                                              Had interview with Niagara TV , check out
                                              the link
 
 


                              This is a mood painting where I played with colour harmonies
                              and lines to create a cool, almost mystical look. It's 16 x 20.
                              It's time for a change in direction as I intend to go back to the
                              studio and pursue a different style, subject matter, and even
                              play with different media. I really enjoy the privilege, and it is
                              a great privilege, of making art. More than a little tired trying
                              to self-promote and sell my work. I'm sure I'm not alone in that
                              regard. Let's have some fun!

                          A special thank you to all the wonderful people who supported
                          the Scogog Studio Tour this past weekend. Our site received
                          around 500 visitors over the two days. A very loyal and informed
                          arts community is to be found around Port Perry. On Saturday
                          May 30 and Sunday May 31, Sally WILDMAN is having an open
                          studio show at her Track Street Studio in Claremont, Ontario.
                          Her work is outstanding. Go check it out. This somewhat moody
                          painting is part of my Newfoundland paintings. It garnered lots
                          of interest on the weekend.

                                         This painting, 40 x 30,  appears in my recent show
                                         at the Pumphouse. It was almost entirely made up
                                         after a fun Metro Zoo visit this past winter with my
                                         son John. Although the composition and initial
                                         block-in was swift, a lot of left-brain compositional
                                         analysis proceeded. A different way for me, as usually
                                         the right-brain dominates.

                               Spent a glorious day in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Lots of tourists
                               on the streets, some blossoms out, weather balmy!!!
                               This is a picture of the Pumphouse Art Centre just behind
                               Fort George. Beautiful gallery and art centre. I have a solo
                               exhibition of 20 new pieces there for the month of May.
                               The opening reception is Sunday May 10th. The painting
                               below is one of new works. Great area, drop by!

                               This painting is one of 20 new paintings that will comprise
                               my solo exhibition at the Pumphouse Art Centre located in
                               beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake - wine and festival country!
                               The paintings are on show for the month of May. Our
                               opening reception is Sunday May 10. Check out their website
                               for all info. This piece is 24 x 24, mixed media and part of
                               my ongoing fascination with waves. Hope you get a chance
                               to take a look.
