I’m Still Dreaming of Flight 20″ x 60″ encuastic, paper and oil on panel SOLD

I’m Still Dreaming of Flight” is a just‐completed commissioned painting. The clients knew they wanted a piece 20″ x 60″, and when they visited my studio, spotted my very red painting “Map 30” — which inspired them to become as excited about red as I have been lately. So I very happily indulged their request, with this quite red painting that continues to explore my favourite themes of journeying, navigation, maps and birds.

Best in Show!!

Me and “Navigation/Starlings & Stars”, which was awarded Best in Show at the OSA’s 139th Annual Open Juried Exhibition, “Darkness & Light”

I was absolutely thrilled to attend the reception of the Ontario Society of Artists 139th Annual Open Juried Exhibition at the John B. Aird Gallery last night, to learn my painting “Navigation/starlings & stars” (posted January 31) had been awarded Best in Show! This is the OSA’s 139th open juried show, and the title and theme of the show is “Darkness and Light”. With 300 some images to jury, I was delighted enough to have been one of the 39 artists selected.… but to have my work chosen as Best in Show…?! Well, I’m still reeling!
