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?
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.
The town’s slogan is “Montague the Beautiful” and sometimes it lives up to that lauded description.
Many of us are drawn to the water’s edge. We long for rivers, lakes, streams, and the ocean as we seek a place to refresh our souls. On a still day, the water’s calm offers up near mirror-like reflections. The brilliant sunshine on your favorite stretch of water reveals billions of shining diamonds. I hope everyone is safe and hopefully soon we’ll all be able to make it to the water’s edge.
Today’s post is a watercolour of a place I had the fortune to pass everyday on my way to work. When you keep your eyes open there is always beauty “Along the Way”.
As we all spend a little too much time inside today’s post is a reminder of what awaits in the near future. Hang in there.
Today’s post is a painting from a while ago. I’m still a fan of arches, and I like the paintings peaceful quality.
Living on an island you spend a bit of time thinking of ways to get to the mainland.
