August 7, 2009


It has been a busy few months and I have let the "Small Paintings" project lapse. I am currently working at getting paintings ready for the 19th Annual McMichael Autumn Art Sale in October 2009. There is more information on my website and it will be announced on the Artscapes Blog when it gets closer. It is a great honour for me to have been selected to participate in this show at such a significant public gallery. I am very excited.

I plan to come back to this blog later this year with an altered structure and plan. The paintings will still be small, but I plan to experiment a little!

Stay tuned...

My ambition seems to have outweighed my available time, and I have been too overwhelmed to post weekly, so the mandate of this site is going to get a little flexible! I will be posting every second week - still on Saturdays. The latest news and what's on the 'big easel' is still at the Artscapes Musings Blog!

Everything else will be the same! Thanks for following and supporting my little project.

Getting Started

This blog is to enable me to share the little paintings.

As a art of my 2009 Goals, I wanted to find a way to help me to move my brush with more frequency by hesitating less. I am accustomed to successfully working large and I am taking a shot a small sketches and paintings to help me speed up my decision making while painting.

A schedule of posts - once a week beginning in the middle of February - will help me to accomplish this. I'll post a launch date shortly. Each of these small paintings will be made available to my readers - my "clan" via a link to my website.

I look forward to accomplishing my goals, continuously grow as a painter and to hopefully share some of that passion and enjoyment of painting with many of you in the process!

See you in February!
