Time to dust off our boots and polish our belt-buckles!

The count down has officially started for our next show in July at the Calgary Stampede! This show is our biggest of the year and is always so much fun for so many reasons.  Being an originals only show, I get a lot of enjoyment seeing my years worth of hard work and effort hanging all together in our booth. I am very excited by the work I have created this year but they need to be seen in person to really be appreciated. Come down and visit us during the event! We are really looking forward to seeing you all!

This painting captures an old 1915 Harley on the back roads of Montana. Cheri and I found this location along the Yellowstone River east of Livingston, Montana. The old sign was mostly illegible but it was a distance marker to the various family owned ranches down the road. As the weather shows, we were treated to a huge thunderstorm later that day!

This painting captures an old Gambrel Roof Barn in a scene echoing the foothills. It is a scene that I composed using various different locations and photographs from our travels, versus a particular place in reality. It isn’t as often that I find a white painted barn and I really wanted to emphasize that colour throughout the painting. As a result I chose two white horses standing at ease in the scene, and played off these values throughout the mountains and clouds.

I have two new illustrations featured through the Royal Canadian Mint that have come out this month! The first one was the Battle Of The Atlantic. This coin featured the sinking of the HMCS St. Croix by the German sub U-305. Cheri and I spent a great deal of time between the Maritime Museum and the Vancouver Public Library learning about the battles that took place in the Atlantic during WW2. The Second features Captain Cook and the HMS Resolution meeting the Nu Chah Nulth people and their chief Maquinna. That was a fascinating coin to research and learn about the history of Captain Cook and his explorations, as well as learning about the way of life of the people of Nootka Sound.
