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.


In a Strange Land

In a Strange Land

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.

It all starts with a mess

Demolition Day

On February first we started a renovation at our house. It began with a demolition of our present kitchen/dining area. Like almost all creative endeavours it began with a mess. It takes a great deal of effort to envision how this present chaos will be transformed a comfortable living space. Experience however tells me that time, effort, sweat, and creativity will win out (fingers crossed).
