Lighthouse: McNutt's Island oil on canvas Just found out that the "Old Houses" on McNutt's Island, Off Shelburne have all been torn down....glad I was able to get over there to capture a bit of the past. $500.
UPDATE: My current work: "TURBULENCE SERIES" has been influenced by the current atmosphere of the political situation and divisions we are going through. This series is mainly on canvas using Chalk Paint which is a continuation of my medium used on my painted art furniture. I'm happy with the safety factor: no noxious fumes. I working on re-claiming and re-purposing furniture: painting images, using Chalk Paint and waxes and experimenting with "encaustic-like " painted surfaces. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, I graduated with honors and awards from the N.S.C.A.D.U., Halifax, NS. Over the years, my prints, paintings and Limited Editions of Historic Halifax, the Tall Ships, Peggy's Cove, Grande Pre, and Shelburne, NS and Montreal, QC, have made their way around the world.
While traveling in Europe, North Africa, South Korea, Canada and the United States, Judy continues to pursue her enjoyment of Plein Air painting, documenting her travels and painting historic landmarks, gardens, etc. Her work can be found in numerous private, corporate and public collections, here and abroad.
Judy's interest still lies in landscape painting. Currently her focus is more on the exploration of the reflection of abstract images in our reality. However, this does not mean submitting to abstraction for the sake of abstraction but understanding how that image affects our reality. There is a shifting of interest in the exploration of the surface, texture and juxtaposition of planes as they exist, both in reflection and in reality.
