A sunny day recollection on a snowy day . A canoe trip painting. 40x48”. ................................................................................................I’ve been listening to Dan Carlin’s ‘hardcore history’ , it seems a fitting reminder on this day when we are thankful of the sacrifices of those who fight and fought for our freedom. ...

A little piece . 10x10 inches . I use them to try out ideas and because I like the page I follow @enormoustinyart . It got me rethinking small scale work . This piece along with a number of other little ones I’ve been doing are strong pieces in their own right which pleases me . Now for something bigger ... #torontoart #smallart #newwork #abstractlandscape ...

Here’s another one of these purpose grown still life’s . I was asked recently why I have them painted in front of paneling . The answer is that , when I’ve been painting and drawing them in my studio, they are in front of panels. I’ve liked that . It’s leading to more experiments that way . Have I mentioned there’s an electrical outlet too . Stay tuned , it’ll soon be evident too . #contemporaryart #contemporarypainter #stilllife #artcollecting #flowers ...

Here’s another one of the new still life’s. I like the idea of this one where the initial painting is overlayed with a little line painting suggesting a slight wilt after some time in the vase . #stilllife #colour #newwork #oilpainting ...

And now back to the other series. Here’s another canoe sketch, I’m thinking of calling the series unplugged. This ones little. 10x10 inches . It’ll become something different when larger and that’s the way it should be ! #nofliter #wetpaint #newwork #study #canoe #oilpainting ...

The studio today . I could say that it’s not usually so chaotic but I’d be lying. The more saturated background colours came about because I was playing around with sketches on deeper colours and I liked it . #nofilter #brightcolours #abstractlandscape #wip ...
