Tiny feet cradled by mom and dad. Baby feet that are small for only a very short time. One of the lovely little details from a studio newborn photography session.

“Reaching For The Sun”
2016
17.75″ x 25.75″
acrylic on paper
painting by Debra Hunter

It seems like it has been ages since I have put up a blog post on this site. 2016 to this point has been busy and productive. Multiple paintings have already been completed this year, for some reason it has been just a very good year to this point for creating work. In addition to the painting, I have been prototyping new naturally dyed hand knits (for http://www.handmade-canada.com ), had some lovely portrait shoots, and spent quite a lot of time working with wood and carving. It seems I am spending more time working with my hands than on the computer, which explains the very sparse blog posts.

This year I have been painting on panel, canvas and paper. The work above was finished late last night and is acrylic on paper. I am still working with the Roe Islet subject matter, it seems the more I paint the more I find to paint and explore. This is turning into a beautiful project with so many possibilities.

Hopefully the blog posts will become more frequent in the coming weeks. It’s funny that when you are really busy and have lots to share that it is also when you have the least amount of time to blog. Hopefully I’ll be back with another blog post soon, however if you follow Instagram, I often put “in progress” images up under @debramhunter if you want to take a look.

Historic Schoolhouse – Heritage Square, Red Deer, Alberta, Canada

Historic Schoolhouse, Heritage Square, Red Deer, Alberta, Canada

The historic park area of Heritage Square always has an added sense of nostalgia once the snow arrives. Black and white enhances the historic feel and also helps to define the architectural qualities of the buildings housed in the square.

Fresh Portrait, Freshly Painted Studio

 studio portrait red deer gray_9633 aThe  studio has now been freshly painted in crisp neutral grays. Every so often I like to change the look of the studio, it keeps shooting more interesting and images more modern.

At present I am enjoying shooting a rather stripped down style in the studio. Less focus on props and gimics, and more of a focus on the person being photographed.

I love the classic look with a casual twist. Images that will hold up to the test of time. Presenting the best aspects of studio portraiture, great posing and lighting and a finely finished image.

Evening View to Clam Bay Farm – New Canadian Painting

"Evening View to Clam Bay Farm" 2015 12"x12" acrylic on panel

“Evening View to Clam Bay Farm”
2015
12″x12″
acrylic on panel

This painting was inspired by an evening view of historic Clam Bay Farm on Pender Island (British Columbia, Canada). Through the smoky haze of distant forest fires soft colors play in the distance.

A smaller sized panel, pastel colors and new subject matter  created new territory for painting. This is the second painting in the last couple of weeks with an agricultural theme. This is perhaps not what first comes to mind when you think of the Gulf Islands, but farming is definitely part of the island’s past, present and culture.
