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:

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,

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.

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 ( ) over the next few weeks in case you're interested.

Summer slow down

I haven't been doing much painting this summer, and I'm really starting to miss it. I've been attending to things like updating my website and looking into making an art book and things like that.

Soon I'll work my way through all of those administrative kind of things, and then I'll hit the studio with a long list of things to try out once I get back to painting.

In the meantime, I hope you're all having a great summer!

Ottawa Art Event Tonight, and new paintings

Event: Today at 6:30 - 8:30pm
Location: Wall Space Gallery, 358 Richmond Road, Ottawa
What: "Talent Untapped" - (see link below)

Hi Everyone,

I know this is really short notice, but Wall Space Gallery in Ottawa is putting on an event for my co-exhibitor Paul Wing, who is a subject of a documentary film, and I believe they are previewing the film tonight. Check Wall Space's Facebook Event page for more details. I will be attending the event too and it would be great to see you if you're able to make it.

I'd also like to say thanks to everyone who stopped by this past Saturday, it was nice to see you all again and chat about art and whatever else. I'd also like to thank everyone at Wall Space for doing such a great job putting on the show.

New Paintings: I've just finished two more paintings. (detail pic above) I've posted them on my website and I'm going to bring them to the gallery today. As well, in case you missed it last time, I've also posted an online preview of some of the paintings in the show.

As always, I post a lot of work in progress pictures of the paintings on my Instagram and Twitter (see links below). And if you can't make to the show, I'll also be posting images from the gallery.

Thanks so much for reading, and looking forward to seeing you at the show!
