The Isaac’s Way Summer Art Auction #27 in Fredericton, New Brunswick has ended! And my painting ‘morning sky’ has sold for the full price of $260. I am so pleased since the charity is to provide for MUSIC lessons for kids-in-need.


My painting in the next Art Auction (runs September 25 to late January, 2017) is perfect for fall. It is entitled ‘blueberry red’ and depicts a blueberry field near Stewarton, New Brunswick in late autumn when the blueberry leaves turn a brilliant red.  The painting is 24″ wide by 20″ high, acrylic with gallery edges. I am donating 50% of the proceeds from my painting to the charity. I hope you like it!

‘blue’berry fields in autumn

with 4 comments

This time of the year, the only thing ‘blue’ about our blueberry fields is the blue sky above them.  The fields themselves are a blanket of scarlet and orange.

These are a few scenes of the October blueberry fields in south-west New Brunswick…

a well-used blanket

red with two black stripes

inexpensive facsimile of


a white

three-beaver blanket

stripes red, yellow, green


a blue sky

two vapor contrails


the yellow double line

on an asphalt road


a band of stars

across a light-starved sky


a red leather book

with black ribbons

mark passages for giving


       look down from heaven

       upon the fields, now white

       unto the harvest


a crimson blueberry field

in October, draped across bones

of the landscape

double tracks leading away

over the horizon
