Nope, I did not stop making art
just a break to
flow with the world
to create with fabric
with my hands
always my hands
all of me
a break, a breath
the studio is set up differently
with a separate room
for resin coating
and really tiny
Canvas Gallery, my longest standing gallery has just received 4 new pieces from me. They wrote a lovely post on their blog about it. Here are the images a bit larger:
Aspire: 11" x 48"
"Ethereal Spheres" size: 26" x 72"
"Source 1" 30" x 30"
"Source 2" 30" x30"
Source 1 & 2 can be combined into a diptych that can be displayed in different ways. I regard the viewer as the final component in the creation of my work, and I have been striving to create work that allows the viewer to partake in this process through a choice in displaying the work. My abstracts provide very different emotional responses depending on the direction that they are hung. They can also be changed around and provide an interactive play between the viewer and the piece.
most of the works
out in the world
finders of their permanent
The viewer, the purchaser
the final piece
of completion in the
to my feelings
changing my intent
are what matters
will make my seekers
be loved, accepted, wanted, acquired
To enable me to keep
in the flow.
When the end is here
my pieces will continue
alive. here. bringing joy. existing. loved.

On my iPod:
Fall of Giants (I did not like this the way I liked Pillars of the Earth),
The Dark River
The Golden City
There are another two new galleries that now carry my work:
Galerie D'Art Internationale in Quebec City
Galerie d'Art Solange Lebel in Drummond, Quebec.
As promised, some of the finished paintings incorporating the elements in Post # 31
A new style of work, a whimsical feel, an altered return and yet a newly developed series of pieces. Another part of me laid bare to the world.
In 2009, there was some playing at the studio
Old photographs, reworked with sandpaper, paints, fun, process. Inspiration for new direction of work, or simply having fun and nothing creatively is ever wasted. Everything leads to something. What–time will tell-or show-or sneakily insert into other pieces…. stay on your toes, you do not know what you might see.
Details have been added to some of the boats. This is the stage where things slow down. A lot. Each piece of work is studied, reflected upon, pondered about.
11" x 14" Boat. Needs signature and resin coating. Title.
24" x 24" piece. I added the dots just before leaving the studio. It will receive more attention tomorrow when I'm back at the studio. There are faint "pirate map" paths on the background. An element I like immensely.
Below, a sample of how the piece looks before painting the details.
24" x 24" boat piece.
Added swimmers and under-painting of plants.
Tomorrow I will finish this piece if it is ready for finishing. I let each tell me when it feels that it is finished.
