The intent of this blog is simply to share images of my paintings along with observations experienced while creating them.

My painting style is a contemporary pointillist form that allows me an endless exploration of the notion that nothing on the earth is solitary: everything is connected. Each image posted is a newly finished canvas.

I’ve been painting landscapes as I do for the last fifteen years or so. I left a career in the corporate world back then to paint and more and more follow this passion as a way of life. My paintings are popular: they find new homes quickly. People tell me they enjoy the colours and energy in the images but mostly they appreciate the meditative value in allowing themselves to wander through the dots.

As the artist, painting as I do is very meditative but the viewer is welcome to appreciate the images in response to what ever draws them in. I start a painting with a dot and end the painting with a dot: the process leads me into many places.

    Hello,
    Thanks for all your beautiful work – I have seen some of it at Second Cup in Edmonton – and appreciated much more here on the Blog.

    We recently purchased your painting, “Caterpillar” – with the string of children walking across the street – at the Cops for Cancer fundraiser Gala and wondered if you could let us know any more about it.

    Thanks,
    Bonnie

      Thanks and congratulations on “Caterpillar” finding you! This painting was an wonderful experience both in terms of the concept evolving on the canvas and for a visit I had while painting in a public place as I enjoy doing. The visit was from an entirely different group of pre-school pep[;e walking in “Caterpillar” fashion. As they walked by they came over to see what I was doing. Soon they recognized things and began asking if it was them in the painting. Of course it wasn’t but I quickly got them to suggest where they might be in the image by looking for the red sweater and the blue jacket, etc., they were wearing. Everyone had a turn and they left on their holding the rope adventure feeling quite satisfied.

    Did you live in Surrey and attend Harold Bishop Elementary School as a boy?
