This is another of the paintings mentioned below, a little
reminiscent of a previous style. It is only 80% finished,
need to punch up a few spots. In my previous post I meant
to mention that my email address is actually:
firstname.lastname@example.org , not the one posted here!
Although I haven't posted in such a long time, that
does not mean I haven't been painting. I am working
on 20 plus paintings for a commission in August.
I have done approximately 18 of them, but none have
the final signature and frame. This one, a Newfoundland
scene from Change Island is well on its way. Lots more

for all their support and efforts. This painting is
part of that exhibition. May 30 and 31st finds an
excellent art show in Claremont. Sally Wildman
is hosting a show of her latest work at her studio
( a very inspiring site) well worth a visit. Continued

Had interview with Niagara TV , check out
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.
