A couple more new ones.

"G.P. in the Woods," acrylic 12x16.
A picture of my friend, Giuseppe Pivetta, painting along the road leading to Memquist Lodge. Giuseppe, or "Joe" is one of my favourite artists and the most dedicated plein air painter I have ever known. Also a super nice man.

Eagle Lake

"Eagle Lake Birch Trees," acrylic, 12x16.
One of those friendly, uncomplicated little pictures I so enjoy painting.
A good example of how local colour radically changes and becomes richer at the twilight hour.

Ragged Twilight, 30x36

Boat Show, Artworld of Sherway

"Boats," Artworld of Sherway.

Always a major rush to go into Artworld and see work I have just delivered. When I see the pictures framed, lit and labelled, it's like they were painted by another artist, and one who is a better painter than I am.
Donna and her posse really know their stuff.
The show is up until the end of the month.

Masters Series #17


This series of paintings is predicated on the notion of taking a favourite masterpiece and breaking it down into an abstract composition. In this case, Sir Peter Paul Reubens' "The Hippopotamus and Crocodile Hunt."
