U of A – Cardiac Unit

By | Commission, News, Paintings, Uncategorized | No Comments

A project that has been in the works now for a few years in now all wrapped up.  I was asked to create three paintings that were uplifting and warm feeling, based on specific dimensions for placement in the Cardiac Unit of the University of Alberta Hospital.  After a few rounds of sketches and discussion I painted these three beauties.[soliloquy id="1114"]

Varscona Theatre

By | Client, Commission, News, Paintings, Uncategorized | No Comments

Last year I had presented a number of my prints at the Varscona Theatre for an upcoming show the took place in Edmonton.  In addition, the opening night they were announcing that they received the funding to renovate the theatre in order to provide more space and additional rooms for all the theatre companies that are operating out the cramped older building.  As I was putting up the show, they asked me if I would be interested in painting the theatre as it is now.  It is something that they wanted to keep a piece of the old theatre around and used it as a promotional piece, as well as, a piece that prints could be sold of.  I was totally in!  So here is the final result, you can order prints through the Varscona Theatre!

Idea Exploration

By | News, Paintings, Uncategorized | No Comments

Several years ago friends of mine commissioned me to paint both their children’s bedrooms.  It was super fun and one of the ideas that we started with was a solar system theme for the boys room.  We eventually moved on from that idea, but I was left with these sketches that I thought were fun and my mind has wondered back to it a couple of times, and of course it has evolved a few times since then.  Here are 3 further explorations on the idea of animals exploring space, I figured they would need to take time for exercise 🙂

Bermuda Festival

A new music festival is starting up this summer in Edmonton, it is called The Bermuda Festival.  I was contacted by one of the organizers and was asked to provide a painting on canvas for the festival.  These paintings that local artists are creating are going to be used for the promotional posters for the different music venues that they have.  Then they are going to auction off the paintings for the artists.  The theme was sharks, and this was what I came up with.

Golf Commisson

By | Commission, News, Paintings, Uncategorized | No Comments

In the spring I completed a Commission for  a gent, who wanted a special gift for his parents who are members of a Golf and Country Club in Calgary.  I was super happy to oblige.  I got some images from him of his parents and I set off to gather images of the golf course.  That is where I ran into trouble, the website has views of the greens and some really obstructed views of the club house, so I elected to contact the Country Club.  Well you would have never assumed that it would take 2-3 emails and an phone call over a month in order to get some basic photos of the club house.  At first she did not want to share any with me, it was not until I shared the name of my client that she realized I was legit and that his father was a previous president of the board, and was forth coming with the photos.  Later I realized that I could just go onto Google maps and almost see 360Deg using the street view… sigh.  The end result was was great, rich colours, a bit of mountains in the background.  They were really pleased, which is always a great ending.

Hey all, long time no post.  I have lots to show you it is probably too much for this one post so I am going to do it over a few.

I had a show in March at SNAP Gallery.  I have mentioned before but I lost the post during a hick up with word press.  Ah the wonders of the digital age when things just go poof!!!  Anyways it was a fun to have the show and it was awesome to see everyone out for the opening night.  Here are some pictures of the show as it was up.

Some pictures of my booth set up at Artwalk in July on whyte ave. And some pictures of my Wooden Animal Spirits on display at The Paint Spot.

I also found this cool little video from the nice folks at The Edmontonian.  It is rather old but really neat to see!!!

 

 

>2 Series Finished and Artwalk

By | Paintings, Uncategorized | No Comments

>I want to thank everyone that came out to Artwalk this weekend. It was really nice to hear from a number of people that they liked my work and that even some had previously bought prints from Vivid Print. It was super nice to have had the opportunity to give several of my prints new homes with wonderful people that came by.

At Artwalk, I revealed two series that I had just completed the first was the Mouse and Reindeer series, and the second was a painting series that I had completed painting of Cityscapes with Christmas lights on the buildings making up ornaments.
