Country Kitchen Blues
The standard equipment in any Country Kitchen includes a colander, wooden spoons and a crock…
Of course, we can’t forget the pristine white of the table cloth that had probably been hung out on the clothesline.

Pretty much every garden can boast beautiful vine ripening tomatoes. And these days, it’s not uncommon for an herb garden to be nurtured beside the vegetables. Garlic is just a staple that grows so well in our climate and soil.

I am a self taught Artist and have been painting watercolours since 2002 when I attended my first workshop. While not formally trained in art, I have attended workshops hosted by Linda Kemp, John Lovett, John Fisher and Shelley Pryor.
An award winning artist, my work has been accepted in a variety of juried exhibitions, including Eye for Art, Desmond Exhibition, Georgina World of Art, CCP Video Portrait Exhibition, Design for Summer, and Chatham-Kent’s Tastefest. My recent work is held internationally in private collections in the United States, Canada, Australia, Belgium, France and England. Most of my paintings can be viewed at www.charmingart.org.
I am one of 20 artists who collaborated in a world-wide painting project called the Global Village Round Robin and I completed my contribution to the painting on October 30, 2003. The painting traveled almost 40,000 miles, passing through 8 countries and 5 continents before it was finally finished on November 11, 2003! It was auctioned on Ebay and the proceeds were donated to a school building project in China.
My painting entitled “A World in Mourning” was selected and auctioned in 2005 to donate funds on behalf of the Canadian Red Cross for the Tsunami Relief.
In 2007, I was commissioned to paint the Baltimore City Fire Department’s newest fireboat acquisition, the John H. Frazier! It was an exciting and rewarding experience.
I teach Art to Home Schooled children each Monday. Several of my workshop demonstrations can be viewed online at www.wetcanvas.com in their Watercolour Learning Zone. “WetCanvas” is a Global Artists’ Community boasting more than 190,000 members worldwide. I am currently displaying work at ArtSpace, where I’ve led a one day Art Camp for emerging watercolourists.
