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.


Opposites. Together / separate makes my heart happy. Forest interiors revisited. 16x16” an ever evolving theme. #

Looking through old photos and found some images from a show I had @bugeramathesongallery in 2014. Wow , how time flies. ...

One week later and plenty of sore muscles later it’s gone and ready to start the rebuild.

I’ve discovered plenty of sore muscles, and have become dear to the ladies at the dump and sir to the cashier at home hardware. Confusion everywhere. Excited to have it up and having a workplace.

Gone but not forgotten. November 11th , I’m thankful for those who made such sacrifices for our freedom.

The story these days is one of deconstruction and rebirth. In sheds/workshops/studios.

No windows , no insulation, heat and a low ceiling height were too many strikes against the old structure. Wasn’t in my immediate plans but that’s just the way it is.

Race to beat the winter . Ready set go…. More photos to come as I remember.

Still some time left to enter the draw for this 6x6 inch piece. Send a charitable donation receipt screenshot to a humanitarian organization and you’re in . You’ve raised a few hundred dollars so far . The time change gives you another hour for entry… whoop whoop ! The draw is tomorrow evening. (Eastern standard time) I’ll send the winner the Let’s help each other out. So many people are in such dire straits.

You people did a terrific job! Over $500. Raised for humanitarian needs. ❤️❤️❤️

Here is Technicolor dreams variation 21. 24x24” . I’ve taken familiar landscape and interpreted them through a fanciful imaginary filter with both colour and technique.
