    Hi Debbie, Wonderful website, great showcase for your work. Perhaps ironic that the first picture I saw was of a special farm!! Keep up the great work and kudos to Brett for the great job he did showcasing your work.

    Take care, Arlene

    Hi Debbie:

    I heard about your site from my friend Lisa Purcell from Nova Scotia. I am originally from there as well but now live on Vancouver Island. I also am an artist. Love your work! You definitely are a gifted artist and in oil as well! I use mostly pastels with some acrylic thrown in on occasion. If you like have a look at my blog. I post on a regular basis. Keep up the great work. Linda

    You have a wonderful way with words, and your descriptors tug at my heartstrings.

    Cheryl told me that you had launched a new website. It’s wonderful and Brett did a super job. Your plein air paintings are magical — you capture the light beautifully on the canvas. Continued success.

    Hi Deb:
    Just taking a break from my studies and thought a cup of Red Rose and a trip to an art gallery might lift that heavy feeling of information overload. So, I visited your site. I found I forgot about time as I entered an old fashioned visually pleasing gallery of image and written word. IN a word -SPLENDID. If you are keeping stats, my favorite painting was Renewal and my favorite message was the story of Centerpiece. Brett, it is obvious that you skillfully designed this space with much love. What a gift for the two of you to work together on presenting this project. Thanks Deb for sharing your incredible talent. May many blessings shower over you and your gifts to continue capturing such beauty on canvas.

    Debbie: Beautiful work! My favorite is “A Stately Presence”… I love the depth of field. I also liked “Renewal”, “Rounds”, “Cradle the Land” and “A Day’s Work” too. I have painted pieces similar to “Evening Reflections” and “A Wash of Light” before too… funny how artists are often drawn to similar scenes. 😀

    I also enjoy your comments under each painting… keep up the good work!

    Take care!

    PS… it’s supposed to get up to 74 degrees here in Houston today… wonder what the weather is like in Novia Scotia this time of year? Are you starting to see signs of spring yet? How early in the year are you able to go out and paint on location? -K-

    Talented, talented Debbie! Gifts from Nature do come in small packages and can only really be seen when you look for them, and at them. Thanks for showing us a few of nature’s gifts, and beautifully too!

      Oh Noirin I so appreciate your sweet words!! Thanks for taking the time to visit my site and leave a comment. Hoping nature shares little gifts with you too. xx

    Hi Debbie, I really enjoyed your art. It inspires me to strive harder. I am a decorative artist, my likes are suddenly changing for the finer arts. Although I have been told that my work is beautiful, it just doesn’t compare with yours. My style is changing more like yours. I will keep watching your work. Sorry for rambling on, it’s good to exchange thoughts with another painter. Thank you, Pat

    Debbie, your website and work is beautiful! I am so happy to have an another artist contact in Nova Scotia….my trip and experiences up there this summer were wonderful and I can’t wait to come back!
