New Robot Paintings Posted

red devil - 16"x20"


I've finished some new robot paintings and I've posted them to my website. They're all done in my undertexting style, which is continuing to progress, as I'm still trying out new things with it.

I know it's been a while since I've sent out an update, and I would've liked to have sent one out sooner, but I had surgery on my shoulder to deal with a recurrent injury, and that put me out of commission for a while. After I recovered enough to get back into the studio, I got my head back into it and shook off the rust by repainting over top of an older piece:

After that, I finished some of the robot pieces that I wasn't able to finish before The Artist Project Show. Check the link above to see them all.

Next up: I'll probably be doing another series of new robot paintings, so keep an eye on my Instagram/Facebook/Twitter feeds to see how those are progressing.

Robot Prints: As well, I'm thinking about making prints of my robot paintings available. If you might be interested in something like that, please let me know.



Thanks so much for reading,
cheers,

So about those robot paintings I was going to try to finish...

 

for @theartistproject : I've been waylaid by the flu, unable to work, and exchanged the paintbrushes for wads of tissues. This is pretty disappointing as I really liked where these pieces were going, and it would've been great to show them next week, but what can you do but try to get better? Hopefully I remember to get my flu shot next year, I'd forgotten how rough the flu is.

New winter paintings online

Here are some new winter paintings for you:


I also uploaded this one:


I've also uploaded some close-up detail photos, so you can get a better idea of what they look like. 

I'll be showing these at The Artist Project in Toronto in a few weeks.

My art book, Great Canadian Emptiness, has arrived from the printer, and is ready to order.


 
Hi Everyone,

My art books have arrived from the printer! The print quality is very good and I'm really happy with how they've turned out. Great Canadian Emptiness is $29 and you can order it online through my Shopify store at this address:


http://aporia.myshopify.com/products/great-canadian-emptiness-artbook

You can also send me a personal cheque if you'd prefer to pay that way. If that's your preference, email me and I'll send you my snail mail address.

I know I originally thought I could sell them for $25, but unfortunately I forgot to take the US-Canadian exchange rate into account when deciding on a US printer, so I've had to bump up the price a little bit.

Now I'm going to get back to the studio to try to get some new paintings finished for the Toronto Artist Project again this coming February. I'll have more updates on that as the date gets closer, but there's more info here: The Artist Project

Thanks so much for reading,
cheers,
Marcel

Web site maintenance finally finished!

Super defender of the universe (detail)
Super defender of the universe (detail)
Now I can finally get back to painting! (Woo!)
I've been working on the site over the summer, and I believe it's much improved, especially for browsing through the paintings.
  • It's now responsive/mobile friendly
  • I shrunk the header/navigation area so there's more screen space for the images
  • I added close-up / detail photos to some of the paintings, so you can get a better idea of the texture of the pieces. ( see image above )
Have a look, and let me know what you think.

Cheers,
Marcel

Fall Mini-Update

It's back to school time! Not for me, obviously, for my kids I mean. Anyway, I've been working on some fixes on my website, and on making a portfolio book of my art work.

 

Here's my computer screen while I was fixing up the images for printing. I think I've got it all sorted out. Once I get the proof and everything's all good, I'll send out an email and post here that's it ready if you'd like to get one.

 

I'm also going to be posting the paintings to my Instagram ( https://instagram.com/p/7xzskFK1_Q/ ) over the next few weeks in case you're interested.

Cheers,

Marcel
