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!

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.
