Best Day Ever

Good Bye Pedro and Hello the Loft

It was a super busy weekend, that started with a sad good bye to Pedro. I dropped him off at Pepe Gringo's (a local restaurant in Squamish that currently has my work on display). Lucky for me, I have already sold a few pieces at Pepe's and they were in need of some more work. I wasn't sure about selling Pedro as I love him so much, but I thought he would be a fantastic fit for the venue.

My family and I also delivered some work to The Loft, a new gallery at Madeira Park (Pender Harbour), on the Sunshine Coast. We certainly enjoyed the ferry over, and the highlight of the day was watching a doe play with his mother. Here is a link to the new gallery,

Opa 12 x 24 Acrylic on canvas

I'm up late packing for my painting demo tomorrow, and I thought I'd give you a sneak peak at another new piece (I could also be avoiding my long to do list....). I love the bright colour background on this one (and he looks even better in person).

Thelma 10x10 Acrylic on canvas

Thelma is just one of the new paintings I will be bringing with me tomorrow to the "Meet the Makers" Event at on The Farm. It should be a great day (and did I mention the new distillery in town is giving out samples).

Studio construction has started!

I'm thrilled to announce that construction on my new studio started last week. It's been fun trying to plan windows and doors - I can't wait to get working in my new space

Perfect start to the weekend

What a fantastic start to the weekend! Unpacking a massive Opus Art Supply order. I needed to stock up as I've booked 8 commissions in the past week. Lucky for me, I think it's going to be very busy few weeks.

Gopher 24 x 24 Acrylic on canvas available at Art Junction, in Function Junction Whistler

I love painting herons. They have such a wacky look to them - they remind me of the "Edward Scissorhands" of the bird world (but with a crazy carnivorous edge).

Turbo 9 x 12 Acrylic on canvas

I've been busy working on some smaller pieces for an upcoming show / live painting demo on November 15th, at on The Farm in Squamish. Its a nice break to work on the smaller pieces, and a great opportunity to experiment. I played around with this one by using a dark magenta background. I love how it seems to make his throat "pop" and I think it looks terrific against the blue.

Jane 10 x 10 Acrylic on Canvas

I'm long over due for painting a cow - and I must say this is one of my favorites. She just flowed as I was painting her and I think she has a wonderful look in her eyes.
