Two New Paintings

It's going to be a busy upcoming few weeks as I've got to get at least five larger paintings done. Time to buckle down! I've got two new ones here to show, "Laundry Whites Day" has been sold and "Early Jasper Autumn" is still available.

Summer's coming to an end-I hope everyone had at least SOME rest and relaxation during the hot months!! See you in September!

Thank Goodness the postal strike is OVER here in Canada and the workers have been legislated back. My small business like SO many others has been really hurt by their actions. I have no time right now during this recession for unions and their ridiculously piddly complaints when there are so many canadians just struggling to survive.

I've got 4 new 8x10" landscapes just completed over the last few days.
If you'd like to see details, please go to my Art 4Sale page. Thank you!!

My latest painting just completed....."Early Spring"

(The bush I bring our dog to is covered in dead branches and fallen trees-creating a fascinating landscape in which to create this piece.

After taking numerous photos of the trees I settled upon this backdrop in which to put my bear, newly awoken from his winter slumber, surveying the world around him.....)

My latest painting just finished....

"A Memory"

Size: 3 feet wide x 2 feet high
Medium: Oil on Stretched Canvas
Price $500.00

Just Completed....

"The Bridge"
Medium: Oil on Stretched Canvas
Size: 36" Wide x 24" High
Price: $500

Story behind this painting: I had come across a documentary online called "The Bridge". It was about the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge and the problems they have with "jumpers". The documentary really affected me and this painting is a combination of my feelings about that documentary combined with a tale told in "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" about a man who went to the top of a mountain to make a wish. If he jumped off, his wish would come true.

And so he wished, then jumped off and he floated away, never to be seen again. And....his wish for his family came true. So this piece is a combination of my thoughts on both of those movies which, in their own ways, affected me immensely.

Yes, it happened. My equusarts email address was hacked into and everyone on my contact list started receiving weird emails from someone in China.

My new address is:

I was meaning to change it to Root Studio anyhow so I suppose forcing this procrastinator was a good thing and my sincerest apologies to those clients who have received the emails-hopefully they will have stopped by now.
