Standing Against The Saw-Algonquin Park. 24X36 inches, oil on canvas. This was a studio work from a series I did on Autumn in Algonquin. This particular work is poignant because it was an area denuded in the name of profit, one that every so called interest group has failed to prevent or stop. This work was part of a show at Gallery Indigena in Stratford Ontario this past summer of 2012. For more info please go to www.galleryindigena.com
Entre Chein Et Loup - Between Dog and Wolf Medium: 22X28 inches oil on canvas. This was from a canoe trip into Burnt Island Lake in Algonquin Park. The moon was on it's ascendency into the firmament. The shadows lengthening, deepening across the way along the shoreline. A time of tension and relaxation..

At the Chalmers House, Canadian Music Centre, Joesph Street, Toronto. The event was a fund raiser for the Elizabeth Bishop Legacy Recording Project. I was fortunate to have had the pleasure of meeting Acadian/Canadian Soprano Suzie Leblanc and listening to her fine performance that evening. A painting I had donated was auctioned off at the end of the event. I was pleased with the results as the money will assist this very worthwhile cause.
