Canada’s leading contemporary outdoor and online art fair

Call for Artists is open until March 7, 2024.

TOAF will take place July 12 – 14, 2024.

I have come to understand my use of ‘meditative’ with respect to  landscapes, as our underlying commitment to nature through  painting, is all about light and water, neither of which can be  painted directly. Treating light as pure source, the paintings are  an expression /realization of its effects’   water being transparent, always different, lets us explore /express  its infinite appearance through the very reflections that try to confine  it. Water is a perfect source of abstraction, transparent; we paint  the reflected sky above, the bottom revealed by passing clouds,  the edges contained by forests all around all sides.

southwood road in muskoka lies in the path of a line of snow coming in off georgian bay; the forest along the road are draped with feet of snow while orillia to the south and gravenhurst to the north have mere inches. i snowshoe thru the forests creating my own trails and working out ideas of the magic that become the paintings which allow everyone to walk alongside me thru the winter wonderland
