    Sometimes it’s nice just to work on a few small pieces. These pieces are approximately 5 x 7 in and are done on rag paper. They are on display at the House of Falconer in Picton, ON. I have plans for some new panel works in oil which I can’t wait to begin. But, we have a lot on our plate with Spark Box Studio right now which is taking me away from painting. Lucky for me, even though I really want to start this new series of paintings,¬†everything I do with Spark Box Studio is still creative and art related.  


    Finally finished the last two commissioned abstract watercolour paintings from the Indiegogo campaign. This piece is titled Spotlight and was finished over the holidays. I have now started working on a 4 x 5 ft oil painting and am hoping I can bring some of the concentrated mark making I have been doing in these watercolours into the larger oil paintings.¬† I also want the energy and flow of these small watercolours to be present in the oil paintings. Looking back on some of the older oil paintings I have done the elements seem to hover statically in the space and lack the interaction these marks have.

    I have been working on some new abstract sketches where I am working on creating spaces that have more of a three dimensional environment. This new piece is for sale on etsy here: Everyman Winner.

    The two new paintings are taking on a new composition which I like.

      The sun outside inspires light and airy painting inside. Working on all of the pieces for the indie go go campaign perks has been more challenging that I imagined. I want to make sure all the works are great! Here is one of the paintings I made for one of the awesome contributors. This piece is called Up or Down?
