I have four pieces in the Don Valley Club’s fall show, shown here. The show is at Todmorden Mills, and runs from 16 November to 27 November.
These first two are part of an ongoing series I have been doing experimenting with words and image transfers, and some gentle humor or wit. They work well alone or as a pair. If you only see one hanging on the wall, ask to see the other, which may still be in the back. These are unframed, but are painted on 1.5″ gallery canvas, with the edges painted in gray, which I find hangs quite nicely with no frame.
I love imagining that these birds have the same idle conversations that other neighbors have when we chat on our street!
If you’ve ever been to Pelee Island, you’ll love this view as much as I do. Pelee Island is the southernmost point in Canada, and a beautiful place to visit. There is a very long natural spit that seems to connect to the distant horizon, making lovely shapes. The small piece was the study for the larger piece, shown below.
I painted one more version of this image (not in the DVAC show), called Looking South at Pelee. For this one, I used an oblong format, simplified the composition even further, and changed the color scheme to be even more calming.
It’s hanging outside my office right now, and I love it, I think you would too. (If you are interested in this piece, contact me directly.)
