In every blog post I’m doing something completely different! I’m kind of freaking myself out at this experimentation-phase-gone-wild. It’s fun, but it’s not moving me forward very much creatively!

This latest idea happened on Friday morning. By the evening I’d bought a couple of canoe paddles at Canadian Tire and had done this little watercolour painting.

By Saturday I was sanding and priming and researching and trying to figure out how to do this. The actual painting came next, and I discovered that acrylic paint works well, but is just transparent enough that it takes two coats, which takes too long! I haven’t figured out how to solve that problem but have several ideas on how to hang these for display.

Yesterday I added the design details on the handle. Today is varnishing day. And tomorrow?


  1. These are lovely. And everything you do moves you forward even if it doesn’t feel like that yourself. I love seeing what you do. Just wish I had an ounce of your creativity.
