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.
From the mosaics found in Pompeii, to the coloured glass of medieval cathedrals, to the dots of Georges Seurat, the Ben-Day dots of comics, and now with the dominance of the pixel, images have long been constructed out of pure blocks of colour. Today’s painting “Infinity” follows this methodology and hopefully gives a bit of respite in these trying times.
Both of my parents were immigrants to Canada. One was from Ireland, the other was born in Scotland. My mother’s family before their disembarkation attended a church service for the prospective immigrants. During that service the above message was given. Over the past year or so it seems like we are all living in a strange land. I hope you can find prosperity, and more importantly peace as you navigate your own strange land.
O.K. a guy can dream can’t he?
