Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition

My next big event is participating in the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition (TOAE). I will be showing landscape painting that investigates climate change. Unpredictable weather and celestial omens in these paintings signal changes in the environment through strong colour, movement and shape. The TOAE runs July 14(10-7), 15(10-7) and 16(10-5) in Nathan Philips Square in downtown Toronto. See www.torontooutdoor.art for more information. I look forward to seeing old and new friends at my booth in the Plaza, Booth 60.

Yukon paintings

Ever since a trip visiting part of the Yukon I have been working on a series of paintings based on all the photos I took.  It was a whirlwind trip but it left indelible memories.  We were fortunate to be there in September during colour change and more fortunate that the weather was good!  I started with some literal paintings and then progressed to abstraction and the discovery is continuting..I have a goal to do 12 paintings.   Here are a few….
