New Series 'It's a Frog's Life' Now Complete

07 January, 2024 1 comments Leave a comment

It took me twelve months, but I finally finished the three paintings that comprise my new series 'It's a Frog's Life'.

These pond scenes were inspired by photogenic frogs we encountered during our latest visit to Point Pelee National Park, and some glorious pink water lilies I saw blooming in Timmins, ON several years ago.

At the beginning of this project, I wrote about My Fabulous Frog Encounter. Click here to see the cute frogs that inspired this series.

Using my reference photos, I created 12 x 12 inch compositions by placing frogs onto appropriate perches, such as lily pads or a log.

I invented titles to describe what I thought the frogs may have been thinking in those moments.

While working on this series, I enjoyed working with bright, happy colours, and painting the fascinating up-close details of Nature.

One of these paintings has found a forever home, but the other two are ready to hop off to their new pad. Click on the images if you would like more information about these paintings.
