Wishing You All Deep Peace for 2019

Wishing you a Very Happy New Year 
and my favourite Gaelic Blessing from our house /studio to yours.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you.
Deep peace of the Light of the world to you.

Some Photos From The Opening

It's been a busy time in the studio and I just realized that I hadn't posted any photos from the opening of the Dark Drawings at the Centre culturel de l'Université de Sherbrooke. They did a beautiful job hanging and lighting the show, a huge thanks to Suzanne and all her team. I'm in the space called Espace Invitational, just outside the main gallery and there is a glorious show of Suzelle Levasseur,  Succession d'e`clats, in the main gallery; all works on paper and graphite with a stunning work, approximately 10 x 30 feet. Photos below. If you have a chance check it out. Opening hours and directions are here

It's White World Out There Today.

It's snowing and blowing here today, often approaching whiteout conditions while last week I came upon this store in the midst of renovation.

Just Because

So it's November and the day is wet and gloomy; the leaves are gone, the snow stayed on the ground for a week, the pond froze; yet there is a quiet stillness and beauty to the day.

1st Taste

Yesterday we woke to a white world, today the pond was frozen over; a taste of what's to come but maybe not quite yet.

Purging the Studio

In my determination to clean up the studio and free up working space and storage space, I tackled a pile of drawings that needed to be culled. So I started ripping and tearing with the intent of putting the pieces in the garbage; but then I noticed the torn edges of the paper and started to play. One step forward, 2 steps back for the studio clean up.

After the Storm

After the storm the moon gleams, the power is back and internet restored. Trees are down but Jack will take care of that problem. I'm still thinking of all the people in the Caribbean 5 weeks without power or clean water.

Getting Back to the Studio

After a rough summer [J. had to have some surgery, he's fully recovered now] the gardens are almost put to bed, ready for winter and I have had more time and inclination to be in the studio. I wanted to let you know that Rebelles / Rebelles opens this Thursday, Nov2, at Galerie Art Plus in Sutton; all the works are small format and all are 9 in x 9 in framed. I will be exhibiting new work from my ongoing exploration of light and shadow. Hope to see you there; the vernissage is Saturday, November 4 from 2 - 5 pm.

It's that time of the year....Rebelles / Rebelles returns.
