"Little Elbow"



This would be my turning point painting. The cows are there but only as minor players. 
Worthy inhabitants of the scene. My whimsical watercolours meet bovine bliss. 
I love colour and patterns. 
My comfort zone, deep in shape making. Time evaporates. 
I have recently come to realize why i paint the whimsy and colour as i do. 
It so helps with making sense out of a chaotic world that is overrun with evil. 
Within me there is a guilt and sadness that will not dissipate. 
My penance, the paintings. 
An atonement for being a player in the futility. 
Nature has it right. We do not. 
Acrylic on canvas. 20X30

"Charter School"




I have not posted here for some time and thought i might give it a go once again. 
This painting was in a show i am having just now in Calgary at the Ruberto Ostberg Gallery. 
I had 14 watercolours and 19 acrylics completed in time for the opening. 
This is watercolour on Arches CP paper. 22" X 22".
