                                      The solo exhibition is about to close this coming
                                      weekend. My deep thanks to Pumphouse Art Centre
                                      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
                                      creativity!!!

                                              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!
