I was asked to depict, vast distances, tall sky and liberation ... with a desert type theme... Uncluttered Space and Liberated Soul, both 48"x36" acrylic on canvas are the outcome. The latter has specific relevance for the client! 

This guy was so fascinated by the process of watching Liberated Soul take shape, I wanted him to have a similiar work.

Exhibition - Denison, Texas October 2014

Share on Facebook

Every artist, despite a successful sales record, reaches a point where local/obvious avenues have been explored and sales come from word of mouth or customer referrals.

Proactive marketing requires an enormous effort … especially for a mind that prefers to create.  In this context, I am deeply grateful, if not overwhelmed, at the consideration of a Dallas businessman who previously purchased several of my paintings. I was thrilled to learn that he had arranged an exhibition of my work at the Mary Karam Gallery in Denison Texas

I am particularly delighted that my work is hanging in Denison TX - - A town that has become a disitinct cultural/arts/innovation destination in the U.S.      

Cantine Exhibition - August 2014

Share on Facebook

A chance conversation in one of my all-time favourite Toronto restaurants, Cantine, brought an invitation to hang a selection of paintings during the month of August!

If you are in the Avenue/Davenport road area pop in for a delicious snack/meal and check out my work… I was quite pleased at how well the venue shows the 12 pieces on display…

New Commission: April 2014

Share on Facebook

Agonized over this one ..... The client wanted bright blues, deep pinks and a foreground that picked up colors in her decor... It also had to add an an illusion of depth in the room .... To get unstuck, I called and asked her " Decscribe the picture you have in your mind"... This is my interpretation... I was delighted and relieved to see her hang the piece immediately ...

 

The 1st photograph, taken at an angle, best illustrates how the painting is viewed in the room... 

Blue River at Night - Commission January 2014

Share on Facebook

A Chicago couple, with a beautifully decorated new home, wanted a painting that would blend with their color scheme of blues, greys and sand colors. "It must pop as well as bring a suggestionof interest/mystery ..."  

No matter how I varied the attempts to execute my own vison, the piece kept returning to what it is... I was delighted they approved! 

Clearly my sub-concious prevailed over my concious will!

Aqua Wreck - Latest Commission

Share on Facebook

This client asked for a soft, yet bright seascape... Aqua Wreck 40x24  - Acrylic/Multi-media on canvas. I could not help adding another bit of rusted metal, making this yet another in my ongoing Wreck Series.... I draw such comfort from reminders that nature will eventually reclaim even the worst polliution/damage we inflict on the environment...
