Some Good Market Comes to Town at Canon Wood Hall (aka St. Thomas Hall) on Military Road, Saturday Oct. 19, 10am-4pm. Come on down! I'll have shirts, linocuts, prints of my paintings, and new embossings. (And please say hello to Alphonse or he'll get his nose out of joint.)

BTW, I've been a little more focused on social media updates these days than this blog. Blogs seem to be waning in popularity. I too have noticed my traffic dropping and driving people here seems like an arduous task. I'll continue to do periodic updates but if you're interested in catching my day-to-day activity, check out my Facebook page.

Vallotton's image (see below) is an etching. Mine is soft pastels on paper (above). Approximately 12"x13". The soft pastels are chunky... probably the wrong medium for such an image. Tough to get fine detail. It's a bit rough but I'm happy with it. Colours are Van Dyke Brown and Naples Yellow. I simplified the background at the top. And added some puffins. :) Can't wait to hang it in the house.

"Noble Cod" is off the easel and at the framers. He'll join me at future markets in print form in the coming weeks. Arthur the Stout Cod re-emerged in the workshop today (see below), after a lengthy absence. Hoping to make quite a few embossed pieces in the coming weeks.

It's been a while since I've poured some paint. Had a hankering for it lately and this is the result from Monday evening. It's not exactly subtle... has quite a bit going on actually... but I'm happy with the result. There are several patches of crazing on each panel which was unexpected considering the amount of pouring medium I used. I like the look of it. Letting it fully dry for a week or so before putting a coat or two of varnish on it.
I love taking the time to look at the details of each panel, letting my brain try to make sense of the chaos... eventually faces, creatures and landscapes start to emerge. Although I can't wait to hang this one in the house, it's certainly for sale! I'll post it in the shop soon... if you don't see it, message me for pricing/availability.
Poured acrylic on three canvas panels
