Facebook post from my awesome dealer.

Saturday night is the opening reception for Artworld Fine Art's first major exhibit in our new gallery "East Meets West". I met two of the exhibting artists Rick Taylor and Wei Yan when I put out an artist call for donations to a silent auction charity event I was hosting for my good friend Spider Jones' and his Believe to Achieve Foundation - both Rick and Wei - donated pieces. It has been 4 years since that chance meeting - Rick has become one of the galleries top selling painters and Wei has found a place with his beautiful Traditional Chinese landscpe paintings in our new gallery space. All because of the brillance and generosity of both of these painters - good fortune has been bestowed on all of us. I hope you can join us - David Shepherd and Mark Thurman will also be exhibiting - it all starts at 6:30 - RSVP for more details

Acrylic Bootcamp Course, Final Lesson

Today I taught my last lesson in the five week course, "Acrylic Bootcamp." I did a demo which I later mucked around on.  To show the students a painting where everything is "right," I used one of the John Leonard paintings from my collection.

Arabella Contest Winner

Congratulations to my good pal, John Stuart Pryce for his win in the Arabella Canadian Landscape Contest.  John's "Sundance" oil won best tranquil Canadian landscape. I have four of John's paintings in my personal collection.  Very affordable prices for such a significant Canadian landscape painter.

Show this Saturday.


It should be a very interesting evening for art lovers and artists alike.  All four painters will be discussing their process. Many of you have not yet seen the amazing new gallery space at Kipling and Evans.

The gallery would appreciate an RSVP for catering etc - by no later than Thursday afternoon.

Hope to see you.
