2018 Holiday card design

This year’s card was inspired by a walk in nearby Earlscourt Park after a November snowfall.

Studio Shop sandwich board

Our art gang, St. Catharines’ Niagara Artists Centre (NAC), recently opened a store with artist studios in the rear and upstairs. After Christine and I toured the new space, we remarked that a sandwich board would help visibility along busy St. Paul St.

So NAC asked me to paint a sandwich board! It is a big sign, 40″ tall and featuring a leaping arrow. It has been designed with a space to put posters under a plexiglass cover. It also features a “Cash from Culture” logo I designed.

The sign will debut this Saturday, December 15, at 433 St. Paul Street, part of BOHO $T CA$HRINES, a day long studio crawl and sale (more info: www.nac.org).

Recent Paintings

Last month, fellow artist and friend Melanie MacDonald and I exhibited some large paintings in the Dennis Tourbin Members Gallery at the Niagara Artists Centre.

The recently renovated exhibition space was treat to show at, with crisp white walls and a new lighting set up.

The paintings paired up nicely together, with lots of interplay between themes and colour palette. It also was the first time I’ve shown all three of my “1970s” paintings in one space.

Here are photos of the show (click to view large):
