Off to the Mailbox by Claudia Urbach

 Off to the Mailbox, Downtown Ottawa, Oil on Canvas, 18x24 in.

 Walking downtown last fall, the colours of this random ensemble caught my eye.

New York City DPW Challenge (SOLD)

  Reaching Out in NYC, Oil on Canvas, 8x10 in.
Here is a small painting I did for the DPW challenge; my personal mission was to make the photo brighter, happier; I love the result!

ByWard Market--George & William St.

ByWard Market, Ottawa, George & William St., Oil on Gallery Canvas, 24x30 in.

I really like how the light effects worked in this painting; it was such a bright, beautiful day in the market.  The colours 'popped' and the balloon bucket added that perfect carefree feeling to the atmosphere.

Spring painting

Spring Blossom, acrylic on canvas, 11x14 

I was in the mood for spring, with all of its bright colours and fresh scents, so I happily plunged into creating this little painting.  It comes ready-to-hang, framed in a light beige wooden float frame.
