Today’s painting kind of reminds me of one of those puzzles that you worked so hard to finish only to find that a few pieces are missing. So here’s to all the unfinished moments in life and the beauty that remains.
Maybe the painting should be sub-titled “Just another Ship in A Bottle”.
The ship enclosed in this mason jar however is an image of The Melita. It was the passenger ship that carried a young Phoebe Connor, her parents, brothers, and sister to Canada as they immigrated in 1920’s. The aforementioned Phoebe was my mom, so the Melita at least to me will never be just another ship.
How did they make those ancient architectural marvels? Today’s post “Licorice Pyramid” offers no clear answers, but is still a tasty treat.
Elevated above the indigo sea rests the “Licorice Hi-Rise”.
At least until the sweet tooth kicks in.
Today’s post is another homage to the humble licorice confectionery (albeit one clothed in gold).
Better than Lego because you can eat them. They are simply towers of tasty fun.
Sounds and sites all fresh and new, morning arrives earlier each day and the world is alive with possibility. Today’s painting “Spring Song” is a painting of one of the heralds of this most anticipated season.
In today’s painting I’m continuing to break the world up into small shapes. “Passage” had its genesis in a trip along the inner passage of British Columbia. Looking for a little calm those strong horizontals deliver.
As I look outside this morning big flakes of snow are descending upon the few brave blades of grass that have broken through to seek the April sun. In a vain attempt to move past the cruel nature of a maritime spring I have posted an image of a new painting, “Splash-Pad”. Palm trees and sunshine, its ok to be delusional once in a while, isn’t it?
Today’s post is a somewhat stylized image of the house I grew up in.
No doubt it faced its share of storm clouds but at its foundation it was a place where the heart was.
