I wanted to share  news with you about the 3 exhibitions that are happening this month around Ontario. Please click here to see the details about these current exhibitions at Headwaters Arts Gallery in Caledon, Neilson Park Creative Centre and Papermill Gallery in Toronto. 


Yesterday I accepted an offer of  showing with a small group of Ontario Society of Artists  members which includes several past presidents of the society.  City of Toronto's Assembly Hall gallery  will host "Expressions of Landscape" from  January 17-February 14th. The Opening Reception will be on Thursday January 17th  7-9 pm. You are most welcome! 

Decisions remain as to which pieces  I will exhibit in the Expressions of Landscape show.   I am thinking of several mountains and perhaps our meadow. I was looking at an early work of the meadow (below) while it was under cultivation for the native planting. Possibly an updated painting of this same view, 6 years later?

 

Lately I have been playing with elongated canvases both horizontal (see above) and vertical. Today I was painting a vertical slice of the mountain at Kicking Horse Pass. This was suggested by a larger view showing the Spiral (train) Tunnels.  I'll save this one for the January show at the Assembly Hall. As always, I welcome your comments and would be pleased to hear that you took in one or two of the shows. Cheers!
