Westmount Gallery Show, October 13th

Getting ready for my show at the Westmount Gallery, starting this Saturday in the west end of Toronto! I’m bringing down a number of brand new paintings, abstract and figures.

I’ll be at the gallery in person from 11-2pm… hope to see you there!

The show also features fabulous sculptor Donald Liardi.



cottage life

Great day up at the cottage in Quebec, dinner later with buddies John and Loretta… enjoying the view from the gazebo up the mountain. 

Nice to have power, both here and back in Ottawa, where some viscious tornadoes did huge damage and left many wihout hydro. Hope it gets fixed up soon!

Wonderful show

Great opening Friday July 20th in Wellington!… at the Sybil Frank Gallery in Wellington. Craig put on a great show, the Bubble Tea flowed and the paintings sold. Nancy and I are really enjoying ourselves here in the county and look forward to another excellent day of tasting wine, cheese and ciders in this beautiful area.

Our B & B, Viking Haus, is a bit of a drive from Wellington but stunningly beautiful, and our hosts, Mark and Daniela, are amazing… what a weekend.

Sybil Frank Gallery show, July 20-22nd

Heading down the Prince Edward County tomorrow with new paintings for Craig at the Sybil Frank Gallery in beautiful Wellington, right on the lake.

Unfortunately my e-mail has been down for almost a day! I hope to have the situation fixed shortly but what an incredible pain. My web host changed servers to the Cloud, and… 

Anyhow, hope to see you there this Friday night 5-9pm, 305 Main Street, Wellington!


Thanks for a great show

So many thanks to the many of you who stopped by my booth at the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair this past weekend! Sale were great and to those who purchased from me, my humble thanks and gratitude. I hope you enjoy your paintings for many years to come.

Wall Space “The Valley” Opening

Today is the day for my opening for the show The Valley at Wall Space Gallery in Ottawa! The most beautiful (in my humble opinion) gallery in the city is a fantastic place to showcase some of my new work and I’m looking forward to it! 358 Richmond Road in Westboro… everyone is cordially invited.  https://www.wallspacegallery.ca/

Riverdale show

Big thanks to all who came by the Riverdale Art Walk this past weekend! And a special thanks to those who bought paintings… I’m always grateful to you all, and lucky to do what I do!

Riverkeepers Gala 2018

Glad to participate in another wonderful evening at the Riverkeepers Gala… another beautiful venue, right on the Ottawa River at 100 Sussex. My painting, through Wall Space Gallery, “Hidden Beach” was donated and hopefully made some extra dollars for the ongoing cleanup of our beautiful Ottawa River (over family cottage is on the river, northwest of Ottawa in Quebec).

Volunteer Ottawa

Great night at Volunteer Ottawa last night!… This is an annual gala celebrating volunteers who make a huge difference by doing lots of good things for the community in Ottawa, and I was happy to donate a painting, River View, which was raffled off – all for a great cause.

As it happens, my wife is the Chairperson for Volunteer Ottawa and Nancy made a great speech, with Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson in attendance (sitting at our table). Wish I’d had gotten His Worship to pose for a photo with me but he had to fly shortly after his excellent speech.


Open Studio

I’ve decided that for the time being, I’m going to forgo my annual Open Studio at my home in Ottawa… it’s been a good run but I have too many other things going on this late spring and early summer. I don’t want to spread myself too thin, and I may still want to get out and golf once in a while!
