Been a busy time, and I get to the studio in Alton Mill as much as possible. When it actually isn't possible, I cram in some painting time in my home studio, sometimes painting till very late at night.
I will be in the Colour and Form Society show next month on Pottery Road and will tell you more of that another time, but the latest bit of news is that my painting "The Wetlands" was selected by jury for the Federation of Canadian Artists International show. The Federation has been around since 1941, and exhibits in various galleries, but this particular show is June 1st to August 31st on line. They sell a lot of work from this show, and use their commission to make bursaries for deserving up and coming artists. :)
Just completed a large painting titled "Mackerel Sky", in reference to to the cloud formations that appear as "ribbing". They form in such a manner when there is unsettled weather, and the maritimers have a saying that goes with it.

This particular scene is from Beach Meadows (near Liverpool) Nova Scotia. In the background you can see a pair of Loons that frequent the area. The painting is being taken by a private collector, but giclee prints will be available soon.
The painting from Vancouver Island is now my primary piece for working on, and will be nearing completion soon, then offered for sale.
Hope you come visit me in the studio. :)
