a poem and a painting

At various stages of my painting's evolution, different genres have suggested themselves- landscape, figurative, abstract, floral- and approaching resolution the painting, rather than having become one or the other, remains "all of the above."

I have taken as reference my own photos of roses and am hand transposing the shapes and contours onto large paper and working with ink.

snapshot

I am thankful to be emerging as an artist amongst others. I was invited to participate in snapshot- an opening installation for arc.hive, a new artist run centre in Victoria, BC  ( Canada. ) The show featured  visual, writing and musical notebook pages. What a rich show it was. I loved looking at every single... Continue Reading →
