Hi Everyone:

I'll be at "Artfest on Main" tomorrow in Newmarket, Ontario, painting plein air with some artist friends. The paintings will be sold at the end of the day through a silent auction. If you're in the area, come out and say hello.

I'm not sure if I'll get around to a daily today....maybe later.

Have a great weekend!

Nice Smile


14 x 11 Oil on wrapped Canvas

I went downtown this morning to finish this painting. I've had a busy week with a family birthday, some major computer problems and not much time for painting.

This model has a really beautiful, serene smile that she held throughout the pose..... a great model!

Portrait of a Self Portrait

I thought I would post a visual description of what happens when something goes wrong. I decided to paint this in more saturated colours and then changed my mind. Now I've gotten it muddy and thick and will have to wait until it dries a bit before I continue. Yes, I will fix the glasses.

Stay tuned for the finished painting.

The digital camera is one of the greatest technological advances, and as most teenagers are aware, they provide for hours and hours of entertainment. I'm sure you've seen these technically savvy kids ... stretching out their arms, turning the camera towards themselves and shooting a perfect photo of themselves and seventeen of their closest friends. The cameras are also wonderful when they're alone. All they need is a mirror, bathroom, hallway, any mirror will do, and their trusty digital and they can shoot hundreds of expressive shots and then delete them all with a click of a button.

And the lesson to be learned here is to remember to delete.
