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.
