"Where I have been and where I am going is always just an adventure away." - Barbara Simpson

Waterscapes and Landscapes

Since I was born I was exposed to a life of travel. It was inevitable that this would be the wanderlust that would strength my desire to explore and learn from life and travel, more. It is a pretty big world out there and I have hardly touched the surface. Still, for all the places I have been and where I am going, I am delighted to record in my painting diary these truly remarkable places I have had the pleasure of enjoying on my own and together with family, friends, in painting history. I am grateful to both of my parents, for such abundant opportunities and to definitely experience each location that we have lived, fully. Now, Mom watching from Heaven above, she knows (still), as does Dad, I continue on my faithful plan as it was set out to be, leaving impressions in this lifetime. After leaving home many years ago, I moved much and many adventures succeeded . And now, together with my amazing man who loves to travel as much as I do, travel is always on the forefront and another painting away adding to my painting diary. One might even say that (most days) I have the travel bug, seeking new adventure be it far away, or even as a tourist in my own hometown! 

On this page catch a glimpse of some of the breathtaking regions I have had the pleasure of living and or otherwise have visited. I do love the beach, being on the water period, so lots of water/landscapes! Each is a place in time documented in art history recorded in my painting diary.  Another adventure is just around the corner so be sure to visit again as I am sure to capture more, in paint!  Each painting is original, unique, one-of-a-kind and available for collection.

NEW 2019  Garden City Skyway

11"x14", acrylic/gloss varnish on gallery-wrapped canvas, unframed, edges painted, ready to hang. Available. Price: $400-  Contact Artist

The Backstory: I have always liked bridges and simply because they literally have a way of connecting people and places together. How great is that!! This bridge, also known as the St. Catharines Skyway, allows travelers on the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) to cross the Welland Canal. The location from where this particular bridge is viewed, along the Welland Canals Parkway, is a casual comfortable setting and a place to sit in your car and enjoy nature. You can also enjoy a hotdog or hamburger from the food vendor across the street. :) My sweetie and I enjoy this area. We'll sit and watch the birds fly by or the Canadian Geese with their baby ones in springtime. You might even catch a big ship go through! Interested in this 'original' piece of Canadian history, this painting?
