Just back from a gloriously productive stay in Barbados. Lots of new work to catalog, some of which will be shown at a new gallery near Kingston, Ontario for their debut exhibition.
More than ever it seems to me that the right-brained activity of painting doesn't always vibe with the left brained actions of composing an online diary. My apologies for the lack of recent journal updates, but I've been so incredibly busy - outside and away, creating! There are several new paintings in the web site's galleries, notably winterscapes from Lake Louise.
