Fluctuations

Happy New Year!  The solstice has passed, and we continue to move toward the light.  While things may seem rather dark in the immediate environs, I am focussing on the light which I know will increase, because nothing ever doesn't change.


I am working on building a new website.  Very exciting, very good focus for 2021.
 
Someone else is doing the framework for me, and I have been going through years' worth of images, deciding what to load into my new site, and how to organize everything.  20+ years of very productive art-making: it's a lot of images!

Here are a few which hold a nice nostalgia for me.

My very first studio back in the 1990's.  I was so happy!

The indestructible fig tree.
This plant has been with me also 20+ years

Downtown Calgary studio, ca. 2008
where art sales took off, enabling me to paint full-time

examples of the work I was making at that time

beautiful tools of the trade


A new direction in its infancy


basement studio ca. 2012

a studio must contain a living plant or two :)

trying for asymmetrical symmetry

symmetry of a different sort

making rocks for an installation piece, ca. 2016

yes, I love my brushes

"The Creative Brain"
An art-school-era response for the assignment: create an artist toolbox.
It continues to bubble away, lighting up both artist and studio with the joy of creation.


There are, of course, many, many more photos of studio, work in process, land arts, installation arts, residencies, arts education, exhibitions etc.  You can find some of them here on this blog which dates from 2006, if you scroll through the history in the sidebar.

Soon I will have a new blog embedded in my new website, but I'll leave this blogspot one up for the archives :)

Thanks as always, dear Reader, for your time.
