     Here are some more from the same show. It was a great experience and led to some
     wonderful friendships in Port Perry as I did many workshops there and actually
     joined their Lake Scugog Studio Tour this past spring.

    I recently signed up for a mentorship program with a gallery down in Arizona ( Xanadu)
    I had to submit pictures of work I had done. It got me a little nostalgic as I viewed
    some pictures from previous shows. These three were part of a show I has at The
    Farndale Gallery in Port Perry.

                                          The paintings continue. This is a scene from
                                          the tree tops. A beautiful vista that I played
                                           with. The colours and textures are quite

                              Tonight I worked on painting number 24 of 26 - two to go!
                              and they're blocked in. The question is does pressure and very
                              firm deadlines augment or harm creativity? I have some ideas
                              on the topic but fatigue might be influencing my choice. Feels
                              a bit like university all-nighters!

                                         For something quite different. Lots of collage and
                                         stamping going on here. Played a lot with texture
                                         in foreground. Love forests. You have to have special
                                         glasses on to see this view!

                              This is another in a large group of paintings for the aforementioned
                              commission. I'm continuing with posting work that is in process.
                              This is a little past 'block-in' stage, but still needs quite a bit of colour,
                              tone adjustment. I haven't fully dealt with temperature issues, and
                              detail finishes. But, I'm pleased with present composition. This is
                              from Twillinggate, Nfld. trip a few years back with McNeice buddies!

                               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:
                       , not the one posted here!
