Burning of the Vines Event at Vinoteca

All I can say is that it was awesome. Fatima outdid herself (if that is even possible) and the weather held until it was over. Coco Jones may have photos posted on Facebook if you want to check it out (in case you didn't know, I don't do Facebook).

Below is one of the pieces I finished for the show. Most of the work will be hanging for the month of July, so why not kill two birds with one stone and make a reservation for lunch. Sitting on the deck, overlooking the vineyard, sipping excellent wine and eating one of Fatima's creations is nothing short of heaven (I had the caesar salad with proscuitto, and the pasta with chicken and peas in gorganzola cream sauce...OMG!)

A Stellar Event at Sopa

U8 was, yet again, a huge success. Click here to view photos from the opening night.

My triptych study titled 3SUM sold, as did a grouping of "smalls" I had sent for their Christmas show. I am now working on several new pieces for Wallace Galleries and should have photos for my website soon.

The Sooke Fine Art show is still accepting submissions until May 25, and this year they are accepting digital images online for jurying. I am undecided whether I will submit this year or not...the "juries still out" on that one.

Anthony White Artwork, "The Money Series"

I don't know quite how I came across Anthony White Artwork, but I have recently discovered this Australian artist with an attitude very similar to that of my friend Jimmy Wright (who passed away in 2008). I don't agree with all of Mr. White's opinions (as I often didn't with Jimmy's) regarding the world of conceptual art, but I did find it all a very entertaining and thought provoking read. Since you might enjoy it, too, check out Anthony White's Guide to Conceptual Art. I also like the idea behind his in-your-face "Money Series" (again very Jimmy) and, as I wrote in my recent newsletter, if I had an extra $176 kicking around for fun, I would probably purchase this next painting in the series.

Nobody Special by nobody special

Have you heard of Blurb.com? It's this great place where you can create your own books: coffee table books, portfolios, children's picture books, and more. Well, I wrote this slightly humorous, tongue-in-cheek fable, Nobody Special, which is now available in 7" x 7" hard or softcover format if you want to actually own one in print (and are not put off by the exorbitant shipping cost); however, I have made the story available so that it can be read entirely online for free. Why? Because in today's world, we all need something to help us sleep better at night, and I don't believe in pharmaceuticals.

It's Almost That Time Again

I have just put the last coat of varnish on "3SUM," a small three panel piece for U8. You can see it in the Abstract Portfolia of my website. Each panel is 10" x 10" but because it turned out so well (and I do love it!), I decided it will be a study for a much larger triptych.
