Herringbone welcomes British Columbia’s Perry Haddock

Vibrant. Luscious. Exuberant. Describing the work of Vancouver-area painter (and retired fine arts teacher) Perry Haddock makes me sound like a thesaurus. I mean, look at this:

‘Heavenly Bamboo 3’ by Perry Haddock

Bold. Brilliant. Vivid. I could do this all day.

‘Up the Sound 3’ by Perry Haddock

Inspired by the natural beauty of his west coast surroundings, Perry approaches painting with an impressionist’s eye, seeking to capture a fleeting moment or mood. He does it gorgeously. Colourfully. Fearlessly. Okay, I’ll stop now.

‘Moraine Majesty’ by Perry Haddock

We couldn’t be happier to welcome Perry Haddock to the Herringbone family!

Herringbone welcomes Ontario’s Krystle Moore

In a quiet town just outside the wild bustle that is southern Ontario, painter Krystle Moore has her eyes on the skies.

‘Big Sky/Going Home’ by Krystle Moore

Dark and foreboding or pretty and cheerful, Krystle’s landscapes are a treat for anyone who needs a quick hit of uncluttered countryside.

‘Grateful’ by Krystle Moore

Like a true cloud aficionado, sometimes she even does away with the land completely. Dreamy, isn’t it?

‘Night and Day’ by Krystle Moore

We love Krystle’s light hand and beautiful palette and are delighted to welcome her to the Herringbone family!

“For goodness sake, don’t let temporary depression, isolation, or any other feeling interfere with your work…Remember, when discouraged, that there is a rhythm of elation and dejection; and that we stimulate it by creative endeavour.” – Lawren Harris, from Growing Pains: The Autobiography of Emily Carr

today’s thought

“One is never tired of painting because you have to set down not what you knew already, but what you have just discovered. There is a continual creation out of nothing going on.”  – William Hazlitt

“I believe that true identity is found in creative activity springing from within. It is found when one loses oneself.” – Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Herringbone welcomes Ontario’s Marianne H Neilsen

If you think you hear music when you look at the beautiful work of Ottawa’s Marianne H Neilsen, you aren’t alone.

‘Hidden Land of Fairies’ by Marianne H Neilsen

Music is a significant source of inspiration to Marianne, who explains that as she paints, “I feel as though I’m dancing amongst the stars.”

‘The Brush of Love’s Light’ by Marianne H Neilsen

Like dancing, painting is a physical process for Marianne. She pushes and pulls and scrapes and layers and works the canvas, using vibrant, juicy colours to express a wealth of emotions.

‘Secret Garden’ by Marianne H Neilsen

We are big fans of Marianne’s work and are delighted to welcome her to the Herringbone family!
