Entering one of my paintings in a juried exibition has been always a stressing experience for me. The thought of not being selected creates a feeling of disapproval. Lee Petrie, curator for Pearson International Airport art exhibits and Astrid Ho co-founder of the Propeller Centre for the Arts, jurors for this show, decided that my painting Windows Series deserved to be in the exhibit. Thank you Rick Taylor for your comment on this painting!!!!
TGIF#4 took place at Neilson Park Creative Centre with many visitors attending the reception on May 1st. The exhibit showcased student's work from Steve Rose's art classes. Board of Exploration is the result of my curiosity for exploring new materials. It is a two sided smooth board on corrugated cardboard used in the packaging of heavy items that provided a light weight panel on which acrylics, gesso and other medias could be used successfully. I had a lot of fun and will do it again!!!!!

This year again I have joined my fellow artists at Nielson Creative Centre for the Winter Exhibition. My painting, Ice Blue, an acrylic on canvas reveals one of my favorites colour palettes. I achive freedom in my strokes and mark making when I work on large frames such as this....

As many of you know, I have been spending large part of the Winter abroad for the past five years. During that period it has been difficult for me finding inspiration far from my home-studio. For the first time, this has been a productive year. Here are three of the paintings.

Last Fall, from October 16th-22nd, a fellow artist, Julita Walanska, and myself, exhibited our favourite pieces at the Art Café located on the ground floor of the Gladstone Hotel on Queens Street West in Toronto. The Art Cafe is a well known venue for art shows and musical performances. We were excited and privileged to have an interesting crowd on the opening night. My show included 17 paintings on canvas and 10 on paper representing a selection of my work of the past two years.
