So, during these uncharted times I am now working from home most days. This actually allows me a bit of extra time to be creative although, it is not necessarily very inspiring.
The Don Valley Art Club has cancelled the upcoming Spring show and likewise all of our club activities. So I am going to use the extra time to work on new items and will post shortly.
Stay safe, stay connected, stay positive and stay home!
Look forward to providing some new works very soon.
Come out to a great show. I have one new piece exhibiting. Look forward to seeing you.

After a busy fall, I have some time to reflect and work on new pieces.
The Don Valley Art Clubs’ November show was a tremendous success and one original piece of mine sold at the opening night artist reception. What a great way to begin my journey with the club. Thank you to all who came out to support me and the club.
I have been working on a variety of pieces – some abstract some impressionism. A few have found new homes, and I am happy to report the commissioned 3ft x 4ft piece was delivered and received very well. That one took a while, and although I am used to painting relatively quickly, I did enjoy the slower process for this piece. Featured above- “Rosedale” copyright @the artist.
I am excited to share that I will be travelling to Ireland in the very near future. Anxious to view the Cliffs Of Moher, Galway, The Burren, Belfast and just beetle around Dublin. Hope to fit in The Abby Theatre, Dublin Writers Museum and The National Library which has the Yeats exhibit. A lot of photographs will be taken and I anticipate the next several months will be absorbed with images of Ireland that will need to come out on canvas. I suspect I will be very busy…oh and a wedding in a castle top off the entire trip.
Cheers and happy Winter all.
I am happy to report that over the summer I became a member of the Don Valley Art Club of Toronto (DVAC). An upcoming show is scheduled to open on Wednesday November 14th with a meet the artists event, and will run until Sunday November 25 at 5:00 p.m. I will be participating in this show and am very excited to hang a couple of pieces in a gallery again after too many years on a hiatus.
Come out and see us, bring your friends and enjoy some beautiful original art. Hope to see you at the artist reception.
