Infinity

Infinity

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.

Gallery 78 in Fredericton New Brunswick has an annual show for the season called Christmas Choice. The paintings above are my contribution to the show for this year. For many, Christmas is a treasure trove of memories, and these images remind me of some special ones. I hope the Ghosts of Christmas’s Past are kind to you this season, if they’re not please be kind to yourself.

Fall is just around the corner and it’s a great time for preserves. On Prince Edward Island a great place to pick up a tasty bit of the summer’s harvest is The Prince Edward Island Preserve Company. Today’s watercolour is a painting of one of their delicious creations.
