Superior View

This is the first painting in a series of 12″ x 12″ paintings celebrating Canada.

There are many spectacular views to be seen while traveling along Highway 17 around Lake Superior. On the stretch of the Trans Canada Highway between Wawa and Sault Ste. Marie, this scene was spotted. It merited turning back for a better look. Here is a painting of that view of Lake Superior.

I thought this scene deserved a larger (36″ x 48″), more detailed painting as well.

Here is a picture of that painting…

South Baymouth, Manitoulin Island

On travels to Lake Superior we’ve taken the Chi-Cheemaun ferry from Tobermory to South Baymouth on Manitoulin Island.

On the first half of the trip, we don’t stay long in South Baymouth; as we’re eager to  continue on and explore the shores of Lake Superior.

On the way home, while waiting for the Chi-Cheemaun, there’s time to enjoy the sunset in South Baymouth…

The painting is 30″ x 60″, acrylic, on stretched canvas. The pictures show the development of the painting by adding many layers of paint. The original painting is currently for sale.

The Beauty of Canada

I started another series of square foot (12″ x 12″) paintings to celebrate the beauty of Canada. These are acrylic, 12″ x 12″ on stretched canvas and are $225/each. As I add to this series, you can see more at https://sheila-diemert.pixels.com/collections/canada+150
On my website it shows which paintings are still available as originals and which are available as prints/reproductions only.

Here are some of the paintings in this series, and there are many more “works in progress”.

The Beauty of Winter

Well, it’s another cold winter day with a fresh snowfall.  This year the snowbanks are high and there always seems to be more shovelling to do.  I was never a big fan of winter, but I’ve come to appreciate the beauty much more since I’ve been painting winter scenes.

Here are a few of those scenes…

Still Life Paintings for a Birthday Present

Today I sold 4 still life paintings for a present for a 60th birthday.  I like grouping the paintings with some black backgrounds and some textured backgrounds (as in the picture below showing the ones purchased today).
