Small Works for end of year shows

been working small the last few months
Getting ready for end of year shows at Artsolutely, the Vernon community arts centre's fund raising art sale, and the Lake Country Art Gallery's Under 100 exhibition and fund raising art sale! Great places to get one-of-a-kind original xmas gifts!

Here are a couple examples of what I've been doing when I didn't answer that phone call.

Dark Predator Pool is acrylic on canvas measuring 8x10 inches, thus 'under 100' square inches in size!

Not sure the title of the second one yet... Any suggestions?

The third pic was a lot of fun to do and I think it looks fun! It's upside down tho... must have held phone the wrong way when taken.

Come out to the sales and have fun looking at all the incredible Art! Will try to have some pieces for Penticton Art gallery too, in December, hope to see you in Vernon, Lake Country, or Penticton!

Twins Begin Journey

Coincidental to the travelling roadside garbage, the twins are also setting out on a journey - destination unknown. The story of discovery will unfold for the artist as well as the characters. This side of my current work is more intuitive. I don't know where the twins are going, what or who they will encounter. Visit the okanagan artists website for more drawings as they develop.

Drawing from the car

Spent a few hours gesturing pencil drawings from the car. An early start to the season for sure - would have been too cold to draw outside, but maybe the results would have been interesting too. The North Okanagan sky from the Commonage was incredible and a few good drawings happened before long.

The intense red here is no exaggeration! It was really this red, check out more on the web: Okanagan Artists Drawings.

The webpage shows a time-lapse series as the red colours came up and disappeared. In contrast to that stunning glow, my perception of the ground seems to have changed with the differences in light.

New Roadside Trash Blog

Welcoming all to participate with comments, a new blog has started with the purpose of non-judgemental education surrounding roadside trash. Ultimately, if we take part as consumers, some of our trash will inevitably end up scattered around the region, maybe even in the lakes!

check it out, leave a comment. If interested to work on the okanagan trash blog in partnership, please contact through:

SKIES and PEOPLE 1, Intervention Evolving

A series I've continued to work on over the past few months,inspired by the Commonage, the image is a screen capture from my reformed local history series 'SKIES and PEOPLE 1'. Text throughout the images of this series is deliberately cut off drawing the viewer in to particpate with the reformation. The character interaction describes the ability and dignity of all things in the context of the artist/patron/administration-owned hierarchy within the gallery experience. As the outsider, the people depicted in images choose their own destiny and belonging inside the Gallery.
