I have a piece from my Icelandic landscapes in the Westridge Collection this spring, at the Coast Collective. This painting is from a photograph by Robert Franson (with permission) - one of several of his remarkable photos that I've been inspired to paint. For some of his paintings, see http://www2.cruzio.com/~rfranson/index.html

My previously scheduled demo that was cancelled due to illness has now been rescheduled. The plan is to try out some Yupo paper(artificial paper with rather unique characteristics, see http://yupousa.com/ ) and "re-do" an existing piece to see what I get!
Will be rescheduled - I ended up down and out with the flu.
Time for another watercolour demo at the Coast Collective. I've just moved house so what I do may be supply dependent. I know I have some Yupo paper(artificial paper with rather unique characteristics, see http://yupousa.com/ ) so I may try to "re-do" an existing piece on the Yupo and see what I get!
Wrapped and ready to go! I have three miniatures that have been juried into the Small Treasures group show at the Coast Collective in November, 2016. Come meet with the artists on the evening of November 4, 2016 at 7:00 pm and see the many smaller-sized fine art pieces by Collective members at the show.
It will be almost Halloween so I thought for my next watercolour demo I would show folks my method for creating night scenes. It doesn't seem to be a commonplace subject for the medium, and I am going to contrast the effects that one can get using glazes in blue vs glazes in silver or pearlescent watercolour, as well as how to create stars and moons.
My painting "Icefields Parkway - Red" has been juried into the Westridge Collection (members' gallery) at the Coast Collective. It will be on exhibition and sale there for the months of November and December, 2016.
I will be doing a demo to show how to work on multiple paintings on a single piece of paper in order to create a mini-series of paintings. I learned this technique from my friend, mentor and colleague Gregg Johnson and it's become a favourite way for me to work when I want some small pieces. The demo will be ongoing from 11 - 4 and I will be doing a repeat of the demo on Sunday Sept 18.
