This November Issue of The American Art Collector Magazine has included samples of my work and a write up on me to their feature on ‘Planes, Trains and Automobile’ Art. As a long time subscriber to this magazine, it will be a fun experience to see my own work amongst its pages. We featured ‘Nash Harvest’ as it was one of my more recent available paintings but it sold before the magazine saw print. Thank you again to all of you that have taken such a strong interest in my work over this last year. The sale of original work has been outstanding with many paintings selling while still on the easel wet with paint. I am indebted to you by your support.
My latest painting ‘Great Blue Heron’ is the start into the cold winter themed paintings for the year. I like to try to stay within the feel of the season when creating these paintings and as such I look forward to the change. Cheri and I came across this snowy winter scene last year while walking our dogs along the Pitt River. The blue gray feel of the atmosphere fit perfectly with the colours on the Heron. I was really drawn in to the colours found on the pilings and the cold monochromatic feel to the background. The coldness of the scene is further evident by the puffed up feathers and positioning of the Heron and his attempt at insulating himself from the elements.
This painting ‘Great Blue Heron’ is acrylic on canvas, 22″x14″ and is one of the paintings I plan to have in attendance at the Garibaldi Art Club Fall Show, November 16, 17, 18 at Fraserview Village Hall, corner of 227th st., and 116th ave, Maple Ridge.
