I'm back! I've been sidelined with a gimpy shoulder/neck that has made sitting at a computer for more than five minutes at a stretch excruciating. But thanks to time and a healthy cocktail of pharmaceuticals, I'm almost back to normal. Relatively speaking.
This diptych is among four paintings that I'm sending off to a Christmas exhibition in Victoria. Besides being a diptych, they're different because they are painted on cradled panels, with the sides painted black and the whole thing with an even coat of gloss varnish. I like painting on wood panel occasionally -- the paint just glides on and sits differently. And in other good news, I have a new dealer and a new show coming up this month in downtown Vancouver. Once I've done another small landscape for the show in Victoria, I can go back to playing with techniques and images in my studio. I'm itching to do more of those urban collages.
I have also been reworking my website. It's just about where I want it now, though not perfect by any means. If you happen to cruise through and find a broken link, please let me know.
