Volunteer Ottawa

Glad to contribute one of my paintings for the silent auction at the annual, growing and important Volunteer Ottawa fundraiser. They do incredible work, and volunteering is the heartbeat, the soul of the City of Ottawa.

Late Spring

Had a nice walk with our dogs yesterday… through The Marshes golf course in Kanata. Until it opens it is an excellent place to walk dogs off leash, and our dogs, especially Rocky, our Jack Russell, enjoyed it immensely!

Caribbean life

Just at the Miami Airport after a great week cruising to Key West, Mexico and the Caymans with Nancy. Wonderful week, excellent weather and just spoiled rotten, rotten, rotten. Made some great new friends, too.

Now back to much colder Ottawa and gradual warming trend… and, of course, back to painting.

Merry Christmas

Been a little rough for my family this year as my wife’s mother just passed away today… while a huge change as far as our holiday goes its been an honour to spend time at the nursing home with a wonderful woman who has had huge health troubles after her massive stroke of 5 years ago.

Nellie – a pillar of her community in Wawa, Ontario. A tower of positive energy for her family. she was loved, treasured, and will be missed very much. We love you, Nell!

All best to everyone this Christmas season!

Contact, etc.

Apologies for anyone trying to locate my contact information!… Neither that or my blog or information about myself were appearing for some reason but fixed the problem and seems to be ok now.

Final day of the One of a Kind Show in Toronto, glad to be heading home tomorrow!  Come on down today if you have the time.

Westmount show

Great day at Westmount Gallery in Etobicoke, Ontario last Saturday (I know, this post is really late)! Delighted to talk art with some collectors and other curious parties – and appreciate John and his wife buying my 48 x 48″ painting, “Brook”. Great couple – John, coincidentally, worked with my wife Nancy many years ago, a great experience for her.

Thanks to Judy and my wonderful co-exhibitor, Donald Liardi (amazing sculptures!) for a great experience. Hope the sales continue, the show ends in just one week from now!
