November 10, 2016: I was interviewed by Daily Paintworks as their Spotlight Artist for a week! Read my interview on the DPW News blog!

Ongoing: my 8x8" original oil paintings are available exclusively at Darrell Bell Gallery in Saskatoon. For a limited time several of my large oil paintings are also available at
their new street front gallery on 21st Street (formally Lifestyles By Darrell Bell Gallery).

Ongoing: a selection of my larger work is available at The Black Spruce Gallery at Northside on Highway 2 just before the turn to Christopher Lake.

Wild Places

This went through many changes for a small painting. It is better now, at least I think it is, but I guess you will have to take my word on that since I didn't take a photo of the original version. 

I have to say I am not really a fan of painting on canvas boards. I don't like the texture on a hard surface. I like canvas when it has a spring to it and I like my boards smooth.
