Westport Postcard

It only took me five years, but I finally got around to illustrating a vintage-style postcard for my village of Westport, Ontario. Ever since I moved here I have had the idea to create one of these for the village but work kept getting in the way. Then, a year ago, the village tore up the old basketball court in the park as part of the village’s park rejuvenation project. The plan was to build a new one, but we would need to raise funds through community projects and initiatives to make it happen. I decided to finally get to work on this postcard in order to donate all proceeds from the sales from postcards and prints towards the basketball court. Once that project is complete I will continue to donate the sales towards helping to keep the park maintained.

Paintings of The Netherlands

It’s been a busy and fun summer and I’ve realized I didn’t write about my trip to the Netherlands. Chantal and I went in May and had an amazing time touring the country. We saw so much incredible art, and not just the usual heavy hitters of van Gogh or Rembrandt, but we took in the amazing Frans Hals museum, Anton Pieck museum in Hattem, The Kroller-Muller Museum in De Hoge Veluwe National Park, and our absolute highlight – the Rien Poortvliet Museum on Tiengemeten, a little car-free island only accessible by ferry. I would highly recommend any of these museums but above all the Poortvliet museum is worth it, even if you’re in Amsterdam for a few days, try and make the trip down.

We painted and drew a LOT on this trip and are selling prints of our work. Mine are here. We packed our stools and sketchbooks and painting kits and painted so many beautiful places. Here are the results of my plein air paintings in The Netherlands.

I have been working away on portraits and haven’t posted a portrait roundup in a while, so here is a look at some of the portraits I’ve been working on in the last 6 months or so. It’s always fun to get to draw so many faces!
