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.

Work In Progress

This here is the start of something - the first painting of 2016! It has come a long way since this photo. It has become a moody, broody thing. It is almost done so there will be a reveal photo soon.

In the meantime, the first painting of 2016 has sold! The new owners actually chose it in December, but wanted it framed so the transaction wasn't complete until yesterday. It looked fabulous dressed in its exhibition frame- I wish I took a picture of it before it left the studio. I kind of felt a bit melancholy when it left because it was a painting I loved from my trip to Georgian Bay in 2013 and once I saw it with the frame, it sealed my love for it. But alas, I had promised it to a lovely couple so it was too late to claim it for myself. Luckily I know it will be displayed in a caring, art-loving home. Good-bye "Georgian On My Mind"...
