In November I created a couple of fun oil canvases for my birthday utilizing a bouquet I received from my mom of Star Gazer Lillies.

Evergreen Acrylic Sketch

I have been playing around with an old concept of mine again but before I jump into oil I produced a few little images in Acrylic to test some of the logistics out beforehand.

While staying in Toronto for a couple of months in 2020 I – mostly because of quarantine – spent countless hours staring out the big beautiful windows of the dormitory I had lived in during second year of Univeristy.

I have created many watercolours and drawings of the sky line facing both North at Casa Loma and South at Robarts Libary at UofT as a result of this past-time.

All works were created on half torn sheets of heavy letter sized watercolour paper in oil paint.

Recent Works.

Transition period. The move to the lake.

I made an effort to continue painting shortly after moving. It was the late spring of 2018. I had a table with chalks and crayons littering up with castaways in notebooks. I found a small pile of postcard sized, natural fibre sheets of paper – probably intended for calligraphy and note making. It’s my favourite paper to ply with the oils. For these sketches in oil I drew out a pencil outline first. Graphite competes with amber linseed to warp the colours, sometimes suspending them in time in between phases amongst the various pigments, so it is too soon to judge if I even like the painting. These have cured for 3 years now and I am satisfied they are finally “done.”

As they cured some of the more vibrant hues dissolved into the paper through the linseed carrier to resemble only a faint ghost of their former application. As a result I have grown to enjoy them better with age, as I am only sharing them now in 2021.

Colours have cured as they aged overtime.
