WHAT'S HAPPENING 

Spring is springing - and things are heating up in the studio!

- Work in progress - a painting in a new series "The Downtown Series", inspired by my hometown of Chilliwack BC.

 

Work in progress "#1, Downtown Series, Going to work, District 1881", acrylic on canvas, 30" x 48"

This one still has a long ways to go and is mostly an underpainting at this point.

Painting the human made environment is a bit of a departure for me as I take my inspiration from the natural world.

That's why I chose this composition, as it has trees that figure prominently. I like the nature/urban juxtaposition. 

 

- Recently finished:

new painting in the Sunnyside Series. This one is unlike any other in the series. 

 

"Still Learning" An exercise in actualization.

 

"The Call, #3, Deleted Scenes From An Unmade Movie" series, acrylic on canvas, 40" x 30".

It's been loaded to both the "Deleted Scenes From An Unmade Movie" gallery and the "Gallery of Available Paintings", for full screen viewing.

   

 

- Currently working on several other new paintings so stay tuned for updates.

 

- Suggestion for a Sunnyside Series print triptych - #36, #11, and #18. Images combined - 2ft x 6ft.

 

Just printed #18 (on the right) for the first time and put it together with #36 & #11 and thought they'd make a great triptych suggestion.
