Update Time


November 2023

Cold and grey now and snow expected any day.  However, inside the ideas are warming up and, as we prepare to meet the winter,  we are reminded of just how marvelous the change of season is.  I love fall.  Fall, not pre-winter grey, but the brilliant colour of autumn and the freshness of the air.  This fall was amazing and I enjoyed every day.  

This month I’m reading novels from my high school days and loving them. Started with Watership Down and burrowing down with all the lovely bunnies in the warren was delightful.  Open on the desk today is Ken Keysey’s ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest’.  Yes, the movie was okay but the book takes one into a bleak but somehow hopeful place.  Where there’s life there’s hope.

Finding a place for writing at every turn and a recent collaboration with fine art photographer Heidi Leverty is the latest POST.  Check it out.  This took me back to my rural roots and there’s a real comfort in that place too.

Paintings and artwork pieces

Moose in the Woods

Oil on canvas.  A large canvas (4 X 5), which was initially rather daunting, but once he started to come to life it just made perfect sense.

I love a moose.

Gorilla (of my dreams)

And I’ve always loved gorillas.  I think we (as a species) pale in comparison to many others.  Again – a large canvas but not as large as the moose.

Oil on canvas.

Natural Sculpture

Have been playing around with sculptures made from natural materials.  Gathered and waxed (just as I did as a child) maple leaves and then pressed but then I went just a bit further into uncharted presentation territory.  I’m happy with the result.  They are so sturdy and beautiful.
