At the top of this site is a link to Art for All Canada’s Gallery. Gallery hours are from 12:30 pm to 10:00 pm daily. My exhibit will be installed the afternoon on Friday July 30, 2010 and ends the morning of Monday August 30th.

Temperatures of colours can be cool or warm. It is best that you allow one temperature to be dominant in your paintings. Warm colours are orange, red, and yellow. Cool colours are blue, violet and green. White and black are cool but this can vary when a colour is added. I am currently painting a winter scene. The dominant temperature is cool. The snow on the ground reflects the cool violet blue of my sky colour. I have also added some yellow white to reflect the sunlight and add a warm colour to contrast with the dominant cool colours.
