One Hundred Paintings Donated by Montreal ArtBombers

A beautiful mosaic of artists and art is coming together this Thursday, April 10th at the Centre d'Art Voland Montreal ArtBomb is celebrating it's one year anniversary by weaving this tapestry of art and artists in a unique and unusual manner.  

Purchase a ticket for $50 and receive a wrapped original painting at the door. This painting is yours to keep or if you wish you may trade with another guest in the room for a different one. This is where the fun begins...the subjective nature of art is such that the artwork that one person falls in love with another doesn't even cast a second glance at. 

The artists themselves will be there with a full gallery of their larger artworks hung "art salon style" which means floor to ceiling artwork. There is sure to be something of interest for everyone. 

Discover Art from the inside out and see life through the artist's eyes for an evening. 
Come and relax, have a glass of wine and chat with the artists themselves. 

Tickets are selling out fast so don't delay your purchase. 
TIckets available HERE.

Earth Garden

A new painting that I have been returning to day after day as a sanctuary of peace. A hectic, active outward life is balanced by this eternal inner forest.

Mystery Alive

The Edge of Mystery / 30" x 30" / acrylic on panel board

Painting on the Floor

 The other day I needed to find a spot to work out the composition of a painting I want to do. I noticed the cardboard on the floor was beckoning me so I sat down and started working out the shapes and colors.

Peter Doig Exhibition in Montreal

Peter Doig has long been a favorite painter of mine so when I heard his paintings were coming to The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts I was thrilled. His unapologetic painterly approach to painting and beauty in an art world infatuated with irony and dystopian concepts is as refreshing as a slash of red cadmium across a dark painting. He breathes life into painting like no other contemporary artist I know.  His work sings, hums and dives deep into your belly and stirs you from the inside out.

Calcinatio / 24" x 30" / acrylic on canvas

The process of burning away the inessential was part of the alchemical phenomenology of fire intended to bring about a purification. The alchemists called the process calcinatio.

Preview of Tremblant Exhibition

This is the launching of my new store as well as the online preview for the upcoming exhibition at Galerie 806 in Mont-Tremblant, QC which opens December 19th and runs until January 15th, 2014.
This exhibition is a celebration of an amazing year; meeting new people, traveling to new places and discovering the endless potential of this planet to reveal her beauty in new and invigorating ways. I am humbled and awed by the process of painting and the magical, mystery tour it continually takes me on. I feel it to be a great privilege to live this world as a painter. The paints not only guide my heart & hands but opens my eyes to marvels I would never have even noticed were I not stopping and taking the time to look as is necessary when making a painting.
