Lake Aquitaine - Ontario Landscape

"Lake Aquitaine  - Ontario Landscape"
Size 4" x 6" inches
Medium - archival artists oil paint

It was a beautiful day and I couldn't resist taking my small pochade box  for some plein air painting in the neighbourhood park. It was so peaceful in the evening towards sunset;  the birds flying home; the treetops glowing with a golden light as they caught the last rays of the setting sun;  and  I wanted to reflect the tranquil atmosphere in my painting.

Hope you like it!

Still Life - Cherry Reflections

Size 5" x 3" inches
Medium - Oil
Painted on "Pintura" Painting Panels made in Italy  - primed cotton canvas mounted on wood panels

This is an original oil painting, painted in one sitting from life -  with brush marks  that remain visible after the painting is dry. This composition of two cherries and their reflections, so closely interrelated, reminds me of complex relations between us and the universe around us. What is real, and what is only a reflected image?
