I was delighted to deliver these 3 pieces to the newly renovated home of a young family this week!  Fall Forest is the largest work... 60"x40", Sunset Crag 40"x30" is a vibrant piece that occupies a dramatic position at the top of the staircase, while Blue Highland 30"x40" is in soft blues and golds that the client wanted for the master bedroom,

All pieces are a mix of acrylic paint, plaster and natural material.

Latest Commissions: December 2014

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.

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...

Recent Commission

A client commissioned Aqua Sea in the Mist... 30"x30" (sold) ... textured foreground on gallery canvas... I need to invest in a decent camera... Anything with white paint or the misty effect I love to create, just doesnt translate well colorwise... 

The same client also purchased the two smaller pieces 24"x18' ... Wreck at Sea I & II  (sold)

My latest large canvas ... These were not the colors I originally intended... yet try as I may... the piece kept coming back to this palette... Strange!
