                                            It has been a long time since my last post. Some
                                            technical difficulties, some laziness. I have been
                                            very busy painting and have had several tours and
                                            some shows. I have explored a number of techniques
                                            and subject matters. Sunflowers have popped up
                                            frequently. Aside from the fact that I love sunflowers
                                            and all they represent, I think they're my tribute to
                                            my outstanding painting hero, Vincent van Gogh.
                                            More to come!

                                       Did a series of these ( quite large!) for the last two
                                       tours that I've been on. This one is four feet by two
                                       feet. I belong to a collective of Stouffville artists called AAP.
                                       We experiment quite a bit and use media outside
                                       our comfort zones. I did a version of this in a more
                                       sculptural form with re-cycled art boxes. This
                                       morning our AAP collective hung a show in the Stouffville
                                       Town offices. The show lasts until May 7th.
                                       This piece above will be in the Durham West Studio Tour,
                                       April 21 and 22nd. I'm at site #1 with guest artists Ed Keith,
                                       Cheryl Fulcher, and Gordon Reidt.

                                        Part of my "Iris" series which was originally
                                        motivated by my dedication and deep admiration
                                        for Vincent. About 20 pieces developed.


                                        Been almost a year since my last post. Too busy
                                        painting . This is a 36 x 24 work that didn't really
                                        photograph well but is very eye-catching in real
                                        time.
