It's been a couple of weeks since the show I had at the McKay
Gallery in Unionville. Thank you to all the staff for their encourage-
ment and help. The crowds were quite big because of the newly
arrived and much needed warm weather. It is a very humbling
and transforming experience. All people who perform or work
in any public forum must feel some sense of exposure. It can
be quite daunting, and for me it is. But, it is also the opportunity
for growth, awareness. It is worth the risk. Again thank you to
Ray and Margaret for their tremendous support, Sue for her
ongoing and most loving encouragement, my wonderful family,
special supporter and long time buddy Joe, and all who came in
and took the time to look and critique.
This painting is the complete version of my earlier little tease.

Day four of show has ended, have met lots of
wonderful people. Lots of kind artists. And
very loyal friends. I always, always appreciate
the effort friends take to support me, the arts.
God bless you! This painting has garnered lots
of attention. A bit of a new style. Having fun,
which makes it worth while!

I've done something a little different here. This is a small section
of a bigger painting appearing in this week's show. It's kind of
a tease. Those who live nearby, will have to come by to see how
it fits in the bigger picture. For those who can't come, I'll post
the entire painting after the show. Come take a look!

About two summers ago, Sue and I were walking
on Main Street, Unionville, a bright, sunny day
with lots of shadow patterns. What attracts a painter
more? This was a demo for a class I was teaching
about limited colour palettes and neutral and
semi-neutral mixes. Not my usual palette, but lots
of fun. This house is not far from the McKay.
If you're walking along Main Street, drop in.
As mentioned yesterday, I have an upcoming show
at the McKay Gallery in Unionville. I will be there
all five days. This is one of the paintings which I have
been experimenting with the past little while. Ray
McNeice and Margaret Grandison, two very accomplished
local artists will be hanging my show. They have
a spectacular vision and sense of design. Thank you
Margaret and Ray!

If anyone is still following this blog, thank you.
It's been quite a while since my last post. But,
I haven't been sitting on my hands. Since my last
post, we have weathered an ice storm, been to
Puerta Vallarta, and Jamaica. And, I have been
teaching classes and workshops for all ages.
As I have a show next week at the McKay in
Unionville, I finally completed 15 new works.
Just no time to blog, sorry. This one is in the
show. Hope you can come if you live nearby!
