Every image has a story. Here are some images containing stories about my life after I returned from Malaysia back to Canada.
I got my first real artist studio! What a fine feeling, to have "a room of my own". Although still a shared space, this studio was a big step up from painting in the tiny galley-style kitchen of my (also shared) apartment. First thing I did was to stretch and gesso a few canvases.
I got back into "real" life drawing - in Malaysia, officially a Muslim country, art models were clothed. The frustration of the interrupted line when drawing may have been a factor in spurring me to get more serious in my figure drawing/painting explorations over the next few years.
