Dear Friends, January 4, 2018 One of the things I find most interesting is to the experience of capturing a physical bricks and mortar building in a painting for a client. For this person has a story to tell. Each time he/she views the final painting, these memories associated with the bricks, pavement or landscape illicits this deep connection.
Dear Friends, August 10, 2017 This was our dog Alue. I didn't post anything about her passing in April as I was too upset and my thoughts hadn't set in about our loss. We put her down due to a mass of cancer in her stomach. For a beagle, this is a death sentence as ALL they want to do with their noses is sniff out the next morsel and look for food to eat.
Dear Friends, This is the time of year when you automatically start to reflect on the past year and plan for the new year. I can't complain about 2016 in terms of art growth. When I reflect on the events of the year, it amazes me how my "word of the year" actually ends of matching my art-making process. If you recall, my word this year is "Expansion". I have expanded my reputation of being a Medicine Hat artist, but didn't achieve my goal of gallery representation or a public gallery show outside of Medicine Hat. So, guess what I'll be working on this year?
