Judy tackled the fiery skies and rosy atmosphere of a winter sunset over the Peace Country, Canada in this watercolour miniature. Its tiny dimensions are full of wonderful light and colour, just as we see it here in Northern Canada. Winter is very beautiful and ever changing here.
Judy’s miniatures of Northern Lights are stand alone pieces, but they also work great as a pair. A clear, frosty night brings spectacular aurora. Perhaps this is the same cozy cabin seen from each side?
Oh the lovely palms tossing in the ocean breeze! Here is Judy’s fourth miniature scene from her Kauai vacation. Now the well-travelled painting is in Beaverlodge for the annual miniature show and sale.
This is a lovely beach scene from Judy’s vacation – painted in Hawaii. The characters are great: you can imagine them discussing how far they can throw the rocks, or maybe if there are any sea monsters in the water. I think maybe the kid has his arms inside his shirt because it’s a little chilly, and he’s flapping the sleeves in the breeze, as kids do. The people add an element of natural charm that makes this tiny painting especially interesting.
Judy was able to snatch a few moments on her Hawaiian vacation to paint the gorgeous scenery of Kauai including this active ocean scene. This little image is ready to be hung in the Beaverlodge Miniature Show opening Sunday.
This one is a little difficult to figure out. The flower pot is on a ledge inside a screened in porch. In the background there is a juniper bush and some leafy stuff in a rock garden against the garage. The light was the part that caught my eye but, again, I never like my flower paintings as much as I would like to.
