Welcome

Whenever I finish a new painting or something newsworthy occurs, I will update this site. 

Currently I am also updating the site every Thursday with an image from my personal archive (scroll down.)       * Note - Thursday July 20th I will be away surfing, next Hidden Archive post will be Thurs July 27. *

WHAT'S HAPPENING 

Summer is heating up - and work continues in the studio!

Finished a new painting in the West Coast Series recently. Click here to see this new piece. 

Recently added - a new page to the website for video. Click here to see the first video. It's exciting to combine my painting, music, and video interests, so stay tuned for more videos upcoming!

 

The "Print Page" was recently updated with available sizes and prices for canvas prints in the Sunnyside Series.

 

Finished a new painting in a new series recently: 

- Click here to see the first painting in a new series titled "Deleted Scenes From An Unmade Movie."

 

Working now on several paintings in other series: 

- In the Sunnyside Series (#34) - a long and narrow (18" x 72") view of old cabins along the beach, a classic 

Sunnyside Series view.

Here's a view of the piece in progress.

Work in progress, #34, Sunnyside Series.

 

- Also working on:

- A Lindeman Lake painting - 36" x 48" Lindeman Lake is one of my favourite painting subjects. I've been working on this one for a while.

- In the Whistler/Ski Series - I am reworking the sky in the painting "Black Tusk" (32" x 72") from 2008. Because sometimes that's what happens if they hang around without a home for too long, ha ha! Then this painting will be heading back to Whistler and the Art Junction Gallery.

All these pieces and more will be upcoming in the next few weeks and months. Stay tuned!

IMAGES FROM THE HIDDEN ARCHIVE  

- a weekly post to my homepage. Images will appear on Thursdays and stay for one week only - 

A recent feature on the website - images from my personal collection. These images will include selected sketches from my sketchbooks, drawings, hand made prints, and paintings from my private collection, or other older previously purchased pieces not seen before on this site.

 Today, (Thursday July 13th, 2017) we have another small sketch from back in 1992, when I had a showing of paintings at the Glass Slipper Jazz Club in Vancouver. At the time, I had a chance to hangout with some of the musicians including club owner Roger Baird and pianist Paul Plimley who were featured last week and the week before. Today we have two unnamed musicians on upright bass and electric guitar. I really enjoyed the challenge of sketching the players as they performed.

A new feature on the website was added a while back. Images in the Galleries section can now be made fullscreen. Just click on the image to view them larger. Though this applies to most images, some of the older ones are not able to be made full screen as the original photo quality will not allow this. I'm excited by this new feature as it allows for a much enhanced viewing experience for most of the paintings. On the detailed closeup photos it really gives you a sense of the paintings surface.
