Sausalito Art Festival

September 7th, 2012

I'm writing this in chilly San Francisco. I'm here visiting my son and I planned the visit so I could take in the Sausalito Art Festival. It's rated as one of the top art fairs in North America and so I was really excited to get there and be impr... 

Riverdale Art Walk This Weekend June 1 & 2 is the Riverdale Art Walk or RAW. I will be in the RAW, sounds a bit naughty doesn't it, and will be showing my "Ladies" as well as other printmaking works. I'm hoping for a nice weekend that is nothing l... 

For the second year running one of my paintings has been chosen as the program cover for a series of classical concerts to be held in a beautiful castle in the Netherlands. This year Cubist Play is the image chosen. The Virenze Concerts take place... 

This week I went to a very fancy art opening. It had everything going for it, nice art, great food, ample free wine and a very personable artist who mingled and made everyone feel very welcome. It was a very professionally done event. The turnout w... 

Posies - New Floral Works

April 27th, 2012

Back a few weeks ago I decided to work on some color studies and chose florals as the basis for this study. Florals are something I haven't painted in years but they were ideal for my intention of doing paintings in a variety of different colors, ma... 

I'm packing up today ready for a big printmaking demo to the printmaking students at St Lawrence College in Brockville, Ontario. It appears that there will be more than 30 participants. I'm showing how I create intaglio collagraph prints. You can rea... 

5 Unusual Reasons to Buy Art

October 25th, 2011

Some 22 years back I was on my way to my weekly sculpture class in Wellington, NZ when from the car window I saw a painting in the front window of a local Gallery. It was a large, free flowing and colourful work by a NZ painter Shona McFarlane who h... 

Like many artists I am still trying to find my way with my blog and one thing that I wonder about is am I writing it for the right people. Who do I want to read my blog and what is its purpose?  Many art blogs seem to be mo... 

Two weeks ago I exhibited at the Lions Fine Art Show and Sale at the Waterfront Festival in Cobourg, Ontario. I love this show because it's in a beautiful setting right on the beach. I was showing both printmaking and non representational paintin... 

Every now and then I feel creatively a bit lost. I find it hard to get inspired and this means it's harder to get motivated to start working. It's interesting that during these times we say that we have lost our "creative spirit" and that we want t... 

Over the last few years I have heard a lot of comments about reproduction prints of artwork devaluing the original paintings. "Why would you want to buy a painting that has a had lots of reproductions made of it?" is the cry, and "I wouldn't want to... 

Last Friday night I gave a talk to an art society group about my art and printmaking. In the first half I talked about my painting process and showed some photographs. I set up the pictures in Power Point and connected to their projector. The colo... 

After spending quite a lot of time looking at art and thinking about what I really like ... which ended up being art with abstracted figures and faces in it ... I have gone off and started a series of non representational works. I decided to work i... 

Iíve been slow on the updates to my blog because itís taken me some time to get back into gear after being away for so long. Iíve found it really hard to pick up where I left off however I think I am now getting back on track again. To finish off ...

Toilet Art

April 12th, 2009

My art is in the toilet! This is not a depressing thing. Actually I feel quite happy about it as where else do people have a few moments alone and time to actually look at art without any distractions. The painting I am talking about is a very vibr...
