Today’s painting is another “gift”. You never know when you might need a pair of scissors.
A few years ago someone close to me celebrated a significant birthday (you know one of those that end with a zero). To mark the occasion a few of us made a collection of origami cranes to match each year the notable person had made a trip around the sun. In today’s painting one of those origami cranes makes reappearance.
Today I started working on a new canvas. At this point I’m just laying down some colour. I’m trying to get a little watercolour wash like effect going on in the acrylics.
Today’s painting is another gift image. The crossword puzzle came from a huge puzzle in the Globe and Mail. We never totally finished the puzzle, and a few of the answers are wrong (should never use pen). In the end using it as gift wrap seemed a good re-purposing.
Today’s painting “Aladdin & Pandora” was made a number of years ago for The Great Garden of the Gulf Juried Exhibition. It includes a number of objects gleaned from my childhood home. The wooden chair, the large pickle jar, and the tin cookie box are all archival items from the Henderson household.
Today’s painting “Starts with ZED” is of a small carved Zebra. We have a small zoo of these types of carvings and it’s always a pleasure to add a new member to the group. The painting can be seen at Gallery 78 in Fredericton New Brunswick.
Today’s painting is from a number of years ago. It is another rendition of that icon of Phoebe’s kitchen, the Singer “Sewing Machine”.
