New piece underway. I like the textures and colours so far ... plenty of time to screw up fingers. No guts no glory or something.

This is another piece generated from my kayaking around Toronto (amongst other places) this past summer and photographing and sketching from the kayak. Good times . This piece is 18x18”

I’ve pulled this out at the studio and have been enjoying the space and colours. It’s from a couple of years ago when I think I might have had a better idea of what day of the week it is .

Apparently it’s usually thiserday or thaterday or something. Yesterday I had myself convinced it was Wednesday, the one day a week I have someplace to be ... virtually at least. (Bridge) strange days !

This piece from my winter solstice series is called pale shadows and is 36x36”

Late Sunday evening painting session accompanied by an #andersoncraftales .

Falling behind on laundry and household chores. I’m pretty sure they’ll be there later for now I’m playing hooky at the studio for a bit longer.

Working on some little pieces while the bigger ones continue to refuse to cooperate.

Usually I have the reverse problem , I find the larger ones easier than the smaller ones. Is mercury in retrograde or something? I have no idea. How long could it be in retrograde... too bad we can use it as excuse for all sorts of craziness.

10% of any sales made through my website until the end of the lockdown will be donated towards mental health charities.

Working on some new ‘art for groceries’ pieces as a way of sorting through some brain to paper translation hiccups.

Boldly exploring new frontiers or practicing my ‘if you’re not screwing up your not really trying’ motto maybe . Whatever it is these pieces will go on my website. Any sales from my website these days have me donating 10% of the proceeds of those sales towards mental health charities . I’ll be doing that through the length of the lockdown.

Be kind to each other please . We’ll get through this slog together!!

I reworked this piece from a couple of years ago. It’s a bit of an antidote to this grey, dreary, chilly morning. It’s also a reaction to my inbox being flooded with seed catalogs.

Additionally it’s supposed to remind me to get my ass down to my allotment garden and spread my straw when the weather warms up a bit . I had delayed because I was dreaming of acquiring more compost to spread on top .... sigh . They’ll be much disappointment if I can share my heirloom Ontario garlic this summer. (It’s 12x16”).

Happy new year! Here’s one of my favourite pieces from last year.

My year ended with a blow out, tire in a parking lot, seemed fitting somehow. Feeling thankful and cautious optimism for the new year. Thank you for your virtual support, I greatly appreciate it. Stay well in heart, body and mind xo

I hope you all have some sort of fanciful adventure adventure of the spirit this bizarre holiday break. My memories of Christmas Eve include frantic last minute shoppers at my family’s record store and one memorable snowstorm that had us stuck in a snowdrift as we made our way home and my brother, father and I and having to rely on the kindness of strangers to put us up overnight.

May you find some rest, some kindness and gratitude in this crazy time and may we all remember to be kind to strangers .

I was trying to think of something to post for the winter solstice, alas it was a dreary day . So I’m posting this piece as a reminder of when days are much longer and warmer. I’m looking forward to the days getting longer again . It’s one of the reasons I always look forward to the winter solstice.

This piece is one of my homegrown still life’s. It’s 16x18”

Wishing you a fanciful Saturday. I’ve interpreted one of my friend’s favourite spots filtered through a tropical lens . I credit the @kamapigments fluorescent pink paint . It’s a new piece from my unplugged series that’s 30x40”

This piece , backcountry variation 1, 30x30 made its way to @diannawittegallery yesterday. I brought it and two other pieces to the gallery yesterday and was struck by how lovely their window exhibition looked . My attempts to take a photo were thwarted by Dianna coming to the door to accept the pieces and the moment passed . If you’re in #Leslieville swing by the gallery and check it out . It’ll be worth it . If you don’t like it , at least you’ll have gotten outside .
