30 years. Run that over your tongue and feel the way it first pushes against the back of your teeth, then drops down to the base of your mouth only to follow with a final curl to where it started. Feel it roll over your tongue, this is what success feels like and TED talks […]

Another Fantastic Colourful Adventure Also Fondly Conversed About as the Associate of the Federation of Canadian Artists or just AFCA. Why the rambles? On Sunday 9 March 2014 I was awarded my AFCA along with 14 other established artists at the Federation of Canadian Artists. Receiving the Associate level of membership is recognition by senior […]
“Tackling tomorrow” Oil on canvas. 30″ x 48″ has entered into the 4th stage of her life cycle with her introduction to the world via Granville Island Public Market. I love working away and looking up only to see her. The movement in the brushstrokes, the resonating contrasts and those very sexy areas of […]
Video from inside the studio, building on the foundation of the first 20 minutes. The pace slows a little but the concentration remains constant as the eye continues to race over the surface of the painting constantly seeking and evaluating. That which is good stays and that which holds no value, not even as an […]
Day Zero of the January painting, the first 20 minutes as told in 2 minutes. Part of the January 2014 explorations. Understanding how to share the story of the painting, what that story is and also to share the simple stuff that happens in the studio. I still do not comprehend what the story is […]
The year is off to a good start and the January painting is underway. Yesterday was the first day of actually putting pigment onto canvas after 2 weeks of planning the format, sourcing the stretcher bars, stretching and re-stretching the canvas (the first canvas tore) and a couple of days of priming. The January painting […]

Unknown painting on easel Unknown painting on easel is literally an unknown painting. We are in the place where she may or may not come to life and honestly at the moment I am loosing confidence. There are times during the painting process when a painting takes on a life of its own and pushes […]

Sam’s collection and a big boy’s room painting. Sam and his mother were in the process of metamorphosing his bedroom into that of a big boy’s room and with this came the consideration of what would adorn his walls. They had hoped to find me during their visit to the Granville Island Public Market, and the […]
The single white stroke on the front cyclist’s back and the little dashes which magically conjure the rear cyclist’s helmet, epitomize the reason I paint. These strokes are the culmination of a thousand previous strokes and are so simple that it would have been easy to miss them while painting. It is becoming increasingly clear […]
