This piece , a 5 o’clock shadow variation, 24x24” is one of three pieces available tonight at the Georgian Bay Centre for the Arts gala. @georgianbayarts has been an amazing undertaking that’s pretty much happened on the same timeline as the pandemic .

They’ve taken an old bingo hall in downtown Owen Sound and made it a creative centre with classes and studios galore despite being told by government bureaucrats at their beginning that they really should just close for two years.

I think there are still some tickets available. It’s definitely worth checking this fabulous place out !

This piece is up @diannawittegallery and in their shop of small pieces. It’s from my forest interiors series , I’ve been really enjoying the play of line and light and colours as I work through these ideas. I enjoy the way no matter large or small these pieces transport you to a different space.

Another ‘electric forest’ thanks @alvarez.francisco1 for the title suggestion . It’s in the continuing exploration of forest interiors.

Like the rest of the series it’s attempting to capture an instance in time through interpretation of colour and line that works as a vehicle to engage the imagination and transport the viewer to a much larger space beyond the confines of the painting.

This ones 30x40” and is shockingly devoid of pink !

I’ve been playing around with this arrangement of zinnias with a few nasturtium that I picked from my garden, put in a vase that I then put in my bike pannier. The flowers got a little squashed on their journey but there’s something about their exuberance that speaks to me of summer .

Playing around with colour and format here . I give you one version , I’ll post another later. There may be a 3rd of the mostly dead still life but it’s unclear whether that’ll happen. This square is 30x30”.

Growing these flowers and then painting them and seeing how they evolve on both ends is rather delightful.

Building the next piece , petal by leaf.

What I bring from my allotment garden to my studio definitely impacts whatever I end up making . As does the light levels of the given day and how that changes impacting the clarity of the shadows.

I’ve added tiny bit of kale and arugula added to make it healthier.

Studies in line and form , 5 o’clock shadow variations .

I’m really enjoying the growing, assembling and painting of these pieces . Currently mostly playing with lighter backgrounds, this too will change.

Studio happenings . Lots’a directions , lots’a things in various stages of development.

Come by for a studio visit sometime, I’d love to show you what I’ve been up to. Set up an appointment and come on over. Been awhile since I’ve seen people interacting with my work .
