Traditional depictions of natural and fabricated surroundings A collection of figurative works years in the making.. A new series I stumbled upon. After moving from Downtown Kitchener out to the suburbs in November 2017 I discovered a nearby tract of forest. Apparently 11 years of living in the city left a bit of a natural deficit on my psyche. These paintings explore and express my gratitude for the natural world. I'm still working on titles for some of them. I've been working in different directions lately in the hopes of honing in on a new aesthetic. Inspired by the night, the moon, photography, water and reflection. Paintings inspired by an epic bicycle ride. 1589 km down the Danube River through Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary. Many more paintings to come... A new series inspired by my recent trip to New York. Stay tuned for more... One of my favourite places....Landscapes inspired by walking the beach. New landscapes from the wireless age. From Downtown to the GTA and beyond. Venice, Berlin, Prague and Amsterdam From the Granville Alleys to Vancouver Island and Victoria. The Old City, The Underpasses and In Between. Figurative paintings and portraits. Inspired by Canada's favourite pastime. Paintings inspired by the visual bliss of television.
