Happy to hear that my painting "Tribe" (acrylic, 45" x49") was accepted in the 12th annual open International juried art competition, Painting on the Edge. The show is on from Aug. 13 - Sept. 7, 2014 at the Federation of Canadian Artists gallery on Granville Island, in Vancouver, B.C. Opening night is August 21st from 6 to 8 p.m. Everyone welcome.
These measure about 30"h x 20"w and are done on paper with charcoal and acrylic. Each one comes into being without a preconceived idea about how they will look. I start with an oval and some marks then the evolution begins. I try to retain a certain moment or feeling that happens along the way. The real exciting part is watching how they change during the process...one tiny mark can alter the whole feeling or attitude.
