statement

The way we interact with our environment influences the way we see things and frame the things we see. We take insubstantial, fragmented images and fill them out to make complete narratives.

It is this tension between the negative space, what is withheld from the frame of the painting and what is suggested that engages the viewer in a conversation with my work. I am showing part of a picture or world which exists beyond the realm of the canvas in the mind of the viewer. This conversation between the viewer and the painting, between description and abstraction is the most vital element of my painting.

I’m posting this painting again because I like it bunches and because I named if after my friends bar , the Walton . @thewalton_to . It achieved its name because Alison did a series of paintings that had similar colours based on (I found out after the name was attached) an old metal can of foot powder that contained these colours . The painting can be found @diannawittegallery , the bar , sadly is only available in memory. So many good times there . It’s a victim of these crazy days we’re living through. Sunny and Alison are off to BC and new adventures. #goodtimes #oldfriends #floralpainting #stilllife #oilpainting ...

One where I dropped off the work and another where we discussed artistic challenges during a pandemic amongst other things . Both can be accessed through their Instagram page . #oilpainting #abstractlandscape #fineart #contemporarypainting #contemporarylandscape ...

Here’s another #artistsupportpledge pieces . I haven’t been doing or posting them much lately because I’ve been so busy with other irons in the fire but I still think it’s a terrific idea. The arts have been hard hit by this pandemic amongst other segments of the economy. I call this work ‘art for groceries’ , out of every $2000. Of work I sell I buy $400. Worth of other artists work . I’ve been fortunate enough to buy other artists work from all over within this initiative. This piece is 6x6” and $185. Including shipping in Canada . ...
