DP World Vancouver

It’s true, at the Northern end of Vancouver’s Main street lies a treasure trove.  Throughout 2013 I thought that it must be the 6 year old boy who lives within me who compels me to squander precious morning hours on the Main street overpass until, one rainy morning, I bumped into a client on my […]

Munch vs JP Morgan

Munch’s “The Scream” sold for $119 922 500 on 2 May 2012. JP Morgan lost $2 billion on 10 May 2012.

Monday Afternoon. Oil on canvas. 48″ x 24″ Steven Pressfield talks of the resistance in the War of Art and after listening to an interview with him, I was able to recognize that the laziness I was feeling in the run up to this painting, was potentially “the Resistance”.
