork, valued up to $1000, by pledging to volunteer in the community for a certain number of hours over the next 12 months.

I hope you all had a Happy Canada Day yesterday!!
I may be biased, but I’m fairly certain that I live in Canada’s most beautiful city, which also happens to be our capital. I moved here just under 4 year ago for school, and initially thought I would be getting the hell out the second I was done school. Winter here is COLD and I don’t do well with cold. But then summer happened, and I fell hard for this city. My reasons why Ottawa is the best city:
1. The Rideau Canal
In the summer, you can bike along it for miles. In the winter, you can skate on it, right up to a BeaverTail booth. Year round, it breaks up the downtown and makes for beautiful views and beautiful sunsets.
