Seeking Homes for Paintings

MOUNT ASSINIBOINE and SUNBURST PEAK, B.C.  36" x 48" gallery wrap canvas (painted edges, no frame)
Retail price $6300, I'm offering it at $3500

Bill and I spent February in beautiful Victoria, B.C. which served to reignite our 1980s dream to live there. We'll move once we have sold our charming, character home, in Claresholm, Alberta.

While it will be sad to leave the fine friends we have made here, and oh how we wish we could take the house with us, it is time for these gypsies to move on. If you are interested, or perhaps you know someone who may be interested, in purchasing our home please view and/or share this listing.

The move will be epic in that we are downsizing from a large house to a condo (yet to be discovered). A mighty purge is underway. Among the many treasures we can't take with us is a large inventory of my paintings. I have created an album of these here. Please click on the individual images to see the titles, details and prices. Depending on the size of your screen you may have to scroll down to see these texts.

Check back from time to time, there will be more added. Below are a few examples of what you'll find ...

LAKE AGNES LARCHES   18" x 24" framed oil on canvas   Retail price $2750, I'm offering it at $1500. 

The "cherub painting" below has been considered a significant departure from my usual subject matter. In 1985, I created it for The Myth of Exceptional PassWhyte Museum juried, invitational exhibition about a magical, fictional place in the Canadian Rockies. 

Retail price $4900, I'm offering it at $2500.
This painting was featured on the show's invitation

The collection has a wide array of subjects to chose from, you may see a piece you always wished I would release, or you may just want to take advantage of the attractive, reduced prices.

EXOTIC TULIPS, Golden Girls Series #6   15.5" x 10" unframed acrylic on paper
Retail price $950, I'm offering it at $500
(comes with conservation mat and glass to first a standard 18" x 24" frame)

There is the odd surprise ...

RENOIR'S VENUS VICTORIOUS, sculpture from his garden in the south of France 18" x 24" framed oil on canvas
Retail price $2750, I'm offering it at $1500.

Renior, suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, moved from Paris to his home, Les Collettes, at Cagnes-sur-Mer (near Nice) where he lived the last eleven years of his life from 1908 to 1919. To see the sculpture and the place that inspired me to paint the above please click here.


  1. I am very excited you will be in Victoria! Looking forward to getting to know you!

    1. Thank you Marcella, I feel the same way about you!

  2. Wonderful post, Alice, and lovely to peruse all those gorgeous soon-to-be-relocated paintings in your Flickr album. I WILL be sorry to see that lovely Claresholm place sell, though, even when I'm looking forward to your new location.

    1. Thank you very much Win - I think you'll enjoying visiting us in Canmore even more than you do here!
