Hello Everyone! Welcome to spring at its finest! Hope you all had a wonderful winter and found many things to keep you busy and happy! I spent most of the winter doing what I love to do painting! The subject that I kept doing over and over to ensure I had enough originals was this Loon! Loons have a very special place in my heart as it was something that brought my father and I closer together! My father build custom made acoustic guitars and did carvings as another outlet of with masterful woodworking skills! My father carved loons and then would hand them off to me to paint and they would be mounted on a wood plank our combined masterpieces were created. My father has since long passed and the final carving has been painted and hung proudly with family but I continue to yearn the painting of a loon. I promised myself that when I found the perfect picture of a loon I would attempt to recreate a painting of the beautiful loon. I meet a fellow artist and friend Shelley Prior and low and behold she had the most amazing shot of a loon ready for flight and I knew that was the one! So in memory of my father I painted this loon and will continue to paint more originals so that my whole family with also have loons in their wonderful family memories! Hope you all have a wonderful creative inspiring day!

It's been a while since I blogged, between my wonderful role as Nanna, my Moms continued battle with cancer and being busy in my studio it has been a busy life to say the least! Well my paintings are finally out there, besides what is hanging in people's personal homes. I was given an amazing opportunity to have my art displayed at a fine dining restaurant:). The theme requested was Mediterranean and so the paintings done specifically for this restaurant "Clarkson Mediterranean Bistro" located in Mississauga, Ontario Canada are a variety of landscapes and still life items found in the Mediterranean! The originals can be purchased directly at the restaurant! While there enjoy one of their many superb dishes! If you are interested in purchasing a print instead you can do so at this website! In galleries choose painting to find mediterranean paintings amongst my other pieces. Perhaps you just want greeting cards, there is a wide variety of sizes and finishes to choose from. Any of my paintings and photography can be purchased as an iPhone case at my website www.brendabrown.pixels.com Thank you very much for your continued support! If you have any questions please feel free to contact me via email. I also do commissioned pieces from your photograph :)
